Here's your peek behind the curtain. This page describes upcoming features, tools, improvements and functionality that the ServiceCore team is currently discussing, sketching, designing, coding and testing.
We are putting the finishing touches on functionality that will allow you to create roundtrip routes when using route optimization. Today, if your start and end points on a route are the same place, for example your inventory yard or main office location, when you click "Optimize Day", the route that comes back will have the start and end points right next to each other. There is no easy way to create a roundtrip route without setting it up manually (which takes a long time). All that's about to change!
Coming soon, when you click "Optimize Day" for a daily route from the day, week, list, or directions view of the schedule, you will see a popup asking you what you would like to "End Route At", with two choices:
- Last Address
- Any Address
When you choose "Last Address" and the first and last address are the same location, your route will become a round trip route. Or of you want to start routes far away, and then end at your main office or yard, you can do that too by adding your home location as a destination at the end of the route. If you don't have a preferred ending location, choose "Any Address" to end at any address on the route. The choice is yours.
Here is a sneak peek of what's coming:
Service Times for Routing
We are in the initial planning and design phases of new functionality that will allow you to add duration times to jobs and products. This builds into our larger project of showing total service time on daily routes to help you plan routes more effectively based on service time in addition to total miles driven and driving time. Here are a few ideas of what's in store:
