* Priority to – If there are orders with disputable data (for example: the customer addresses of two orders are far from each other, but the delivery time is set to the same), the first ones in the route will be those that are marked as priority.
* Priority from – If there are orders with disputable data (for example: the pickup addresses of several orders, different branches, one of them is marked as a priority and the starting point (i.e. start from) from another branch), the beginning of the route is lined up from the branch that was marked as a priority.
Also, when you adding an order to a new customer, you need to set parameters such as name, surname, mobile of customer and a short description of the product in the ‘Task description’. Parameters of product description and mobile of customer are mandatory.
After filling all the fields, in the lower right corner you can click the ‘Save’ button or ‘Publish’ button to create the task. In the event that in the future these tasks will be used in optimization, they need to be created by clicking only on the ‘Save’ button, since only the saved tasks can be optimized. Optimization of orders is needed to automatically build the most convenient route for the carrier, considering all the details. ‘Publish’ is used if there is a need to perform single orders that will not be included in the route. All orders that are created with the ‘Publish’ button automatically appear in the application from the carrier.
After saving the tasks, they fall into the general list.
