The Route tab inside the quotation lets you manage all of the information related to the route of the trip.
Start writing the address or point of interest.
Choose a point from those suggested or define a new favorite point by clicking on the + icon.
In the list of suggestions, the favorite points have the light blue icon, while the gray ones are addresses and points of interest suggested by the Algolia Places geographic search.
To find out more about favorite points read the guide to manage favorite places.
Keep in mind that if you specify the Date and Time of a route point, you must also specify the Type, and vice versa (except for the two types ‘start duty – time to be defined’ and ‘finish duty – time to be defined’.)
Specify the type by choosing from the available options.
Each route must necessarily start with a pickup (or hire duty start) and end with a dropoff (or Hire duty finish) to be valid.
Add new points from the + button below, and remove them with the trash can.
You can also duplicate a route point. Right-click on it and select Duplicate.
Drag the rows to re-order the points of the trip as you want. Every timetable must necessarily be consecutive to the preceding one. Any error in the order of the schedule or the types is reported when saving.
After having decided the route, you can view it directly on Google Maps by going to the Details tab and clicking on the icon inside the Distance field. On Google Maps, you can read the distances and duration times of your route.
- Hire Duties
Click on the blue arrow of the Route tab and select Hire Duties.
The rows of vehicle and driver shifts are automatically generated according to the location and number of vehicles specified.
The image below, for example, shows, in the case of a quotation with two vehicles, the hire duties of the first and second turn (# 2).
To add a driver or assistant hire duty, click on the + at the bottom. Choose the type of Resource, the Vehicle hire in which to enter it, and if the duration is entire or partial. In the second case, you can specify different hours and places of start and finish.
Each driver’s hire duty is marked with a capital letter that distinguishes it from the others within the same vehicle turn.
To change an already existing hire duty, click on the icon of the blue pencil in the left part of the row.
If more than one pair of hire duty start – hire duty finish is specified, for each one a vehicle hire duty is created.
The image below shows, for example, the hire duty 1 and the hire duty number 2.
