The Team RoadWarrior planner view is the heart of our online route planner. This is where you add stops to your route, view and plan out your route on the map, and optimize your route.
There are a number of differences between the Team web planner and the planner in the app.
The biggest difference is the ability to have multiple open routes at once - open routes will be shown as tabs across the top of the planner. You can switch rapidly between routes by tapping on a tab, and can close a route by tapping the [x] on the right of the tap, just like your web browser.
Also note that if a driver is assigned to a route, we show a small thumbnail of their picture in the tab.
View Driver Location
If you have driver accounts assigned to active routes (meaning a route that is currently being run), you will see a truck icon on the map representing the rough location of that driver. Driver location is updated every few minutes, and only when the Road Warrior app is open. If you are viewing the route that a driver is currently running, the truck icon will be colored, otherwise it will be grayscale.
You have a few ways to add stops to a route. The first is to search for a stop using the search box. Type in an address, and then select from the drop down options to add that location to your route. Alternatively, you can also select to add that location as a favorite, or the starting location of your route.
To add stops from favorites, you can multiselect favorites from the list (tap the circle icon on the left of an item to enter selection mode) and then tap "Add to Route" at the top.
Get Route and Optimizing
A new update is the introduction of the Get Route dialog. This dialog is for when you want to optimize your route. You can update route attributes quickly such as start location and time, as well as optimization type and round trip among others.
Manual reordering can also be done in this dialog by tapping the "Manual Order" button in the upper right corner and then dragging stops to your preferred order.
After your route is ready to go, click Optimize or Calculate (for manual ordered routes) at the bottom of the dialog to have Road Warrior optimize your route.
Filtering and Sorting Locations
You can filter and sort your stops and favorites - this is often useful if you have a lot of locations and need to narrow down the ones you are seeing.
Tapping the filter button will open a panel showing a variety of different filtering options. You can use the filter text box to search for a stop or favorite by name, or use the deeper stop and favorite options to filter by status, distance, or hashtag.
