Drivers

If more than one person drives a car, you can add them as an additional driver. To manage drivers for a car, tap the car on the home screen followed by the "Drivers" button.

Additional drivers can view a car's statistics, as well as add fuel and expenses.

Adding a driver

To add a new driver, tap "Add Driver" and you'll be asked to enter the driver's email address.

If the email address you enter belongs to an existing GloveBox user they'll be prompted to accept your invitation in the app within an hour or two. If they log in using Facebook, the email address you enter needs to match the one on their Facebook account.

If the email address you enter doesn't belong to an existing GloveBox user, they'll receive an email with a link to download the app. They'll be prompted to accept your invitation as soon as they either: (1) Create an account using the same email address you entered or (2) Log in using Facebook and the email address on their Facebook account matches the email address you entered.

Removing a driver

You can tap the "Remove" button next to any driver to remove them from the car. They won't be able to view statistics or add fuel/expenses unless you add them again.

Drivers and owners

Although drivers can add fuel and expenses, as well as view statistics and graphs, there are some things that only a car's owner can do.

  • Only a car's owner can edit details about the vehicle, create reminders and add/remove additional drivers.
  • Fuel and expense entries can only be edited or removed by a car's owner and the driver who created them.
  • Locations created by a car's owner are shared between all drivers of the car, but only the car's owner can create, edit and delete locations.

You can tell if you're currently a car's owner because because you'll see an "Edit" button after you select the car on the home screen.

You can transfer ownership of the car to one of the drivers if you want, but you'll no longer be able to manage the car in GloveBox. This is useful if you've sold the car and want to transfer the GloveBox history of the vehicle to the new owner. To transfer ownership tap the "Make owner" button next to the driver you want to become the new owner.
