Working with Routes

Team RoadWarrior adds team-based functionality to the core of Road Warrior, with features such as assigning drivers to routes and the ability to have multiple tabbed routes open simultaneously.

Create a New Route

There are two easy ways to create a new Route in Road Warrior.

Create a new route from the 'Planner/Map' and click on the '+' icon at the upper right.

Creating a route from Route Planner

Or you can make a route from the Routes tab (get there by clicking the diamond icon in the side menu), by clicking on the '+' icon at the upper or lower right.

Warrior Tip: Routes are automatically saved. When you create a New Route, your "old route" is already saved, and you can see it listed under the Routes section of the left menu.

If you do not name your route, the route name automatically saves as: year.month.date.time. For example, a route created on June 21st, 2018 at 11:13pm will be displayed in the sortable timestamp format: 2018.06.21 23:13.

Open Your Route

Use the Routes tab to manage all of your routes. Currently open routes are listed at the top, and are indicated by a light gray circle.

Warrior Tip: For a quick action, you can simply hover over a route. A set of icons will appear on the right side, which you can use to open/close your route, edit, and delete.

Activate route

Opening a route will display the route in Planner mode. You can have multiple routes open at a time, and switch between them by selecting the named tabs.

tabs

Multi-Select Mode

Multi-Select mode allows you to manage multiple routes at a time. Enter multi-selection mode by clicking on the circle icon of a route, or on the edit button in the toolbar.
Enable multi selection

Deleting Routes

To delete multiple routes, simply select the routes you wish to delete by clicking on them. Once they are selected, simply click on the garbage can at the top of the screen to dispose of them.

If no routes are selected in this mode, pressing Delete will delete ALL routes. Please double check you have selected the routes that you wish to delete.

Merging Routes

The merge route button will take any non-complete stops from the selected routes, and merge them into a new route with all those stops. Note that the stops will not be deleted from the original routes.

Set Planned Time

You can plan a route for a future time and date with the route editor. You can access the editor either from Planner View (click the Info (i) button on the top-left) or in the Routes tab (click on a Route and select Edit).

Set planned time

The default setting is to start the route at the time of Optimization (Dynamic), but you can set the start time to any time in the future by clicking "Planned Time" and checking 'Is Hard Start.' You can then select a date and time for your route to start.

You can also set a specific end time for the route by checking 'Is Hard Stop' and choosing a date and time.

Set Departure Point

The green flag on the map indicates the starting point, which defaults to your current location. However, you can set your route to begin at any location. Simply long click on the map and click "Update Start" to set the departure location. Or, type a location into the search bar, select it, and click Update Start.

Warrior Tip: Remember, the default is to start at your current location (Dynamic).

Round Trip

If you want your trip to end in the same place it starts, you can edit your route to make it a round trip. From the Planner view click the Info (i) icon on the upper right and click Edit at the bottom of the pop-up. Then select “Is Round Trip.”

Or access the setting from the Routes tab by clicking on a route to open the route options.

Your green start flag will appear with a checkerboard background to indicate that the route is a roundtrip. Note: you cannot have a round trip route that also has a dynamic start location.

Copy Route

The Copy feature allows you to easily duplicate any route (including all Stops and settings), free of Check-Ins. If you run the same route often, this is the best way to keep track of every time you run the route.

To Copy a route, press the Info (i) button from the planner view and select Copy. You can also Copy a route from the Routes tab by clicking 'Copy Route' from the quick options of that route card.

Assign Route to a Driver

Assigning a driver to a route allows them to see, interact with, and complete the route. To assign a driver, first press the Info (i) button at the top left of Planner view. This will bring you to the route summary, where you can select your driver from a drop-down menu. The assigned driver should be able to see the route in their app after they sync.

Warrior Tip: You should only assign a route to a driver once you have added stops. If you assign a route and then add stops, the driver will not see the stops until they perform a sync.

Clear Stops from a Route

Rather than deleting all stops for a route, we recommend simply creating a New Route and deleting the old one if no longer needed.
