Uploading a File on an Android Device
Route4Me Route Planner for Android provides multiple options that allow you to easily upload multiple addresses for planning and optimizing routes. To upload a spreadsheet with addresses to your Route4Me account using an Android device, first, go to “My Routes” from the navigation menu.
Then, tap “Add Route” to upload a spreadsheet for creating a new route. Alternatively, you can upload a spreadsheet with addresses into an existing route. To do so, open a planned route, then tap “Add Destinations” and follow the same steps as provided below.
When creating a new route, fill out the route’s information and tap on the checkmark icon in the top right corner of the screen.
On the “Stops” screen, tap “Add Destination.”
Then, go to the “Import” tab by tapping on it and select one of the suggested variants of import. To upload addresses from your Google Drive or Dropbox, select one of the corresponding variants and follow further in-app instructions respectively. To upload a spreadsheet from your Android device, select “Upload CSV or XLS File.”
After selecting the “Upload CSV or XLS File” option, navigate through your Android device and pick the spreadsheet that you want to upload into the Route4Me Route Planner (only CSV and XLS file formats are supported).
Once the spreadsheet is uploaded and processed by the Route Planner, the successfully geocoded addresses are displayed in the “Found” field. You can learn more about the requirements for spreadsheets here. To save the imported addresses and add more, tap on the corresponding button. To save the imported addresses and proceed to plan the route, tap “Save & Close.”
After the route is planned with the imported addresses, tap “Optimize” to get the most efficient sequence of stops. By default, unoptimized routes are added to the “Drafts” tab of the “My Routes” screen.
Once the route is planned and optimized, it is added to the “Synced” tab and displayed in the list of your routes respectively.
