New feature - Driver re-optimize

If you have feedback or suggestions, please reach out — we'd love to hear from you!

We've added a new feature that allows drivers to re-optimize remaining stops on routes in progress, directly from the Delivery Driver mobile app. This feature can be particularly useful when previous stops in the route were delivered out of order from the originally optimized sequence.

By default, the setting for driver re-optimization is turned off, but can be enabled from EasyRoutes Settings > Driver settings tab, in the Driver app settings section:

Once the setting is enabled, drivers using the Delivery Driver mobile app will have access to the Re-optimize button as soon as any stop in their route is marked as Delivered or Attempted out of order from their originally optimized sequence:

Once tapped, the route will reload after re-optimization is complete. Completed stops (both Attempted and Delivered) will be consolidated, and all remaining stops will be re-ordered in an optimal sequence.

Note: The driver re-optimize feature is currently only available on Premium and Enterprise pricing plans. Drivers will need to be using the latest version of the Delivery Driver mobile app (version 1.0.36 or above) in order to take advantage of this new feature.

Delivery Driver Mobile App - Version 1.0.36

The EasyRoutes Delivery Driver mobile app has been updated to version 1.0.36 for iOS & Android, including support for the new driver re-optimize feature, as well as various minor improvements and bug fixes.
