Back to ELD Driver App

Team Driving

Team Driving is the ability for two or more drivers to work in tandem which enables them to cover longer routes in a shorter amount of time. This also enables them to deliver goods/products to customers in the fastest amount of time possible while minimizing driver fatigue and other safety risks.

Each driver can log in to the app and can monitor his daily working status as given in the example below:

  1. Tap the Change Duty Status dropdown list.
  2. Select ‘DRIVING’ as the driver duty status for the first driver from the said drop-down list.

    Note: Adding another driver who has the same driver duty status of DRIVING’ is not allowed.)
  3. An alert message dialog will then be displayed. (Refer to NOTE above.)

  4. Tap ‘YES’ to automatically change the status of the other driver to ‘ON DUTY’.

Make Primary Driver

When a co-driver is on Review Mode and that the vehicle is not in motion, the Make Primary Driver option is available to make the co-driver as the primary driver.

  1. Logging in a co-driver
    See Switch Driver Tab for the steps

    Tap on the Make Primary Driver button to display the Make Primary Driver dialog with a Yes or No confirmation.

    1. If Yes is tapped
      1. It will restart the vbus service again then makes the co-driver as the primary driver
      2. When the co-driver is now the primary driver, the option will no longer be available for the said account
    2. If No is tapped
      1. It will close the dialog

    Note: The Make Primary Driver option will not display if the main driver (current primary driver) status is Driving, instead a different text will display.

    Switch back to the Main Driver’s account, on the Driver’s list, the Make Primary Driver Option is not visible. But when tapping the co-driver’s email address the Make Primary Driver option is available
