In the Correct Duty Status window, you can manually change a driver's duty status. To open the Correct Duty Status window, navigate to the Driver Details window and select the edit icon for the relevant duty status.
A duty status can be changed or you can split it into two records. When you split the record, one record retains the old status and the second is assigned to a new status. Segments can be split repeatedly to create multiple edits for one original duty status. If you undo a correction, all corrections made to an original duty status are undone.
After you save an edit with a remark, a text icon appears next to the duty status on the Driver Details page. Hover over the icon to display the remark.
Note: Neither you nor drivers can edit drive time.
The following information appears in the header of the window:
- An ELD Device label in the header of the Correct Duty Status window indicates that the reporting device is running ELD-compliant firmware and ELD mode is active. Edits to ELD-enabled devices show PENDING until the driver reviews and approves the changes. If the driver is not logged in, you will see Driver Not Logged In in the header.
- An AOBRD Device label in the header indicates that the reporting device is an AOBRD. Edits to units with AOBRD firmware update within 15 minutes, assuming the driver is logged in.
- The status, date, and time that you are manually correcting.
- Duty status
- Select the new duty status from the drop-down list.
- Select an exception if applicable:
- 16-hour Request (US only): Exemption can be granted only once in 7 days following 10 or more hours off-duty and/or sleeper berth time.
- Off-Duty Deferral, Ferry Crossing: Apply only in Canada.
- Wait-Oil Well: Applies to drivers who are set up to take this exemption.
- Rest-Hazmat (on-duty only): Applies to drivers who are set up to take rest breaks while on duty.
- Scissors Icon
- Select the scissors icon to split a duty status record or to go back to the original single record. When you split a record, you can specify a different duty status, the date and time it began, its duration, and the location of the vehicle when the duty status began.
- If you are splitting a record, enter the correct information for the start of the new duty status. Time stamps and duration of duty status information change as you update this information.
- The duration of the duty status in hours and minutes.
- Vehicle Location
- The vehicle's position at the time of the duty status. This position is relative to the nearest town, city, or point of interest. You can adjust the location if necessary.
- For MCPs, this is the distance driven for a recorded or added driving segment. You can adjust the mileage in whole numbers.
Note: If you split a duty status, the point of interest (POI) and other location information are copied to the second part of the split. The POI is expected in the format "City, State/Province," where state or province is abbreviated.
- Check to indicate that the off-duty time was in a moving vehicle. Off-duty time captured in a moving vehicle is subject to the rules of the On Duty Time Definition (Passenger rule). Uncheck the box to indicate the vehicle was not moving during this off-duty time. This check box is only available for OFf Duty and (ELD) Personal Conveyance statuses.
Note: When a driver is in personal conveyance status and an inactive driver (passenger) is in off-duty status while the vehicle is moving, the inactive driver is subject to the On Duty Time Definition (or Passenger rule).
- Under Rest Break Exemption
- Check to indicate that the driver was under a rest break exemption during this segment.
Type a short explanation about why the status changed or select from the list of pre-defined remarks. Add up to two remarks for each duty status. The first 16 characters of the remark appear on the mobile display (Omnitracs only). Your ability to type free-form text in this field is controlled by settings in the Administration > HOS Setup window.
To remove a remark, delete the text from the Remarks field. To change an existing remark, edit the text.
- Edit Reason
- Type a short explanation about why you are editing this log or select from the list of pre-defined edit reasons. When a driver edits his log and types an edit reason, the reason does not appear here. Edit reasons you enter replace any reason notes previously entered by a driver or a host user. Your ability to type free-form text in this field, and whether this field is required, is controlled by settings in the Administration > HOS Setup window.
- When you save a corrected log, it is sent to the mobile unit for driver approval.
