Copy-and-Paste – Planning Routes by Copying and Pasting Addresses
Route4Me offers multiple options for importing route data into the system. When using the “Copy-and-Paste” data import method, you can effortlessly plan entire routes by copying a set of addresses from any third-party app, software, storage device or service and then pasting them into Route4Me. Once you pasted addresses in, the system automatically processes, corrects and geocodes them to provide you with accurate data for planning and optimizing efficient routes.
To plan a new route by copying and pasting in addresses, first, go to “Plan New Route” from the navigation menu.
Next, select “Copy-and-Paste” from the corresponding window.
After that, specify the preferred route parameters and then click on the corresponding button to proceed.
Then, paste copied addresses into the “Paste Addresses Below” field. You can copy addresses from any third-party app or software as long as they are accurate and it is possible to geocode them. Addresses should be pasted in one address per one line where the first address will be the starting point of the planned route.
After that, click on the “Add Addresses to Route” button to proceed.
In the “Verify Addresses on Map” window, you can view all pasted addresses on the map, as well as check their geocoding statuses. Green colored dots indicate that the corresponding addresses were successfully geocoded with “High Confidence.” Addresses that have yellow colored dots next to them should be reviewed and fixed accordingly.
Geocoding is the process of giving/assigning latitude and longitude values/coordinates to street addresses for accurate location detection and precise GPS tracking.
To edit a particular address, first, click on it and then select “Edit” respectively.
After that, make the required modifications in the corresponding field and then click “OK” to apply the changes.
After reviewing the pasted addresses, click “Finish Import” to plan the route.
