Possible use case:
You visit some of your locations on Monday, others on Tuesday, third set on Wednesday and so on. You can create a route that includes all your locations for Monday and call it “Monday Route”. Then, when creating your trip for Monday, instead of adding the locations to visit one by one, simply click
Add Locations from Route button and select “Monday Route”. All locations assigned to the route will be added to the trip at once.
Same scenario can apply if you create a route for machines serviced by a certain driver (“Jonny’s Route”), or machines in Norhtwest area of city (“NW Route”), or only snack machines (“Snack Route”) and so on.
Another benefit of using routes is the option to filter report data by route. On
Reports tab click button Filter By Route and select the route(s) to show in reports. The reports will display data only for the locations assingned to the selected routes.
View and manage your routes by clicking on
Columns in Routes table

Description: Route description
# Locations: number of locations in this route
# Machines: number of machines in this route
