Accept or reject unidentified miles

This article describes how to accept and reject unidentified miles as a driver in the Logbook app.

Note

In Logbook, you cannot manually add driving time to your log. Any driving time that is not assigned to you, as a driver, is captured as unidentified miles. Your administrator can assign unidentified miles to you, and you can accept or reject unidentified miles under Miles assigned to you or Unidentified Miles for this Vehicle.

Unidentified miles are driving periods that do not have an assigned driver. You can receive two types of alerts for unidentified miles:

  • Unidentified miles for this vehicle: This alert is shown when Logbook detects driving time for your vehicle at a time when no driver was assigned to the vehicle.

  • Miles assigned to you: This alert is shown when your administrator assigns driving time to you because you were likely to be the driver.

These alerts can be raised when you, or another driver using the vehicle, were not logged in to Logbook or had no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection while driving the vehicle.

The alert with the title "Unidentified miles for this vehicle" is raised immediately after a vehicle records unidentified miles. This alert is shown when you connect to the vehicle. Any driving time that is less than 5 minutes in duration or less than 0.1 mile in distance is ignored and not raised as unidentified miles.

If you drove the vehicle during the time period stated in an alert, you can accept the miles to your log. If you did not drive the vehicle during the time period stated, you can reject the miles.

You can accept or reject individual or multiple unidentified miles. If you accept a change, the change is made to your log. You must then recertify the log.

To refresh the list of unidentified miles on the Alerts screen, swipe down on the screen.

Accept or reject an individual unidentified mile alert

To accept or reject an unidentified mile alert:

  1. Tap the Alerts img-en-us-lb_alert_icon32.png icon in the upper part of the screen to view a list of your alerts.

  2. On the Unidentified Miles tab, review all unidentified mile alerts in the list. If the unidentified miles belong to you, tap Accept. If another driver is responsible for the unidentified miles, tap Reject.

  3. If you accept the unidentified miles, the alert is removed from the list and you must recertify your log on the Uncertified Logs tab.

    If an error occurs, an error button is displayed. When you tap this, the reject or accept that you initiated earlier is retried. If it succeeds this time, the row is removed.
