Q: How to exchange drivers between vehicles?
A: It is mandatory to assign a vehicle to any driver; however, it is not mandatory for the dispatcher to have the same driver driving the same vehicle every day. Thus, it is necessary to exchange drivers between vehicles through the planning screen prior or after assigning the daily jobs.
To exchange drivers between vehicles:
- Click on the vehicle name to open the vehicle settings. A separate pop-up window will appear.
- At Driver drop-down list, select a driver you want to allocate to the vehicle for the required date.
- In case a selected driver is assigned to any other vehicle, a confirmation window will popup asking to Swap drivers or Unallocate driver from that vehicle or Cancel, Select the appropriate action.
- Click Save if you want to apply these changes on the current planning date only. Click Save and update default if you want to save these changes to be applied for the future plans as well.
