Setting Vehicles to Active and Hidden for Route Assignment on the Route4Me Web Platform
With Route4Me, you can build an entire fleet of cars, vans, trucks, trailers, semis, or heavy equipment and then effortlessly and efficiently manage, organize, and coordinate them all from one platform. Route4Me provides flexible vehicle settings that allow you to design detailed vehicle descriptions that can best accommodate the particular needs of your business or unique business model. Moreover, with Route4Me’s advanced account-level permissions management, you are able to adjust the visibility settings of your entire fleet with just a touch of the button, allowing your team members to view and edit vehicles, only view vehicles without editing, and so on (learn more). For more convenience, you can also activate and hide vehicles from the list of all vehicles that can be assigned to routes. Thus, if a particular vehicle is under maintenance or is temporarily not available for any reason, you do not need to delete this vehicle from your fleet to restrict it from being assigned to active routes.
To edit the route assignment visibility settings of a particular vehicle, first, go to “Vehicles” from the navigation menu to open the list of all vehicles associated with your Route4Me account. To learn more about fleet visibility permissions and the Route4Me Global Vehicles List, visit this page. Next, click on “Edit” next to the vehicle that you want to modify.
To make the vehicle active and visible in the list of available vehicles when assigning them to routes, check the “Active” box and then click on the “Save Vehicle” button to apply the changes.
Once the vehicle is set to “Active” in the settings, this vehicle becomes available in the list of the vehicles that can be assigned to routes.
To hide the vehicle from the list of vehicles that can be assigned to routes, uncheck the “Active” box and then click on the “Save Vehicle” button to apply the changes.
Once the vehicle is NOT set to “Active” in the settings, this vehicle becomes unavailable in the list of the vehicles that can be assigned to routes.
