Once you've added jobs to the schedule, ServiceCore lets you establish routes to help save you time.
Routes allow you to group together jobs which repeat once a week, while adding destinations and departure times. Routes can be optimized, or saved in your preferred order so that every week they repeat in the same exact order.
In this article we'll walk through the steps to Create a Route.
Before You Start
Before creating a Route, please keep this in mind:
- You must have Manager, Admin or Owner level permission to add or edit Routes
- You must have Destinations created
- You must have a user listed on the schedule.
- You must have jobs created which repeat "Every 1 Weeks"

After you create a route
Now that you've created a route, you'll be able to identify it on the schedule.
The letter "R" listed on jobs on the schedule indicates that these jobs are part of an established route.
How to Edit a Route
If you need to make changes to an existing route, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Routes tab under your Schedule Settings
- Locate the Route you wish to edit.
- Click Edit Route
- Make desired changes
- Click Save
How do I change the order of jobs on the route?
While adding or editing an existing route, scroll to the View Jobs and Optimize Route section. Find the job you want to move around and click the grid panel to the left of the job. Once you click, grab and drag the job to the desired spot on the list.
How do I make my route start and end at the same place?
Create a destination on your schedule, then when you create a route you can add it as the start and end destinations for that route.
Does the saved route feature allow me to include jobs that are set for every other week?
No. Saved routes only accommodate jobs that repeat 1x per week every week.
