How to: Set Work Hours

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.
