Driver information and access settings are available from the Driver page. You must add drivers into Depot to fully utilize driver-centric reports or use ELD. Only staff with Unit Manager or Client Administrator roles can add or manage driver profiles or recommend log edits.
You can access the Driver page in Depot from two locations:
1. Click the Driver menu in the red Depot menu bar.
2. Click the Settings icon, then click Administration, and select the Driver sub menu.

The left side of the Driver page lists your drivers. Hover your mouse over a driver name and left-click to open that driver profile on the right panel.

If you can’t see your drivers, a Depot Client Administrator in your organization can give you access.
You can add an individual driver by clicking the Add Driver button, entering in the details, and clicking Add. See Driver Profile for details.
