I currently live 1.4 miles away from office. In an effort to maximize my business miles, I often make quick trips to my office before I start my work day on the road. In using this service over the past 3 days, new user, I've noticed that the service will lump together trips that are designed to be separate. Could you provide me with instructions on how to properly start a new trip with a brief stop in the middle?

There is an option in the app settings which allows you to turn off the "Brief Stop" function. It is enabled by default and combines any trips which have a stop <15 minutes between them. If you turn this off, trips will no longer be combined and you can tag them as required.

Hi Abraham,

Thanks for sharing your question with us, and welcome to the Automatic community! Like Nathan pointed out, please disable the brief stops feature, and then each trip will be handled and displayed separately. Please let us know if you have any other questions, we're happy to help. :)
