Note: the user may not see the adjustment on the app and will have to refer to the wed dashboard to see the adjustment

Note: To Disable the process select the Show "Over Reported Mileage" Column and remove the number in the box.

Show "Over Reported Mileage" Column

When the selection for Show "Over Reported Mileage" Column is selected and the Threshold % and at least by are populated the web will calculate the difference in the recorded mileage and the Google Suggested Driving Distance. If the recorded trip mileage exceeds the threshold by at least the set amount it will show the total mileage over reported in the web dashboard.
