Android Custom Data – Adding, Viewing, and Editing Custom Data Attached to Route Stops Using Route4Me’s Android Route Planner

Route4Me’s Android Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to effortlessly plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. To accommodate the particular needs of your business or unique business model, whenever there is any type of data that does not fit into Route4Me’s predefined fields, you can attach this information to your route stops as custom data. Custom data fields can be added to your route stops from the Route4Me Web Platform, and the content in those custom data fields can be viewed, filled out, and modified using Route4Me’s Android app. Thus, dispatchers and managers back at the office can specify what kind of custom data they want to get from the drivers who are out in the field, and the drivers can capture the corresponding information according to the predefined requirements.

After that, you can add new custom data fields and fill them out with the preferred content. When you add new custom data fields and fill them out with content on the Route4Me Web Platform, these fields (field names) cannot be changed, but the content in these fields can be modified from the Route4Me Web Platform and Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps. If you want to have particular custom data fields filled out specifically from Route4Me’s mobile apps, you can add these custom data fields to the stop and leave the corresponding content fields empty.
