How to BYO drivers: add your own drivers

The BYO drivers feature under GoSHIFT allows your staff/contractors/drivers to have access to the same technology as Go People Runners to complete deliveries! Each Subscription plan allows you to add Own Drivers by invitation in your Go People account. Once added to your Go People account, your own drivers will only be able to see your shifts & jobs, and will be unable to see any other shifts & jobs on the Go People Runner App.

Adding your own driver(s) is really simple:

  1. You own driver(s) need to download the Go People Runner App from Google Play (for an Android phone) or from the App Store (if they have an iPhone).
  2. Your driver(s) then need to open the Runner App and make a Runner account by signing up and logging in.

NOTE: Own Driver(s) do not need to go through our induction process, including training.

  • In your Go People account, click on ‘BYO Drivers’ on the left hand navigation. Click on the "Invite a driver" button.
  • Enter the mobile number of your own driver, then click ‘INVITE’.

NOTE: You can only send one invite at a time; for multiple own driver invitations simply repeat steps 3 & 4 till all invitations are sent.

  • The invitation(s) will be sent through Go People admin to:
  1. Approve if the driver is not a Go People Runner - Invitation sent to Runner App.
  2. Decline if the driver is a Go People Runner (you’ll need to contact us).
  • If the invitation is approved your account will display the invitation status on the ‘BYO drivers’ page.
  • Your driver will also receive a notification in the Go People Runner App which they can choose to agree or decline.
  • After pressing ‘Agree’, the driver will appear in the ‘My Own Drivers’ section in your Go People account.
  • All Done! Your own driver(s) now have access to the same features as Go People Runners and can be assigned your shifts & jobs.
