Driver Management Checklists

There are different driver checklist items that can be created per Job Class.  The "driver management" categories (ie. Driver Qualification, Alcohol & Drug, etc.) can contain a Prequalification checklist (items that are needed at time of hire) and Maintenance Checklist (items that need to be renewed over time). Additionally, the Training tab has it's own list of renewable items.

 

These checklists are setup by system administrators via Settings.

Prequalification Checklists

About Prequalification Checklists

The Pre-Qualification checklist can contain items that need to be obtained on or before time of hire.  This checklist is completely customizable.  Encompass has an existing list of common checklist items.  Before an employee's checklist can be completed, the checklist needs to be created and assigned to their job class.

 

After clicking on Prequalification Checklists in Settings, the user will be taken to the Company Prequalification Checklist Items screen. 

 

Notice the drop-down menu above the checklist for Select Job Class.  Any changes made on this page without that drop-down being changed, will result in the checklist being updated for only employees that have Not Specified as their job class (Noteif job class is not tracked and all employees are of the same job class and require the same checklist, this is not an issue. Just be aware that the checklist is based around the employee's job class).

If job classes are being utilized, change this drop-down menu to the Job Class you wish to create/edit the prequalification checklist for.

Adding New Prequalification Checklist Items

When adding a new checklist item, enter the information about the the checklist item, along with the File Type (meaning, which tab in Encompass should this fall under).  The Default Status is what the status of the checklist item should be when the employee is initially created. If it's part of standard new hire paperwork and is already completed by the time it is entered in Encompass, Completed could be set as default, requiring less work in having to come in and update the item in in the employee's checklist. 

Then, specify the job class this checklist item this should apply to.  Click Save to save the entry.

Note: Adding a new checklist item does NOT automatically enable it in the checklist.  Once back on the company checklist items page, the checklist item will need to be selected and the checklist for the job class saved to apply.
