Assign a journey
DVSA highlight that companies must be able to give an explanation where there is a mileage discrepancy when either an analogue chart or a driver card is not inserted when a vehicle has been driven. They recognise that there are plenty of circumstances where this is legal but want proof that each instance has been examined and can be explained.
The assign journey feature allows you to carry out this procedure electronically and will update any KM discrepancy reporting by highlighting those KMs that have not been assigned either to a journey or a driver.
To enable this alert you will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Setting up your alerts
To switch on the alert go to Vision admin and select the Alert settings tile:
Click the assign journey to “on” and then allocate the number of KMs discrepancy you will and theallow before being alerted.
and then add your journey names by typing in the name and clicking “add”
Once you have added the details click save and return to Vision.

The alert will display the details of when the discrepancy took place and on which vehicle. If the data has come from a digital vehicle you can also link to the vehicle calendar and the day detail page to see the context of the discrepancy as well as being able to view the vehicle profile and being able to assign a driver.

Displaying assigned information- Digital data
Where journeys or drivers have been assigned to digital data you will see these results in the Manage my driver pages, Driver calendar and day detail. Where a driver has been assigned the data will be displayed in purple, where a journey has been assigned the data will be displayed in orange. When both journey and driver have been assigned the data will be displayed in purple. Details of the journey type and driver will be available on the day detail page and through tool tips
Digital data- reports
When journeys and drivers have been assigned this information will be displayed in a new section of the Driver card exception report called Assigned data. This will display the details of the driver and or the journey type in the assigned data section. Where a journey has been assigned this will be displayed in orange, where a driver has beeen assigned this will be displayed in purple and where both a journey and driver are assigned this will be shown as purple.
The vehicle driving summary report will also include an extra column displaying where journies have been assigned
Assigning a journey- analogue data
Vision does not store information relating to analogue vehicles so when discrepancies arise for these vehicles you will only see the journey assigned on the Vehicle Discontinuity report.
Click the alert and select a journey for the discrepancy you want to update.
Once you have selected the correct journey type, select accept
The alert will be removed from the page but the details that you have assigned to it will be displayed on the Vehicle discontinuity report
