Assigning a Driver to an Event

All hours of service status changes, particularly those that involve going from or to the Driving status, must be assigned to a driver, so that mileage can be accounted for.

Unidentified status change events display "No Driver" in the Driver column.

To assign events to a driver:
 

1.Go to the Events tab of the Hours of Service screen.
2.From the Show drop-down list select "Attention Needed" to filter the events that have no driver assigned.
3.If you are unsure which driver is responsible for the event that you want to assign a driver to, click the time or vehicle link for the event. Identify the driver who is assigned to events immediately before or after the event. The driver is likely to be the same. Click Back.
4.Select the check box next to the events that you want to assign the same driver to.
5.Click Assign (x events selected).
6.From the drop-down box that opens select "Assign to Driver".
 

 
7.Select a driver from the drop-down list.
 

 
8.Click Assign Driver.
9.The event list now displays two versions of the event:
 
One version is the original unidentified status change event. It has a status of "Inactive". Its properties are grayed out in the events list.
The other version has the assigned driver. It has a status of "Pending", which is appended after the event's name in the event list. This event also displays on the Unidentified Driving screen in the Hours of Service app for the specified driver, so that the driver can accept or reject the event.
 
8.If the driver accepts the event, the versions of the event change as follows:
 
The original version remains "Inactive".
The version that was marked as "Pending" becomes "Active".
 

If the driver rejects the changes to the event, the versions of the event change as follows:
 

The original version remains "Inactive".
A new version is created, which is a copy of the original version and has a status of "Active".
The version that was marked as "Pending" becomes "Rejected". Its event name shows in red and its properties are grayed out in the events list.
