    • Due to compliance concerns, it is not possible for Motive Employees to make any changes to logs from their whether it be through the Driver App or the Fleet Admin Dashboard.
    • Motive Representatives will however be more than happy to guide any concerned customer with step-by-step guidance on how to Edit Logs properly.

    For Fleet Admin:

    • Fleet Admins can make changes to a Driver's Logs through the Fleet Admin Dashboard by following the instructions mentioned in our article attached below:

    • Another common query Fleet Admins have trouble getting addressed is ignoring or reverting Accidentally Recorded Driving Time. If the Driving Event was recorded by the Vehicle Gateway while a Driver was connected to the Truck the Driving Event can not be reverted but it can be annotated and changed over to Personal Conveyance using our Ignore Drive Time feature

    For Drivers:

    • For instances where Driving Time was recorded Accidentally as On-Duty Driving when it should have been Off-Duty Personal Conveyance, the Driving Events can not be edited from the Driver's or Motive's End. The Driver however can reach out to their Fleet Admin/Dispatcher for the Ignore Drive Time feature and have it changed back to Personal Conveyance.
