How to Create and Activate a NEW Driver Profile

In this article we will cover all the important things of creating a new driver in your system.
(Scroll all the way down if you would like to see a video representation of this guide)


In order to activate a driver account we will first navigate to the USERS tab in our admin backend
After which we will user the driver’s e-mail address to create a DRIVER type account.
Once you have created this Driver’s USER profile, make sure you fill out as much information as possible as well as the BIRTHDAY field in case you’re delivering any Age Restricted items like alcohol, medicine, etc… (This field is needed so our AutoDispatch software can flag these orders for further review)
Once we have done that we will get pulled into that driver’s user profile and then
we will navigate back to the admin backend panel to access the DRIVERS tab.


Once we are in this section we will navigate to the
MANAGE tab in order to fill out some important information for our new driver.
