Drivers

Overview

The Drivers tab displays the duty status and driving activity for a set of drivers.

Select one of the options listed below, then select the group or driver to view from the drop-down list.

  • Depot: Lists all drivers in the selected depot (driver's home base).
  • Driver or Vehicle Group: Lists drivers by groups you created to assist in reporting.
  • Driver: Lists all drivers who are in the same depot as you.
  • Search: Search for a specific driver by name or driver ID. When you select Search, the drop-down list changes to a search box. Search results include all matches and partial matches. For example, "Pau" will return "Paul," "Paula," and "John Paul."

Check Logged in to show only drivers who are currently logged in to a mobile device.

DOT/MOT Clock

The number of driving hours remaining for the driver. This represents the lowest value of all HOS clocks (Driving Hours, On Duty Hours, and Cumulative On Duty Hours).

Note: In the next few columns, fields shaded yellow indicate that drivers are within one hour of violating the rule. Fields shaded red with a negative number show drivers in violation and the length of time spent driving in violation. Drivers get a warning if they are within one hour of violating a rule. The warning time is configurable but Omnitracs recommends that you leave the value at 60 minutes.

Your company's vehicle ID. Select the ID to view driving activity on the vehicle.

Last Duty Change

The exact date and time the driver last indicated a status change. The time is based on the geographic location of the driver and is always shown in 24-hour format.

Last Recalc

The date and time the driver's logs were retrieved from the mobile unit and compared against the HOS rules in order to:

  • Determine if any warnings or violations took place
  • Update the available hours (Driving, On Duty, and Cumulative On Duty clocks) displayed at the top of the Driver Details and Driver Week pages
  • Update the current location of the vehicle

Recalc(ulation) occurs when a duty status change is processed from the mobile unit, when a user accesses or "refreshes" the Driver Details page or Driver Chart page, or every 30 minutes from the last recalculation.
