Managing driving journals with the Volvo On Call app

The Volvo On Call app can automatically create a driving journal that allows you to view a summary of your trips. You can categorize and name trips, export the driving journal, and more.

Activating or deactivating the driving journal

Go to the More tab.
Select App settings.
Choose settings for Driving journal.
Select to turn your Driving journal on/off.

When the driving journal is activated, all users that are connected to your account can see the trips made with your vehicle. Journeys made over the last 100 days are saved. If the driving journal is deactivated, the vehicle stops sending information about 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 corporate car expense reports, for example. Information is stored about the trips made with the vehicle over the last 100 days. To avoid losing information about trips older than 100 days, it is advisable to export the driving journal to your email.

Go to the Vehicle tab.
Select Driving journal.
Mark the journey(s) you want to export.
Press the e-mail symbol.
You have the option of sending the journal log as an Excel, CSV or text file. The file can be opened on the computer with programs such as Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, Google Docs or Calc.

Categorize trips

In the driving journal view it is possible to categorize trips according to Business, Private or Unassigned. The trips can be filtered according to categories and you also have the possibility to choose the displayed range according to time interval.

Remove trip from Driving journal

Go to the Vehicle tab.
Select Driving journal.
Mark the journey(s) you want to delete.
Select the trash can symbol at the top of the screen and press Delete.

If several accounts are connected to the vehicle, everybody sees the same view from the Volvo On Call data server. This means that if you remove a trip, change name or group trips in one cell phone, this is implemented for all users that the information is displayed for.

Name trips

You can name your trips and also add notes.

Go to the Vehicle tab.
Select Driving journal.
Select the trip you want to edit.
Press Title and name the trip.
Press Note if you want to add information (e.g. how much you had to pay when you filled up).
