Generate Orders on your iPad

 

Route4Me’s iPad route planner app can be also utilized as a customer order management app since it allows you to generate, route, and manage orders while helping you improve your route planning process and make it more flexible. Orders can be used as one-time transactions or visits as well as reused multiple times.
When using the iPad multi stop route planner as customer order management app, you can generate orders in 3 ways: from your Orders List, Synced Address Book, and from your Destinations.

 

Generating Orders from your Orders List

All orders on your Route4Me account are stored in the Orders List. The Orders List on your iPad allows you to view and edit your orders , plan a route with a set of selected orders and insert your orders into the current routes.

To generate an order in your Orders List, first, go to Orders from the navigation menu at the bottom of the screen.

Generating orders from your Synced Address Book allows you to create orders from the existing database of contacts and addresses that you can adjust to your preference.
