Adding Stops to a Route on an Android Device
Once a route is created, you can start adding stops(destinations) by tapping “Add Destination” at the bottom of the screen.
To add a stop to a route manually, type the address into the corresponding field. Route4Me allows you to type in the address partially and select one of the suggested variants.
Once the address of the destination is filled, you can add an alias and a phone number.
To continue adding stops manually, tap “Save & Add New.” If you want to finish, tap “Save & Close.”
You can also add an address from the contacts that are saved on your Android device by selecting the corresponding option.
If you want to add your current location as an address, tap on the “Get Address of Current Location” button.
Importing Addresses into a Route
If you need to add multiple stops at a time, you can upload addresses in bulk from your Android device in the form of CSV or XLS files or import them from cloud-based storage such as Google Drive or Dropbox. To do so, tap on the “Import” tab in the top right corner of the screen.
On the “Import” screen, tap “Upload CSV or XLS File” to import files with addresses saved on your Android device. The spreadsheet you upload should contain the minimum of two columns: an “Alias,” or a name of the customer, and an “Address,” consisting of the street name and number, city, state and zip code. You can learn more about the requirements for uploading spreadsheets here.
Select the file from the library on your Android device to import it.
Provided that the uploaded spreadsheet meets the requirements mentioned above, the addresses are geocoded and added to the route respectively.
You can also download a sample file and use it as a template for uploading multiple addresses.
