Add Routes to Third-Party Calendar Apps – Android
Route4Me’s Android Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. With Route4Me’s Android Route Planner, you can effortlessly synchronize your optimized routes with your Google Calendar, as well as any other preferred third-party calendar application installed on your Android device. Thus, after adding a particular route to the preferred calendar app, you can set up alerts and reminders, share the calendar event with your team members, and more.
To add a Route4Me route to your Google Calendar or any preferred third-party calendar app, first, go to “My Routes” from the navigation menu to open the list of all routes associated with your Route4Me account. Next, tap on the route that you want to add to your calendar and then select “Add to Calendar” from the route’s menu.
Next, select the preferred calendar application from the list and then choose whether you want to use the selected calendar app as default for all your routes (Always) or use the selected calendar app only once (Just Once). To add the selected route to your Google Calendar, select the “com.google.android.calendar” option.
After that, a new event for the selected route is automatically created in your Google Calendar. By default, Route4Me’s app automatically synchronizes the start and end time of the route with the corresponding event in your Google Calendar. To save the event, tap on the “Save” button in the top right corner of the screen.
NOTE: When you reschedule the route that is added to your Google Calendar from your Route4Me Android app, the corresponding event is automatically updated in your Google Calendar. To reschedule an opened route, first, tap on the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and then tap on the calendar in the “Start Time” field.
After that, use the calendar to reschedule the route and then tap on the back arrow icon in the top left corner of the screen to apply the changes. To learn more about rescheduling routes, visit this page.
Once the route is rescheduled in the Route4Me app, the linked event in your Google Calendar is automatically updated accordingly.
NOTE: When you reschedule an event in your Google Calendar that is linked to a particular route in your Route4Me app, the corresponding route in your Route4Me app is not affected.
NOTE: When you delete the route in the Route4Me app that has a linked event in your Google Calendar, the corresponding event in your Google Calendar is automatically deleted.
