Get Route & Manual Reordering

The Get Route screen is the last step before optimizing your route. You can modify route parameters such as starting location/time, then finalize your route.

Access the Get Route screen from Planner view by clicking Finalize Route at the bottom of the screen.

The Manual Reorder function allows you to change the order of the Stops on your route after optimizing. Access this option by clicking the Manual Order button in the upper right corner of the Get Route screen.

You can also use the grab bar on the right of any Stop (highlighed with red box below) and drag a Stop anywhere you want on the list. This will automatically set the route as manually ordered.

When you manually reorder an optimized route, you are over-riding the algorithm that determines the fastest route. After you reorder you can choose to either Calculate (maintain your order) or Optimize (change order to create your optimal route).

Optimize or Calculate

Calculate - provides the driving, distance, and total time based on way that you choose to order the route.

Optimize - engages Road Warrior’s advanced algorithm to create the fastest overall route, taking into consideration traffic and any schedules/availability you added to your Stops. Clicking Optimize will override any manual ordering of the route.

Often, it is possible to use Schedules and Availability to create rules about your Stops so that you don’t have to resort to manually reordering your route. We recommend trying to do that first so that you can take full advantage of Road Warrior’s optimization engine to find your fastest route.
