A large portion of Unassigned Driving segments occur during yard moves. Because of this, admins have the ability to designate a Geofence as a Yard. When a Geo-fence is designated as a Yard any unassigned driving within this Geofence will be automatically annotated as a Yard Move. This feature will save compliance managers time by not having to assign every small move a vehicle makes during yard moves.
How to use Auto-Annotation for Yard Moves:
Navigate to Settings > Addresses/Geofences > check the box beside "Address is a yard".
Now, you will see any unassigned driving time within this geofence populated into the annotated tab of Unassigned HOS as Yard Move.
Things to Note:
- In order for this feature to correctly function, make sure that the geofence is only marked as a yard for a location where carriers know non-drivers (mechanics, washers, fuelers, etc.) will be operating vehicles.
- Also, this should only be used for segments performed by non-driver operators.
- Normal unassigned segments should still be assigned to the appropriate individual drivers.
- This feature will not automatically assign segments that were at one point associated with a driver (carrier edit that unassigns drive time)
