ClearMechanic has always enabled searching and retrieving old Repair Orders in each service center's "Private Dashboard," which can only be accessed by the service center with user name and password. The new "Live Gallery Search" feature enables public searching directly from the service center's website. The goal is to help employees and customers who do not need every detail surrounding a photo upload and simply want to "find it now."
There is auto-complete capability built into the search feature as well, making it simple to find the correct repair recommendation with just a few numbers from the RO.
For detailed searching by technician name, consumer name, Repair Order, date and time, repair type and other criteria, the Private Dashboard is still the better option. The Private Dashboard also provides important administrative data related to each vehicle photo / video and enables administrative controls not found in the Live Gallery.
But, the new Live Gallery Search feature is the quickest way to find an image for immediate viewing by the consumer. See screenshots below.
