    Peoplenet eLogs

    Does anyone know where you can find what hours you will be picking up tomorrow on Peoplenets eLog? I'm having difficulty finding it.

    Not sure how PeopleNet does it, but Qualcomm has a summary page that shows last 8 days. Since you need that anyway for DOT purposes, that should be available somewhere in your system.

    But then, I could be wrong. Not the first time.

    that's what I'm asking my guys to do for now. I was hoping that there was an easier way for trip planning purposes. We have a line that shows the hours you picked up at midnight, I find that useless it would be more helpful to know what you'll get tomorrow, or at least it would be to me.

    I have people net also, and have checked every screen. It does not exist. No recap page at all. Have to actually go back thru the logs. Pain in the rear. I have high hopes my company goes to the better version of people net sooner than later. On that version you can even see the line graph like on a paper log.
    I have no idea how they expect the DOT to look at these #### things.

    To check your hours and see what's available tomorrow, do this: From the "Menu" screen, Push the center button under "Menu". The cursor(arrow) is at the top, next to "Driver Log". Push the button under "Select". Scroll down twice to "Review Log Sheets". Push "Select" again, scroll down seven lines, (then one more to make sure it's bottomed out on the last entry). Push "Select". The cursor is next to "Sheet:". To see how many hours you worked that day, (8 days ago), push "Select" again and scroll down 13 times. The last line says "On + D". These are the hours you worked 8 days ago and will pick back up at midnight. Hope it helps, go make some money and have fun doing it!

    Tried that. Mine does not show total hours worked that day on the log sheet page.
    It will show hours available on the view hours page. And I can see how many hours I will get back at midnight. But that is it.
    Cannot find anywhere where it just shows hours onduty, drive, etc for each day. That is what they really want to see.

    I get the idea that the system comes with endless options and the MC gets to pick and choose what options they want for customization. The only other option I can think of to check the past eight days is to send your own logs to your E-mail and open them there. Takes a little time, though. Every user should have that option, the D.O.T. can demand the last 7 days logs. That's how PeopleNet does it, they get sent to the department's E-mail.

    Here's to hoping they can make things better. I'm going to give a little push to the safety director at my company and see what we can change. I think I can get more willing eLog participants if the functionality is more driver friendly.

    Well good news, I got a line 5 on the eLogs now. It was easier than I thought, but harder than it should have been.

    So on these eLogs, what is the purpose of allowing a driver to SKIP the Auto Duty Status change?
