Copy & Paste – Plan Routes by Copying and Pasting Addresses

Route4Me’s dynamic routing software provides multiple options for importing route data into the route optimization system – you can even copy and paste route stops and customers’ addresses. When using the Copy-and-Paste data import method, you can effortlessly plan multi stop 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.

 

When you want to copy and paste route stops to plan a multi stop route, first, go to Plan New Route from the navigation menu.

Addresses that have yellow colored dots next to them should be reviewed and fixed accordingly.
