Just a quick point.

I have listed a couple of returning empty vans.
On the dashboard to me it isn't very clear as it shows vehicle journey and the time it was posted and not the clearing time.
Am i doing something wrong??

Probably everything is ok, that's a list of news so shows the time you did it.

Check your empty entries on the courier directory, do they look right? (Waiting for there to be a timezone bug or something now!!)

I don't think it looks right, The empty location is incorrect it is showing the point of return.

Also no mileage is displayed.

Yeah the clearing time is wrong too.

I accept that we could do a lot to make more of and improve our journeys, however the empty location is not wrong. You specified that you were going to 'NG10', 'NG10' and 'NG10 1JR' on your journeys. The problem here is also that we're just displaying where you're going TO, hence the confusion.

Also I think I'm right in saying that the time is not completely incorrect but precisely 1 hour out? (i.e. I need to go and fix a GMT/BST bug).

No problem i would rather point something out and be wrong rather than not, If you know what i mean.

Yep, thanks for bringing it up. I'll fix the time bug later today.

Also if nothing else, if something is technically correct but you've got the wrong end of the stick or it's unclear it lets me know that how stuff is being communicated is not as good as it could be so all your feedback is useful and appreciated.
