The Circles feature in Mentor allows you to share your FICO® Safe Driving Score and other driving performance data with co-workers or friends of your choosing. The My Work Team Circles feature is the default (preset) Circle available within Mentor. This Circle will include all the users / drivers on your team (all drivers reporting to the same manager).
Upon login, you will see up to two preset Circles based on your user role: either My Work Team — Manager; My Work Team — Driver; or both.
For example, a user who is both a manager and a driver will see both My Work Team Circles.
Your My Work Teams user access is controlled by Virtual Risk Manager (VRM). This means if drivers are moved, added, or deleted in VRM, these changes will be reflected in your My Work Team Circle(s) when the app is refreshed or within one hour.
You can also join a Circle created by your company or a co-worker. Look for an invite message via text or other messaging app. You will see the name of the person who invited you, the name of the Circle to which you have been invited, and an invite code.
Tap the Join button at the bottom right of your Mentor Dashboard in the My Circles section and enter the invite code.
To permanently leave a Circle you have joined, go to the Dashboard screen and select the Circle you wish to leave, and then tap on the Leave Circle button. To confirm, tap OK to be removed from the Circle.
You can also create your own Circle among co-workers, friends, and even family.
- Tap Create A Circle on your Dashboard.
- Name your Circle.
- Tap Create A Circle Now.
Begin the invite process by tapping Add A New Member. You will initiate an invite code by choosing the preferred service for sending the invitation (e.g., email or , text, etc.). Then, select someone to invite, either from your contacts list or by entering a phone number.
Your Circles are listed at the bottom of your Dashboard screen. Tapping a Circle’s name will take you to the Leaderboard tab, showing the members of the Circle ranked according to their FICO® Safe
Driving Scores. Tap on an individual member to see their Score, total Trips, Miles / KM driven, Hours driven, as well as the number of assigned Playlist modules and their sub-scores for ECO, Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Distraction, and Speeding.

Type your text in the message box at the bottom of the screen and tap the blue arrow on the right to send your message to the selected Circle member.

Personal and group messages may be up to 160 characters in length. Photos and other attachments are not supported. All messages will be saved for two weeks and then deleted from the Mentor system.
