Fig. 1.188 Create a plan.

  1. Name(*): use this field to name the plan for your own convenience.

  2. Vehicle configuration (*): (if multiple configurations enabled) select the desired configuration for your vehicle fleet. Drivers, vehicles, work schedules, rest periods may vary depending on the day or according to your activity. Each configuration allows you to define a general setting for a set of vehicles. The various parameters of the vehicle configuration are presented in the chapter on “Vehicle Management”.

  3. Reference: provide a unique free text reference.

  4. Date: fill in the scheduled date of the plan, in order to facilitate automatic exports to the mobile devices configured in your settings.

  5. Tags: tags allow you to create a schedule with a specific subgroup of destinations. Activate the drop-down menu of the “tags” field; the set of existing tags appears. By default, no filter tag is chosen, so all your destinations are sent to the plan to be created. To filter destinations use tags; you can use two additional modes:

  • “ALL”: select “all” from the drop-down menu. Choose one or more filter tags; only destinations associated with all filter tags will be included in the plan. For example, if when creating your plan you choose to filter with the tags “A” and “B”, destinations associated with both “A” and “B” tags will be displayed in the plan. Customers with no tags, customers associated only with tag “A”, destinations associated only with tag “B” or destinations associated with other tags will be excluded. Fig. 1.189

  • “OR” : Select “or” from the drop-down menu. Choose one or more filter tags. Only customers with at least one of the chosen tags will be proposed in the plan. For example, with tags “A” and “B” chosen as filters, only destinations with only tag “A”, or only tag “B”, or with both tags will be used in the plan. Fig. 1.190

  1. Zoning: if you have already created one or more zonings, you can select it/them from the drop-down list (description in the chapter on “Zoning management”). If a zoning is still to be created, you can associate it with your plan later. This field is optional for creating your plan.

  2. Create Plan: click the “Create Plan” button to validate the entry.

Once the entry has been validated, the interactive map is displayed with all the geocoded clients, giving you the possibility to reorder and optimize your routes (details in “Optimizing routes” chapter).

Several actions are available:
  • Assign this point to another vehicle Fig. 1.180

  • Check/Uncheck the stop to plan or unplan it.

  • Go to the destination page for the stop edit.

  • Generate an isochrone or isodistance zoning from the point magic_icon. The drop-down menu offers to draw an isodistance zoning (zoning around a point where the distance is constant) or isochrone zoning (zoning around a point where the journey time is constant).

A line separates off the next section. The position in the route order, destination name and precise address are shown in that section.

A final section, separated by a line, presents delivery information: quantity, scheduled time, ETA, visit duration etc.
