Team Driving - Shared Device-Android
Encompass® ELD allows team drivers to use the same smart device to track their hours of service. If Login - Team Driver is not an option at login, contact the company Encompass Administrator.
Enter Username and Password. Select Login - Team Driver.
The user will be presented with the Perform ELD Discovery screen if the checkbox on the login screen was selected. The second user won't see this screen unless the first user does not connect to the ELD. Connect to the ELD. For further assistance connecting, please see Connecting to the ELD (Android™) or Connecting to the ELD (iPhone®/iPad®).
The user that logs in first will be presented with two options - Shared Device and Separate Device; select Shared Device.
Select the appropriate status and press Submit Status.
Each user will fill in their own Trip Information, however, the information user 1 enters here will be automatically filled in for user 2. User 2 will only need to amend the information if their trip information varies. If logs are missing, an alert will display. Tap OK when complete.
At this point, the user can decide to have Driver #2 Login OR go directly to the Encompass® ELD home screen. The second user will have the ability to log themselves into Encompass® ELD via Menu once at the Encompass® ELD Dashboard. If the second user wants to login at this point, select Driver #2 Login.
The second user should press OK to the safety warning, and then login with their username and password. Press OK.
The second user will then go through the same logon process that the first user did, by selecting their duty status and entering their trip information. Any information entered by user 1 will carry over to user 2, however, this information can be edited if necessary.
If both users choose On Duty for their status, the Select Team Driver screen will appear to allow users to select who will drive first. Select the name of the user who will drive first.
The home screen will appear. Notice the new team driving icon in the green bar, as well as the steering wheel icon to show which user is marked as the driver. This means that any driving that occurs will be applied to that users log.
When it is time to switch who is driving, one of the drivers must tap the name displayed in the green bar of the dashboard. The Switch Encompass® ELD User screen will be displayed. Select the driver from the drop down menu for Select User. Once selected, if the next driving segment should be on their log, select Assume Driving Responsibilities. Press OK.
The other driver's name will now display in the green navigation bar with the steering wheel icon next to their name, indicating that they are marked as the driver and any drive time recorded will be placed on their log.
