How to switch log mode for drivers

    Audience Fleet Admin
    Applies To Fleet Dashboard > Admin > Drivers



    A fleet can have Drivers who are required to log for compliance and drivers who are not required to log for compliance purposes. The Motive Fleet Dashboard allows the Fleet Admin to assign a log mode to every driver. This log mode decides whether the driver will be required to maintain logs for ELD compliance or not.

    Note: You will not be able to change the Hours of Service Compliance setting once saved.

    • If you have drivers that need to switch modes, we recommend that you mark them as Required and put them under the Other cycle rule. This will allow them to continue using the mobile app without HOS violations.
    • If you incorrectly created a driver profile on the wrong setting, you will need to deactivate the profile with the incorrect setting and create a new profile with the correct configuration.
