Custom Data Business Rule – Add Custom Fields to Routes
Route4Me makes it easy to plan accurate and efficient routes. All you need to do is plug in the addresses of your customers, set the preferred constraints (number of drivers, availability window for each customer, etc.), and then your optimized routes will be ready in less than 30 seconds. Since each business and business model is unique and has specific needs, there might be information you want to use for your routes that cannot fit into Route4Me’s predefined fields. That being said, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to route planning. Route4Me’s Custom Data add-on allows you to add as many custom fields as you want to your routes so that you can fully accommodate the particular needs of your business.
To add custom data to a particular stop, first, open the route that contains this stop in the Route Editor. Next, open the stop to which you want to add custom data. After that, click on the “Add Custom Data” button in the stop’s menu.
In the “Add Custom Data” window, you can create new custom fields and attache custom content to these fields.
To create multiple custom fields, click on the “Add One More” button.
After creating new custom fields and attaching custom content to these fields, click on the “Add Custom Data” button to attach all data to the corresponding stop.
To view all custom data of a particular stop, open the stop’s menu and then scroll to the “Custom Data” section.
To edit custom data of the stop, click on the “Field Content” (Editable) of a particular “Field Name” (Not Editable) and then modify the data to your preference.
To remove a particular custom data field, first, click on the gear icon next to this field and then select “Delete” from its menu.
To add a particular custom data field to all stops on the route, first, click on the gear icon next to this field and then select “Apply to All” from its menu.
Next, check the custom data you are adding to all stops in the corresponding window and then click on the “Confirm” button.
After that, the corresponding custom field and its content are added to the “Custom Data” section of all stops on the route.
To view the custom data of a particular stop from Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile applications, first, you need to open the route that contains the corresponding stop. Next, tap to open the stop you want to check.
After that, select “Destination Info” from the stop’s menu.
On the “Destination Info” screen of the stop, you can view the added custom data in the corresponding separate fields.
Route4Me provides near real-time data synchronization across all associated computer and mobile devices so that any changes made from the Route4Me Web Platform can be effortlessly synchronized with Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps in a matter of seconds. Thus, managers and dispatchers back at the office can add or modify custom data of any stop and instantly synchronize these updates with the mobile devices of the drivers who are out in the field.
