What's New?

Hours of Service is an optional module within WorkPlan. You must have the appropriate option enabled in your account to use Hours of Service. WorkPlan and Hours of Service use separate releases and you can upgrade them independently. Some Hours of Service releases are dependent on a specific WorkPlan version.
