Name and Rename Planned Multi Stop Routes – Web Platform

 

With Route4Me route optimization software, you can name and rename your multi stop routes as per your preference. You can name planned routes, name routes as you plan them, or rename any existing route.

 

Naming a Route While Planning It

To name a route while planning it, first, go to the Name tab. By default, the current time, date, and the time zone of your location are assigned to the route as its name.

Naming and Renaming Routes

 

It is recommended to choose simple and easily identifiable route names (i.e., name of the route’s location, name of the assigned driver/vehicle, name of sales territory, etc.) so that it is easier to search for your optimized routes once they are planned. To give the optimized route a custom name, input it into the Route Name field.

Once the route is planned and optimized, it is opened in the Route Editor where you can modify it, as well as added to the Routes List with all your routes. The name of the route opened in the Route Editor is displayed at the bottom of the interactive map in the Summary Table.
