Kilometeres in tasks


I'm looking for possibility to write kilomteres driven by our service engineer in his tasks.
We are the company which sales and services instruments for chemical laboratories.
We use Act! version, hot fix 1.
We have base of instruments in Groups. For example:

 Groups -> Instruments -> spectrometer. I used to introduce activity for our service engineer (for example: installation) for this instrument (spectrometr)

and at the clearing of this activity I need to write number of kilometers which travels our engeneer to installation this instruments.
Is there any possiblity to write the kilometers in Act! which will appear in monthly statements ?
I will be grateful for your advices.

Re: Kilometeres in tasks

it's not possible out of the box to add a field to tasks. So, your options would be to parce the Regarding line so you sould split it out later in excel


for example standardize regarding.

Mileage:XXXXkm Notes:  here is my note


then export the history using the export to excel feature of the history tab.

then split that field into two in excel or any other reporting tools


alternatively, I believe Durking Impact (from Durking Computing) will allow you to add a field to the activity screen adn add a field there.
