Generic import- Drivers
Vision can now be used to import and update driver information for existing and new drivers regardless of whether they have tachograph data uploaded for analysis by FTA.
The information is added by the company to a pre- defined template and uploaded to Vision where it is displayed on the Manage my driver page and detailed within the driver profile.
Uploading the data
To use the Driver import feature first contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have the correct role activated.
Go to the import page by either selecting the Import tile on the Home page or by selecting the import icon on the left hand side of the screen.
Click on the drop down box and select “Drivers”
Download a copy of the CSV template shown below
The file downloaded includes a “read me” document. This shows you the format required for each column as well as highlighting which of the fields are mandatory:
Open the template document and complete the relevant fields and then save. The document must be saved in a CSV format.
Click next, then click “choose files” and select the completed template, and then click “send files to FTA”
As the files are uploaded then you will be taken to the “File Import Results” page to view the progress.
If the import is successful the job status will be displayed as “Import Complete”
If there is a problem the job status will be “File rejected” and you will see the an option to “View rejection Reasons” Clicking this will explain what has been rejected so that you can update the template and re import it
If a location has been added incorrectly you will be able to update this on the import page by clicking “correct errors” and updating the template
When the data has been uploaded successfully the drivers and their records will be updated in Vision displayed in Manage my drivers and Driver profile.
