A driving team of two or more can manage their hours of service from one device using the “Driving Team” feature of the Driver App.
Important: All drivers must be signed into one device. While team driving, do not sign into the app on any other phones or tablets.
If you are new to the Samsara Driver App, take a moment to review the basics in our User Manual before you begin Team Driving. You can also find some step-by-step video guides here. (Para videos en español, hacer click acá: Videos en español.)
Important: The images and instructions below are from the latest version of the app and may not match the visuals in the previous videos or user manuals. The majority of instructions are the same, with a few changes in terminology.
