Planned vs Visited Route Stops: Using Route4Me’s Dashboard for Comparing the Visited vs Planned Destinations on Your Scheduled and Active Routes
Route4Me’s interactive Dashboard is a powerful yet flexible reporting and analytics tool designed to help you collect multiple types of actionable intelligence generated by your remote teams and visualize it all in a single centrally-synched control panel. You can use your Dashboard for monitoring the real-time progress of your entire fleet or individual drivers, auditing the statistics of your infrastructure for any given day or date range, exporting custom reports, and so on. For maximum efficiency and productivity, Route4Me’s Dashboard provides detailed and extremely useful comparison charts and graphs that permit you to compare your planned KPIs with the actual performance of your last mile routing and logistics operations.
For example, Route4Me’s Dashboard enables you to compare the number of Planned vs Visited route stops for any given day or date range or associated with all or individual team members. Matching Planned vs Visited stops will allow you to compare the number of scheduled customer visits on your optimized routes with the actual number of customers visited by your drivers or field employees. Furthermore, your Route4Me Dashboard can synchronize the Planned vs Visited data generated from Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps with the Route4Me Web Platform in real-time, and vice versa.
To compare the Planned vs Visited destinations on all your optimized routes, first, go to “Dashboard” from the navigation menu.
Next, you can display the Total Stops and Addresses Visited data in the Totals section of your Dashboard to get a quick overview of both metrics. To view a more detailed comparison chart of the Planned vs Visited stops on your routes, enable the Stops (Planned vs Visited) chart in the Graphs section of your Dashboard. To do so, first, click on the three dots menu icon and then select the preferred option(s).
After that, you can filter the Planned vs Visited route stops data that you want to be displayed in your Dashboard for a specific day or date range and/or by one or multiple team members. To filter the Dashboard for a specific day or date range, first, click on the calendar in the top right corner and then select one of the predefined time intervals or specify any custom day or date range accordingly. When using the date filter, your Dashboard displays the information of all routes that are scheduled for the selected day or for the dates within the specified date range.
For a more detailed insight into the performance of each member in your team, Route4Me enables you to filter the Planned vs Visited route stops data by all, grouped, or individual team members. To do so, select one or multiple team members from the corresponding drop-down menu in the top left corner of the Dashboard.
Thus, you can easily monitor the number of scheduled vs visited destinations of all or each individual driver in real-time or for any available historical date range. NOTE: When you select a user with one or more sub-users, check the “Include All Sub-Users in the Report” box if you want to see the data of all associated sub-users in your Dashboard. When you filter the report by member(s), your Dashboard displays all available information of those routes that the selected team member(s) are assigned to.

A route stop is considered to be visited when it is Marked as Visited by the team member that is assigned to the given route. With Route4Me, you and your team members can navigate routes and mark route destinations as Visited using the Route4Me Web Platform, as well as Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps. Thus, for example, your Dispatchers and Managers can plan and dispatch routes from the office using the Route4Me Web Platform and monitor how each destination is visited by the Drivers that are using Route4Me’s Android and iOS mobile apps on their smartphones when out in the field. You can learn more about marking route addresses as Visited and Departed here: iOS and Android.
The Stops (Planned vs Actual) graph displays the number of planned stops against the number of already visited stops on the routes that are scheduled for the selected date(s) and associated with the selected team members. In the Route4Me Routes List where all your routes are stored, you can use the following columns to check the Planned vs Visited stops on each individual route:
- The Stops column displays the total number of stops on each route.
- The Progress (%) column shows the progress percentage of each scheduled route – if all stops on the given route are visited, the Progress (%) column will show 100%.
You can consolidate all your Planned vs Visited route destinations by day or by stop type. To group the data displayed in the Dashboard by day, select the corresponding grouping option, and make sure to filter the data for the preferred date or date range using the calendar. NOTE: When grouping information by day, your Dashboard shows the data sorted by one day of each date within the specified date range.
To ensure the most efficient last mile optimization, Route4Me permits you to account for different destination types when planning your routes. Depending on your specific business needs and routing requirements, you may have pick-ups, meet-ups, deliveries, service, and other stop types on your routes. Thus, Route4Me allows you to consolidate the data in your Dashboard by each stop type available in your optimized routes. To consolidate the data in your Dashboard by all available stop types, select the corresponding grouping option in the top right corner. Once your Planned vs Visited stops data is consolidated by stop type, you will be able to see how many route destinations of each type are scheduled and how many stops of each type have already been visited and serviced.
