It will use the sequence in STOPcontrol to build the route. Re-sequence the Stops and the map will recalculated...

VIEWroute map functionality

What it is and how to use it...

This guide will step through the functions available on the map

Avoid areas

During the routing process it is possible to use the drawing function to draw areas on the map that need to be avoided.

Avoid areas are added per account, per day. If you add an avoid area to a route for a specific date, it will be active for any route on that day. Avoid is not per route.

  • Known roadworks

  • Known areas of delay, for example events, closed roads

  • Specific constraints

Drawing tools.PNG

Click to blue to draw on the map, click to white to deactivate the draw

Click to remove the drawn area. Use the draw tool to try again or....

...the save button to save the delete.

*This function still includes live traffic and vehicle type restrictions

As we are using LIVE traffic, this function means as a planner you can show 'current problem' areas. This means that optimiser will avoid the area, so more accurate routing and routes pushed to the smartphone tracking application are correct and providing the carrier with the best information currently available.

Sending a driver purposely into a known, daily 1 hr delay set of roadworks would not be kind and would definitely mean a failed delivery!
