|Applies To||Fleet Dashboard > Dispatch|
With the Motive Dispatch feature Fleet Managers can create, manage and track Dispatch progress from the Fleet Dashboard. It allows dispatchers to draft a Dispatch and choose when to send it to the Driver in the future. The draft status means the Driver has not seen the Dispatch yet and it's only visible to the Fleet Manager.
