Forgot Your Password
We all forget our passwords from time to time. There has always been the option for a user to reset their own RAMM password. They way this is done has recently been changed. A new tool from Google, reCAPTCHA is used to prevent passwords being changed by bots or robots.

Understanding the Utility Operator Register
Submitica and CAR Manager users do not always use the correct names of Utility Operators. They also use incorrect spelling and even organisations which are not Utility Operaters. This is most unhelpful when you are creating your Utility Operator activity reports. You can now ensure that Submitica and CAR Manager users select only Utility Operators from the MBIE official lists of Electricity and Telecommunications Utility Operators or those that you have recognised. Check this out here (5:06).
Windows 10 Upgrade
RAMM users who have upgraded to Windows 10 should be aware that the Edge browser which is bundled with Windows 10 does not support the Silverlight plugin. This means that users cannot launch and run the RAMM Silverlight applications such as RAMM GIS and CAR Manager. They should use Internet Explorer 11 is also bundled with Windows 10.
Using Site Dispatch Templates
Site Dispatch Templates are very useful for field staff who perform the same tasks on a regular basis at the same Assets or Locations. See how to add them as part of the Contract Patrol creation process here. Site Dispatch Templates are Contract Patrol specific. They are available to Patrol operators only if they have been Associated with their Contract Patrol. See how here. Watch this video here to understand how you can use Site Dispatch Templates and how useful they can be to you and your staff. (4:26).

This video gives an explanation of the CAR Warranty Expiry process.
