The Unprocessed events tab lists unassigned driving events that have not been assigned yet, whereas the Processed events tab lists events that have been assigned to a driver or exempt from needing to be assigned to a driver. Processed events can no longer be modified.

The lists show the following information:

  • Start Date - The date and time when the unassigned event started.
  • End or Current Time - The time when the unassigned event ended. Or, if the event is still ongoing, the current date and time.
  • Engine hours - The time that the engine was running during the unassigned event.
  • Status - The HOS status of the unassigned event. This is usually Driving.
  • Vehicle - The name of the vehicle that recorded the event.
  • Miles - The miles driven during the event.
  • Location - The start and end location of the event.
  • Edit icon or Information icon - On the Unprocessed events tab, you can edit the event. On the Processed events tab, you can only view the event, not edit it.
