Fleet administrators that use a tachograph in their vehicle can view a Historical Driver's Hours Report on their Samsara Dashboard. The Historical Driver's Hours Report shows a historical overview on time drivers spent in a main tacho status. These statuses include driving, working, available and resting, and will calculate violations.
To access the Historical Driver's Hours Report, on your Samsara dashboard, go to Reports > Driver's Hours and select the Historical tab.
The historical data on a driver's hours are based on tacho downloads and it is recommended that past dates are selected when viewing this report.
To make sure the appropriate time range is reported, you can adjust the selected dates in the upper right-hand corner of the Samsara Dashboard. If there were no tacho downloads made during a specific time frame, some driver data might not necessarily be available.
To adjust the date range, please refer to this article: Using the Calendar to Filter Information on the Dashboard
When viewing past dates, the following data is available in the Historical Driver's Hours Report:
- Driver Name
- Time in main tacho statuses: Driving, Working, Resting, Availability, and Time in Violation
- Availability reflects the driver's state when they are multi-manning or when the tacho is in ferry mode. As it is a relatively rare state, you will often see 0's for the availability sum
- Time in Violation is based on the Social Infringement Report.
The report can also filter individual drivers or groups of drivers in tags.
Detailed Tachograph Report
Part of the historical driver's hours is the Detailed Tachograph Report. By clicking on an individual driver in the Historical Driver's Hours Report, you will be navigated to a Detailed Tachograph Report.
To view the analysis chart in the Detailed Tachograph Report, select a date and it will expand with the chart. The Tacho Analysis Chart will be displayed in UTC. Alongside the UTC time, there will be a column that displays the selected date in the local setting time.
You can also navigate to this page from Reports > Remote Tachograph and selecting the driver and date.
