Draft Routes – Creating and Managing Draft Routes Using the Route4Me iPhone App
Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. To make sure that you can always pick up where you left off and never lose your unfinished routes, all routes that are planned but not optimized are automatically added to Drafts and stored locally in your Route4Me iPhone app with their predefined settings. Route4Me provides near real-time data synchronization across all associated computer and mobile devices so that all synchronized draft routes or the routes that are newly planned using Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps automatically become available on the Route4Me Web Platform and vice versa.
To create a new draft route, first, go to “Routes” from the navigation menu, tap on the “Add New Route” button and then select the preferred option for planning the route. To learn more about planning brand new routes, visit this page. To learn more about planning routes with the same addresses as in the current route, visit this page.
Next, adjust the route’s optimization settings and then use the preferred method(s) for adding addresses to the route (learn more).
To manually add the route to “Drafts,” instead of optimizing this route, first, tap on the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and then select “Save to Drafts” from the menu. Alternatively, to make sure that you do not lose your unfinished routes, if the route is not optimized or not added to Drafts manually, this route is added to Drafts automatically by the app.
To view all drafted routes, first, open your Routes List by going to “Routes” from the navigation menu. The “Synced Routes” are the planned and optimized routes that are synchronized with your Route4Me account and can be accessed from all associated devices. To open the list of your drafted routes, tap on “Routes” at the top of the list and then select “Drafts” accordingly.
Draft routes are not synchronized with your Route4Me account and stored locally in your Route4Me iPhone app. To add a particular draft route to your synchronized routes, you need to optimize this draft route accordingly. To do so, first, open the draft route that you want to synchronize by tapping “Open Draft” and confirming when prompted.
After opening the preferred draft route, tap on the “Plan Route” button to optimize the route and then tap “Confirm” when prompted.
Once the draft route is optimized, it is automatically added to your synchronized routes (Synced Routes) and becomes available on all devices associated with your Route4Me account.
Route4Me provides near real-time data synchronization across all associated computer and mobile devices so that all synchronized draft routes or the routes that are newly planned using Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps automatically become available on the Route4Me Web Platform and vice versa.
