Organization Structure

In this article, you will get acquainted with the structure of your Onfleet organization and the difference between the three email fields available in the "Settings" option of the administrator account for an organization. 

This article covers: 

Organization Structure

Account Owner

The account owner is the creator of the Onfleet organization. The account owner will have access to all the same functions as administrators; however, Account Owners are the only users who have access to Billing information for an organization. Each organization has one account owner. 

Administrator

The organization administrator can configure the organization, and add and manage:  teams, hubs, dispatchers, and drivers. The administrator can also access analytics for the entire organization and any connected sub-organizations. 

Teams

The "Teams" function groups drivers and dispatchers together, and can be used to segment an organization by geographic area, operational unit, or any other desired structure. The administrator has access to all teams while dispatchers and drivers have access only to teams they have been assigned.

Hubs

A Hub is a central location from which your drivers start and end routes. For example:

  • A city headquarters
  • A warehouse
  • A central kitchen
  • A parking lot

Hubs are created by administrators and can be assigned to one or more teams. However, teams can only be assigned one hub at a time.

Dispatchers

Dispatchers are added by the administrator and are assigned to one or more teams. A dispatcher is a dashboard user who views and/or manages drivers and tasks for assigned teams. For example:

  • A driver manager
  • A route planner
  • A customer service agent

Drivers

Drivers are added by the administrator of an organization or a dispatcher and are assigned to one or more teams. They complete tasks in the field using the driver app on Android or iOS.

Tasks

Tasks represent pickup or delivery work to perform at a destination. For example:

  • Delivery of groceries or meal kits
  • Delivery of a medicine prescription
  • Pickup of laundry or dry-cleaning
  • Pickup of a retail/e-commerce return

Tasks are completed by drivers using the driver app on Android or iOS.
