Changing the Order of Addresses in a Planned Route

You can modify your route structure by changing the address sequence after a route was optimized.

 

Editing the Address Sequence in the Route Editor

The Route Editor allows you to modify the structure of your route by changing the address sequence, change the departure and ending addresses of a route and duplicate stops.

 

Dragging and Dropping a Destination in the Route Editor

After opening your route, click and hold on the address you want to move, then drag and drop it to the new position within the route.

Route4Me is route scheduling software where you can drag and drop destinations using its route editor

If you want to set the selected address as the departure address, simply drag it to the top of the address list.

 

Setting a Destination as the First or Last in the Route Editor

To set a destination as the first or last on the route, right-click on it in the list on the left-hand side of the route editor, then select one of the available options:

  • – Make Origin – the address is set as the start/departure point of the route and, if the address is a round-trip, it will also set it as the “End” address;
  • – Make First – the address is moved to the first position in the destinations list (after the departure address);
  • – Make Last – the address will be the last one on the route; if the route is set as a round-trip, then it will become the last before the departure/end address.

A final mile route optimization software, Route4Me indicates first and last destinations in a route

 

Duplicating a Stop in the Route Editor

Any destination on a planned route can be duplicated. In the route editor, right-click on the destination, then select one of the available options:

  • – Duplicate this Stop – the destination is duplicated as a general stop (no stop type assigned);
  • – Duplicate this Stop as… – hovering your mouse cursor over this option will bring up a pop-up menu with the available address stop types: pickup, delivery, break, meetup, service, visit or drive by.

Route4Me serves as route planner with multiple stops where you can duplicate stops

The duplicated stop will be inserted in the route just after the original stop. Most of the information associated with the stop will be duplicated, including the address, alias and custom data. Notes and visitation triggers are the only data types that will NOT be duplicated.

 

Editing the Address Sequence in the Routes Map

The timeline section of the Routes Map allows you to make multiple changes to the structure of your planned routes. To start, go the Routes Map and check the box next to the route you want to edit.
