Driver profiles so you can see all drives by driver instead of just by vehicle. That way when two different people drive the same vehicles, you can see separate driver profiles. Also, a per drive score would be nice to see.

Hey Charles!

Good news, the way you described the per driver interaction is exactly how it works right now.  In your app timeline, you only see drives where your phone connected (and presumably you were driving).  

Per drive score is something we've thought a lot about and will likely reveal in the future.  No date set yet, but shouldn't be too long.  Meanwhile if you are a developer, you'll be able to access per-drive scores through the API very soon. :)

Cheers,
Adam

My phone is the only phone ever connected w/the app...so are you saying that the other person driving would also have to download the app?

What if we are both in the car at the same time, which phone would the Automatic attach to?

I would like a way, on just one phone, to be able to track the different drivers. Right now we have to try and remember who drove...this hard breaks/hard accels and over 70 mph is a big bone of contention when it comes to scores!! :-)

Hi Kat,

Thanks for reaching out!

In order for the Automatic adapter to transfer the data to Automatic, a phone must be paired with the adapter. If you share the car with someone else, they should have the Automatic application installed as well if they'd want to track their data as well. At this time, we recommend that each user has their own account—however, please note that this will not allow you to share your trip data as that is only visible to the account that took the trips.

Each driver having their own account, however, would provide each with their own score and list of the trips they took. If both drivers are in the car at the same time with separate accounts, the adapter will pair with the last phone that it was connected to (which may not be the current driver). You are unable to reassign trips, but it is something we are working on addressing.

I hope this helps :)

I'm looking more for being able to tag a trip with who drove and then having that tied to one account as a start.  Tying it to multiple accounts and sharing data would be a good next step.

In the dashboard, a filter by tag would make it easy to see who did what. Oftentimes we're in the car together and so we are fine using 1 phone with the app on it.  It's just distinguishing the trips (by tag) and then filtering as such would be great!

Thanks!

Thanks for that feedback, Kat!

We are definitely working on how to better approach multicar/driver homes! While we don't have anything new to share today, please stay tuned as we continue to develop and build the product.

Thanks again!

Thanks! Looking forward to it! :-) I love all of the data options on the dashboard and labs as well!
