New Admin Features
Below is a preview of new features and improvements that will be coming soon. Please check this page regularly for additional updates.
Location Button Added to HOS Logs
As a time saver, users can now click the location button on the HOS logs to view the Trips History where the log was created. Previously, users needed to go to the Maps page and look up the vehicle’s history separately.
View Shipment Information Added During Login
When a driver adds shipment information during the login process, this will now create a log entry with SA (for Shipment Attached):
New HOS Rulesets
The following new HOS rulesets have been added:
- California School Pupil
- California Farm Product
- California Flammable Liquid
Canadian HOS Ruleset Updates
- 24 hours of consecutive off-duty need after every 14 days (Cycle 1 and Cycle 2):
For Cycle 1 and Cycle 2, no driver shall drive unless the driver has taken at least 24 consecutive hours of off-duty time in the preceding 14 days. Violation is:
Driving without 24-hour consecutive off-duty in the preceding 14 days.
- 24 hours of consecutive off-duty needed after every 70 hours (Cycle 2):
For Cycle 2, drivers should have a maximum of 70 hours cumulative on-duty hours since their last 24 hours off duty. Violation is:
Maximum 70 hours on-duty since 24-hour consecutive off.
- A countdown feature has been added to the app for drivers approaching their 24 hours off duty requirement.
- When the Adverse Driving Conditions exemption is enabled for vehicles south of latitude 60°N (along the southern border of Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut in Canada), the following changes are made to the daily requirements and HOS availability:
- Daily rest requirement decreases by two hours
- Daily off requirement decreases by two hours
- Daily driving available increases by two hours
- Daily duty available increases by two hours
- Workday driving available increases by two hours
HOS Data Transfer – Audit Log Entry
When transferring HOS logs to the FMCSA, an ELD Data Transfer audit log entry is created in Administration > System… > Audit Logs.
HOS Log Entry Updates
For better readability, HOS log entries have been updated to show an abbreviation instead of an exclamation mark. Examples are:
- Engine Power Up – EPU
- Engine Power Shutdown – ESD
- Ruleset Change: RSC
- Adverse Weather – AW
- Situational Driving Clear – SDC
HOS Availability Report
To make it easier for users to manage drivers, a new option has been added to the HOS Availability page. The display option Show only drivers in violation will show drivers in active violation of their current HOS requirements. A limit of 500 users is displayed when searching by group.
HOS Availability Report – Auto-Update Button
The HOS Availability page will have a new auto-update button. The button will be disabled by default, but when pressed it starts refreshing every 1 minute. This can serve as a central page for monitoring the availability in near real-time.
Ignore HOS Duty Status Logs
Authorized users can now choose to ignore Duty Status Logs. Ignored logs will still be displayed on inspection reports, and will still be transferred to the FMCSA, however, they will not affect HOS availability, or violation calculations.
This is helpful in cases where a driver has made a selection in error, and wishes to make a correction, but where the log cannot be edited due to the ELD mandate restrictions.
DVIR Defect List – New Defect Type: Unregulated
A new DVIR defect type “Unregulated” has been added to the defect types. An unregulated defect is not associated with federal compliance requirements, and does not pose a safety risk to the driver, such as paint or decal damage. This is available when customizing the default DVIR defects list.
DVIR Defect Lists Available to Individual Groups
Defect lists can now be assigned to a group, making it available to all members of that group, allowing for the creation of Group specific defect lists.
New DVIR Security Clearance Entries
The following new Security Clearances have been added to ensure only designated users can perform and certify DVIR inspections:
- Mark DVIR logs as certified
- Perform DVIR inspections
DVIR Report Sorting
The DVIR Report is now sorted by devices, trailer, and date/time to match how they are displayed in the app.
Below is an overview of features and improvements from previous releases.
Rulesets with 30 Minute Rest Exemption Available
Fleets can now select rulesets that do not have the 30 minute rest requirement.
Each ruleset also has the option to enable the 24-hour restart and/or the oil well wait time.

The ‘Repaired’ and ‘Not Necessary’ buttons have been separated on the DVIR in the Transflo Telematics portal.
DVIR Rules (Beta)
More support for rules based on DVIR defects have been added. This is still in beta, and users must have the feature preview turned on.
HOS Transfer Logs Improvements
The help text on the transfer logs page has been improved, and an additional prompt has been added to distinguish between a test transfer and a real transfer to the FMCSA
Availability – Recap in portal
HOS Availability now displays the driver’s hour recap, future hours available, as well as hours gained at midnight.
The Canadian HOS rulesets have been expanded in the 1804 release, which includes features such as:
o A rest period that exceeds 30 minutes will count towards 2 hours of Off Duty time for Canadian HOS rulesets
o The Canadian Off Duty Deferral exemption has been added
o Canadian violations are now displayed in the HOS logs header
o Canadian HOS rulesets are based on the previous 24 hour period
o An option has been added to set driver start time for Canadian HOS ruleset
Audit Logs for Trailers and Shipments
Audit logs are now available for trailer and shipment log updates (add / edit / remove).
When switching vehicles, login/logout system records will be annotated to reflect this change.
Users Page Showing More Info
The Users page now displays the first and last name, last access date, and security clearance for each user.
o Compliance Print is now referred to as Print
o The distance traveled since last valid coordinates were recorded have been added to the Duty Status and Power Up/Shutdown logs.
o Changed “Personal Use” to “Personal Conveyance”

HOS Duty Status Logs page now includes modifications
A new “Show modifications” option has been added to the Duty Status Logs options.
When set to ‘Yes’, all edits made to the logs will be shown on screen, without the need to go into the Log Edit page to see the modification details.
Default driver is now displayed on the Vehicle Edit page
The driver that most commonly logs into a vehicle, will now be shown on the Vehicle Edit page:
Visual improvements to carrier edits
In the new release, it will be easier to see HOS log edits in the portal. When viewing a driver’s logs, the header for the day will now also be shown in yellow if that day contains log edits that are pending acceptance by the driver.
7-day/8-day limit for ‘No ruleset’
The ‘No ruleset’ option now comes with a 7-day/8-day limit. This is due to the need to be able to transfer logs to the FMCSA, for which a cycle duration is required.
HOS Availability report adjusted
The HOS Availability report has been adjusted to only show drivers that have HOS logs; driver users that have never logged in and have never generated HOS logs will not be shown, in order to not clutter the screen.
