Viewing and Navigating the Trips List View
This is how the trips list view should look once you start to record some trips during the week:
We show a visual hint to help you navigate faster. A circle will be displayed underneath the date for the days where trips were recorded.
Coloured circle - A day with Business trips, indicating the total number of brightmiles earned and a visual representation of the percentage achieved against what you could have earned.
Dashed grey circle - A day with only personal trips
No circle - A day with no trips
You can always navigate back to view the current day and the list of trips done today by tapping at the quick link at the top of the screen underneath the month.
Details of the Trip Summary Card
- The starting point and start time of your Trip
- The end point and end time of your Trip
- Whether you were the Driving or not for the relevant Trip
Optionally you are also able to add in the type of vehicle used for the trip. This helps not only with your own records but also importantly assists Brightmile in training its auto classifier intelligence for the future
- Whether the relevant Trip was a Business or Personal Trip
Note that it may take up to 30 mins for your overall driver scores and Brightmile totals to update after you re-classify a trip. Mileage reports will however reflect all recently re-classified trips.
How many Brightmiles you were awarded for the Trip
Whether there was a Poor GPS during the recording of the Trip
Poor GPS trips may have inaccurate mileage. If you use Brightmile for mileage records then use the "Edit Trip" feature from the trip detail to correct mileage if necessary.
If this happens repeatedly please (i) check that you have optimised the GPS settings for your smartphone, and (ii) avoid leaving your phone under large objects that would obstruct GPS signals (e.g. laptops).
Option to Add a Trip Purpose
Detail on Individual Trips
Note that we do not tell you where individual incidents occur (e.g. exactly where you were Speeding or where a particular Distraction Event occurred). This is because at Brightmile we do not dwell on individual incidents, nor are individual incidents reported to your employer.
Rather we focus and report on trends which we observe over time to identify patterns (e.g. whether you are a habitual speeder or user of your smartphone whilst driving) and are not susceptible to individual incidents.
Adding a Trip Manually
Why do my trips sometimes split?
Brightmile automatically stops trips based on triggers such as leaving the vehicle and walking or to account for drivers taking a rest in the car but not leaving it, when there is no movement for 5 mins.
In heavy traffic it is not possible for us to identify the difference between being sat in the vehicle stopped or being stuck in traffic for 5 minutes.
Split trips will not affect your overall driver behaviour scoring.
