ServiceCore offers you the ability to see each day's assigned and unassigned jobs on a single map. Use this feature to make better decisions on how to split jobs and route your drivers. This map view helps prevent backtracking on routes and overlapping routes between drivers. Also, this view allows you to see which route or driver is best suited to take on unassigned jobs. And if your company has multiple dispatchers, you can control which driver's jobs appear on the map, so you can focus on specific jobs, rather than having to sort through all jobs for all dispatchers in your company.
Before You Start
Here are a few things to keep in mind before you view all jobs for a day on the schedule map:
- Jobs shown on the map are for one day at a time
- You must have jobs created for the date you're looking at on the map in order for pins to appear on the map
- Unassigned jobs can be toggled on and off to hide or show them on the map
- Routes must have at least three stops in order to use route optimization
- All job sites and destinations require a valid latitude and longitude in order to show up on the map
- The speed at which the map loads will depend on factors like: how many job pins are on the map, your internet connection speed, and the complexity of daily routes that appear on the map
