Using the driving journal with the Volvo On Call * app

The Volvo On Call app can automatically create a drive log which allows you to view a summary of your car journeys. This article describes how to manage the driving journal. E.g. how to group journeys, disable the driving journal or export a journey.

Activate or deactivate driving journal

The drive log can be enabled/disabled from your Volvo On Call app, see instructions below.

Instructions

Log in to your Volvo On Call app and select the More tab.

Select App settings.

Select settings for Driving journal.

Enable/disable your driving journal.

When your driving journal is enabled, all users linked to your account can see the journeys made with your Volvo. Journeys made over the last 100 days are saved. If the driving journal is disabled, your Volvo stops sending information on new journeys. None of the phones connected to your account will be able to see new entries in the journal log.

Note that existing journeys are not deleted if the driving journal is disabled.

Export driving journal

It is possible to transfer the data from the driving journal to other formats. This function can be used to create business expense reports, for example. Information is stored on the journeys you have made with your Volvo over the last 100 days. We recommend that you export your driving journal to your email address so that you do not lose information on any journeys more than 100 days old.

Instructions

Log in to your Volvo On Call app and select the Car tab.

Select Driving journal.

Highlight the journey(s) you want to export.

Press the e-mail symbol.

You now have the option of sending the journal log as an Excel file, CSV file or text file. The file can be opened on the computer using software such as Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, Google Docs or OpenOffice.org Calc.

Categorise journeys

In the view with driving journal it is possible to categorise your journeys in accordance with Work, Private or Uncategorised. Trips can be filtered according to categories, and you can also choose which trips are to be displayed depending on the time range.
