Circles is a gamification, communication and recognition feature that encourages healthy competition by allowing managers and their drivers, as well as employees from across the organization, to form teams, or “Circles”, with each other to securely share driving data and communicate using supportive messages and emojis.
To join a Circle created by your company or a co-worker, look for an invite message via text or other messaging app. You’ll see the name of the person who invited you, the name of the Circle to which you’ve 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” button. To confirm, tap “OK” to be finalize your removal from the Circle.
You can also create your own Circles among co-workers, family and friends.
- Tap “Create a Circle” on your Dashboard
- Name your Circle
- Tap “Create Circle Now”
Begin the invite process by tapping “Add a New Member”.
You can then initiate an invite code by choosing the preferred service to send the invitation (e.g., email, text, etc.), and then selecting someone to invite, either from your Contacts list or by entering a phone number.
Circles Drivers List:
Your Circles are listed at the bottom of your Dashboard screen. Tapping a Circle name will take you to the Leaderboard tab, showing the members of the Circle under 2 tabs:
1) DriverINDEX® Score Tab: All drivers on Mentor Insight App version will be listed under this tab (Note: Drivers in this list will NOT be ranked in any order as DriverINDEX Scores vary from company to company).
2) FICO® Safe Driving Score tab: All drivers on Mentor for Business App version will be listed under this tab and ranked numerically according to their FICO® Safe Driving Scores.
Tap on an individual member to chat with an individual Circle member or view their securely shared Driving data.
