Fuel Import

Note: Any fuel card provider that can provide a file meeting the specifications below can be used to import fuel purchases

In order for the import to work, the data file provided by the fuel card provider must meet these requirements:

  • Fixed length text file. Excel spreadsheets, CSV files, or tab-delimited files will not work.
  • All fuel purchses must be set to the same time zone in the file.
  • Unit Codes must be identical between Encompass and the data file.
  • Dates and times cannot include any punctuation (Ex: 08222018 = good, 08/22/2018 = bad).
  • Data must include:
    • Unit Code
    • Date of Purchase
    • Time of Purchase
    • City of Purchase
    • State of Purchase
  • Unit number MUST be identified on each fuel transaction (only having the driver will not be sufficient).

 

Once the import file has been obtained from the provider, a schema needs to be added for the fuel to import into Encompass. The schema will be specific to the file setup for your provider. This schema is added in Setup > Maintain Fuel Tax Info > FTM Fuel Import. Click Add new...
