Bulk Inserting Orders from the Orders Map into Planned Routes
Route4Me is compatible with such e-commerce platforms as Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, osCommerce, Squarespace, Volusion, and other resources that are widely used by many businesses for supporting their e-commerce sites. To make your routing operations and logistics transactions as easy and fast as possible, Route4Me enables you to effortlessly import all your orders from various e-commerce platforms and use them for planning efficient and optimized routes. Planning routes with imported or newly generated orders right on the map enables you to get a visual overview of your customers’ spacial arrangement, improve your routing patterns, and make your logistics transactions more strategical. In addition to planning entirely new routes with your orders, you can also bulk insert multiple orders from the map into already planned routes.
To insert orders from the map into already planned routes, first, go to “Orders” from the navigation menu.
Next, go to the Orders Map by clicking on the globe icon in the top right corner of the screen.
After that, use the calendar to display on the map all orders that are scheduled within the preferred time interval. Alternatively, you can use the search to find orders by their corresponding attributes (Alias, First Name, E-mail, etc.).
Next, use one of the drawing tools in the top left corner of the screen to draw an area around the orders that you want to insert into a particular planned route.
Then, go to “File” and select “Insert into Route” from the menu.
After that, use the search to find the route into which you want to insert the selected orders. To do so, input the full or partial name of the route into the search field and then select the preferred route from the list.
After selecting the route, click “Insert” to insert the orders and stay on the Orders Map. Alternatively, click “Insert + Open Route” to insert the orders and automatically open the corresponding route in the Route Editor.
When inserting orders from the map into a planned route, these orders are automatically inserted into the corresponding route at the most optimal position.
Once the route is opened in the Route Editor, you can view how the inserted orders affect the route’s time and distance, as well as other route metrics that depend on the data contained in the inserted orders.
