The digital logbook gives locomotive drivers an overview of everything that concerns the locomotive.

From the homepage, click "Digital Logbook", then select the asset you wish to see from the drop-down menu.

Once you've selected an asset, the logbook opens and displays the following information:

  • The asset name

  • The current operational status

  • The hotline number to call for this asset

  • The buttons to create a corrective event or a manual counter reading

  • The list of open restrictions of the locomotive, if any (with an auto-translate feature for multi-lingual companies).

  • The current GPS position of the locomotive and some key telematic information, as well as links to the data inspector, GPS history, telematic history, and driving directions to the locomotive location via Google maps.

  • Open corrective events as well as the last closed corrective events

The user permissions dictate what is shown on the page. To have a working driver logbook, a role should at least have the permissions to:

  • View operational status

  • View restrictions

  • View corrective events

Hotline number configuration

Only an administrator can add the hotline number to an asset. If you don't have the necessary permissions, please contact an administrator at your company.

As an administrator, go to the "Assets" menu in the administration panel, search for the asset, and click on its ID to go to the asset page.

Add the hotline number and save your modification. The number will then appear on the top right of the digital logbook.

Adding documents to the driver logbook

Only an administrator can add documents to the digital logbook. If you don't have the necessary permissions, please contact an administrator at your company.

The documents can be added via the "Component management -> Component types" module in the administration panel.

If the desired component type is missing, follow these steps to add it to your list of component types.

Select a component type to add a document.

Once you open the component type page, you can click on the link "Add another Document of Type".

Then click on "Choose file" and select the file you want.

Give your document a descriptive name in the "Document name" field so that the person looking for the file immediately knows what it is. This is the name that will appear on the digital logbook.

Check the "Visible from Driver Logbook Interface" box to display the document on the digital logbook page.

Check the "Delete?" box if you want to remove the document.

Once you've added and/or deleted all the necessary documents, click the "Save" button on the top right corner of the page to save your modifications.

If a document is regularly updated, we advise you to overwrite the last uploaded version with the new one or simply delete the old version and upload the new one. That way, you won't keep older and no longer relevant documents in the system and will avoid mistakenly referring to the wrong version.

You can always click on the document's name to view it before overwriting or deleting it.

Once documents are uploaded and available for an asset, they will be displayed below the list of opened and closed corrective events.
