Geotab Drive & Cloud ELD: The Switch to Server Side Logic


Important new updates for Geotab Drive affecting the logic behind generating driver logs and login workflow. Please read below to make yourself aware of these important changes.

Cloud ELD

Geotab has revamped the way we generate Duty Status logs with our Cloud ELD. The Geotab GO device records engine and GPS data recorded and sends it to MyGeotab over-the-air. MyGeotab will then process the information and push down required engine data, location, and Duty Status logs to the Geotab Drive app. Learn more about through the Cloud ELD Defined Document.

Driver Set Up Required

In order to have automatic duty-status changes to work, the user must be set as a driver. This can be done by selecting the user in question, then click on the Driver tab. Next to This user is a driver: select Yes as seen below.  

Follow the steps outlined in the Geotab Drive App Manual to learn how to enable a user to become a Drive app user. Also, watch our video on How to Mass Edit Users to learn how to edit existing users to be set as Drive app users.
