Manual Mode allows you to use the Business Button to set trips to business or personal on the fly while you are driving. But how do you turn this on or off?
Manual Mode is a setting in your account
Please don’t confuse Manual Mode with a button on your device. It’s a setting that you can turn on or off in your account, which tells our trip processing system whether to use automatic business trip detection when processing your trips.
You can turn Manual mode on within your account in two different places.
During Initial Setup
When you initially link a mileage tracker to your account, you’ll get asked whether you want your device to be Automatic or Manual.
If you have not setup or linked the tracker to your account yet, this is a critical step that you need to perform anyway. Please follow the instructions in your setup manual to link the mileage tracker to your account.
In your Account Settings page
Your Account Settings page is found by clicking your email address at the top right of the screen when you are logged in. A menu will drop down, and you can select ‘Account Settings’.
On the Account Settings page, scroll down to the section that reads Automatic Business Trip Detection.
To turn Manual Mode on, UNCHECK the box and click save. This will turn Automatic Trip Detection off (which means Manual Mode is On).
To turn Manual Mode off (Automatic Trip Detection On), CHECK the box and click save.
