Depot Release 6.7: July 2016

This release has some great new features:


Introducing Driver tab

The Driver tab has all the information you need to manage your drivers. The Driver tab simplifies administration by helping you keep an eye on licences and expiry dates, and giving you quick access to driver reports.

Note, this update replaces the previous version of Driver, which was accessed through the Settings menu. To open the new tab, click on ‘DRIVER’ in the red navigation bar.

Electronic Logbook – Driver Timesheets improvements

Driver Timesheets calculate work, drive and rest hours as logged by your drivers in EROAD Electronic Logbook. To allow for increased flexibility, we have fine-tuned the date picker so that you can view hours for a customised date range and see driver journeys that continue across the end of a week or month.

Over Speed reporting – Submit speed review requests from Over Speed Dashboard

We have replaced the old Over Speed Report with an Over Speed Dashboard that offers more insights into driving behaviour and lets you track trends over time. We hope you’ve found switching to the new Over Speed Dashboard easy. You can still tell us if Depot shows inaccurate speed limits, but from now on you do it in the Over Speed Dashboard. If you’ve previously scheduled over speed reports, you’ll still receive them in your email inbox.
