To assist drivers who are having issues signing out, or to force a driver to exit their session, you can trigger a sign-out action for a particular driver from the Samsara Dashboard.
This can be useful in the following situations:
- A driver is still assigned to a vehicle even though their shift has ended, putting them at risk for HOS violations if that vehicle is moved
- A driver requires an update to the Samsara Driver App, which is triggered by signing out and signing back in
- You want to prevent unauthorized access to the Driver App (e.g. if a device is stolen)
Triggering a Sign-Out
You can take this action from two locations in the Dashboard. The option is only visible if the driver is currently signed in to the Driver App.

Identifying Drivers Who Forgot to Sign out
To assist in identifying drivers who are potentially at risk for running into HOS violations because they forgot to sign out of the app, and still have a vehicle assignment at the end of their shift, we have added new capabilities to the HOS Report page
This column identifies the current vehicle assignment. It is also possible to sort on this column.

An Admin can filter for users who have (or don’t have) a vehicle assignment
