  3. Tap on "Battery Usage"
  4. Tap on the three-dot menu (top right corner)

Motorola

  1. Go to your smartphone's Settings
  2. Tap "Battery"
  3. Tap on the menu in the top right corner
  4. Tap "Battery optimization"
  5. Tap "Not optimized"
  6. Tap "All Apps"
  7. Find Convoy on this list and tap on "Don’t Optimize".
  8. Go back to your phone settings*
  9. Select "Battery"*
  10. Turn Battery Saver Mode off*

* When your Motorola reaches a low level of battery (15% by default, though you can customize it), the battery saver mode automatically starts and ignores the battery optimization setting you've chosen previously, so steps 8, 9, and 10 are advisable.

 

If you are still having problems disabling your android device's battery optimization, please "Give Feedback" on the main menu of the app and we will followup with you directly! It is important to have this turned off so Convoy can process your correct in/out times, etas, detention, and carrier scorecard.
