Route Assistant scheduling

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

We've added a new setting to the Route Assistant, allowing route planners to configure how far in advance of a route's scheduled start time to stop automatically staging orders for addition to that route. When configured, newly received orders matching the filters applied in the Route Assistant will be automatically staged on the map in the Add orders tab for a route, up until a custom number of minutes, hours, or days before the route is scheduled to start (in the example shown below, 3 hours prior to the route's scheduled start time).

Configure this cut-off time by enabling the Route Assistant from the Route Options page prior to creating a new route, or from the Auto-add orders panel below the map on the Add orders tab of any existing route:

Note: Routes must have a future scheduled start date and time in order for the Route Assistant to properly calculate and apply a scheduled cut-off window.
