Naming and Renaming Routes

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.

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, etc.) so that it is easier to search for your routes once they are planned. To give the route a custom name, input it into the “Route Name” field.

Once the route is planned, 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.
