Select Drivers / Vehicles

In this step, you specify the drivers and/or vehicles that the email alert is sent about.

Available selections depend on the event types configured on the Select Event Types tab. If options are greyed out, go back and select the event type, then specify the drivers/vehicles.

  • When you send email alerts about Driving or Working Violations and/or Personal Conveyance events, you must specify which drivers you want to send alerts about.
  • When you send email alerts when Unassigned Driving events begin or end, you must define which vehicles to send the alert about.

Select Drivers

Applies to Driving or Working Violations and Personal Conveyance event types.

Select drivers by depot
This option lists all depots created in HOS. Check the boxes next to the depot(s) to include in this email alert. You can find a depot by typing all or part of the name, and you can view just the depots you checked or deselect all depots.
Selecting a depot means that email alerts are sent for any driver in the depot who generates a driving violation and/or personal conveyance event.
Select drivers by group
This option lists all HOS driver groups. HOS groups can be used to group drivers that you want to monitor for the same events when they are in different depots. For example, you may want to monitor new drivers more closely for a period of time. If the group is not listed, create the group in HOS and then come back here to select it. This option works the same way that selecting drivers by depot works. You can select one or more groups to send email alerts when any driver in the group generates a driving violation and/or personal conveyance event.
All drivers
This option sends email alerts when any active driver in your company generates a driving violation and/or personal conveyance event.
