Tools & Descriptions

Filters

These can be applied to your list of unscheduled events to make scheduling much more manageable. Filtering options include Operations, Assignees & Sales Reps, Tags, Date Range, Items, Item Groups, Item Subcategories, & Minimum Days Since Last Visit. The User can also choose to include or exclude event types (Visits, Tasks, PO Tasks, & On Hold Visits).
*Note: You can adjust the setting below to require an Operation filter before opening the Route Planner. This will help reduce load time for accounts with a large number of events.

Additional Notes

  • If you have an account that has 80+ stops in a single day, you will need to extend the schedule day to 12:00AM to 11:59PM in order to accommodate. 
  • Selecting the red button next to the Driver’s name will unschedule & un-assign all events on that Driver’s route.
  • Individual routes can be optimized, memorized, or rescheduled/reassigned using the down arrow next to the Driver’s name.
  • There is a legend at the bottom of the Route Planner page that defines each icon & its color on the page.

  • For weekly scheduled Visits- If the Visits were scheduled for a specific week and then unscheduled, they might be under the TBD section on the Calendar. If the Visits are scheduled but unassigned, they won't show up anywhere on the Route Planner, but you will be able to see them on the Calendar screen.
