How to set work hours

Here's how to set work hours to automatically classify your drives outside your work schedule as personal. In the mobile app, tap on (Menu) > Account Settings > Work Hours, and toggle the slider to the right to turn the feature on. Then set your work hours for the week (Monday through Friday) or tap "Add Shifts" to set a more complex schedule.

Automate your drive classification with MileIQ's Work Hours feature, now with Work Shifts for more complex schedules. Simply set the business hours that you normally keep, and only drives within those hours will be available in the app. All other drives will be automatically classified as personal leaving your other drives available for more in-depth classification.

You can always see all of your drives from the web dashboard and re-classify them if necessary.

Additional Information

Remember, only drives detected by MileIQ within the hours set here will be available in the app. All other drives will be automatically classified as personal.

The first time a drive is automatically classified, a dialog with information about the auto-classification will be populated. After tapping on the "x", you will have the option to show the notification again in the future. Choosing 'Yes' will show the notification again, and choosing 'No' will no longer show the notification.
