1.10.1. Export Routes


Our tool allows you to export all your tours individually or simultaneously in different formats.

Exports via printouts, spreadsheets, and GPX / KML tracks (for GPS models connected by cable) are always available. If you have a mobility partner configured, its export options appear in the drop-down menu. Each vehicle must be linked to the corresponding mobility device Fig. 1.208.

Fig. 1.210 Export window for spreadsheet

All the information in a plan can be exported. Sorted into three groups, all information is exported by default.

“Extra stops” can be unplanned destinations, departure and arrival stores, rest breaks and unchecked stops. “Columns” are the information contained in the routes. If information is not needed in the export, you can drag-and-drop it in the “Skip” box. If you click and hold on the information then slide it across to the gray “Skip” area, that column is removed from the export. See the explanatory video. The spreadsheet format is CSV (Comma Separated Value) format for a standard or Excel spreadsheet program.


To open a CSV file with Excel, please see the explanatory sheet.

Click on the download button to download the CSV file. It is stored on the PC in the Downloads folder.

Les conditions suivantes doivent être remplies pour que les données transmises par Mapotempo soient interprétables par Praxedo : - Le mode multi-visite doit être activé (option activable sur demande) - Dans la page « Paramétrage global », il faut enregistrer vos identifiants Praxedo. Ces identifiants permettent à notre application d’envoyer les plans de tournées et toutes les informations nécessaires sur le serveur Praxedo. Fig. 1.218


Fig. 1.218 Praxedo vehicle setting

  • For each route to be sent to each of the vehicles in question, go to the “vehicle configuration” page in our application and save the unique ID for the vehicle corresponding to the “technician code” in Praxedo. Fig. 1.219


Fig. 1.219 Vehicle’s Praxedo Technician code

For each visit:

  • A reference on the destination can be defined (to be completed when importing). It will be sent to Praxedo to identify the equipment name (equipmentName)

  • A quantity must be associated to the visit (to be picked up by Mapotempo). Sending to Praxedo, if the quantity exists on Mapotempo side for the route in question, it is updated.

  • A reference can be defined. It will be sent to Praxedo along with the “Code of material to be delivered”

Then, once that information is saved, for each vehicle, a route can be sent to Praxedo directly. On the routes display page, just click on the routes export icon and then click on “Send to Praxedo” :numref: app-plans-export_praxedo_plan
