Configuring ELD Settings

If you are using WorkPlan as an ELD (electronic logging device) to help with ELD compliance, make sure that the vehicles have the appropriate hardware unit installed. In addition, you must configure the following:

WorkPlan Users

If you have the Mobile Tools screen, you can create and configure WorkPlan users and associated drivers all in one place. If you do not have access to the Mobile Tools screen, follow this procedure:

 

1.Create a new driver using the Driver Details dialog box.
2.Create a new subuser using the User dialog box, which can be accessed from the hierarchy or from the Subusers screen. When adding a subuser, you must link the driver to the subuser.
3.Configure the mobile user's account, defining which applications and features the user has access to.

All ELD drivers must have the following attributes defined:
 

First name and last name - These must be added on the Details page of the Driver Details dialog box or on the User Details tab of the Mobile Tools screen.
Driver's license number and state - These can be added on the License & Insurance page of the Driver Details dialog box (accessible from the Drivers screen) or on the User Details tab of the Mobile Tools screen.

See Adding Required Driver Details for more information.

ELD Settings

You must define a carrier name and a carrier number. The carrier name is the company name used to register with your local regulatory authority, for example with the FMCSA in the US. The carrier number is the unique number or identifier you received from your local regulatory authority when your company was registered.

 

Use the ELD tab of the Settings dialog box to define a single Carrier Name and Carrier Number for your company, or the default Carrier Name and Carrier Number, if you have more than one.
Use the Details tab on the Hierarchy screen to define a different Carrier Name and Carrier Number for each hierarchy node. This can be used, for example, for subsidiary companies.

You must configure the following WorkPlan settings, under Settings > Mobile Defaults (for your entire company), or under Tasks > Mobile Tools > User Details (per WorkPlan user, if you are using the Mobile Tools screen); or under Main > Drivers > Verizon Connect Mobile (per WorkPlan user, if you are not using the Mobile Tools screen):
