New Trip Setup Interface
As summer comes to an end, we are shifting into high gear with improvements to the LoadPanel interface and additional new features. The trip creation and setup window has been transformed into an easy-to-use tool allowing dispatchers to visualize the trip on a map, calculate the CPM, and estimate the travel time.
The Add Stop button facilitates quick trip planning, giving dispatchers the option to enter a city and state or just a zip code. Stop options include Current Location, Pick, Drop, and Deadhead. The Recalculate button computes the distance between the entered locations and displays the mileage and the resultant Trip CPM based on the entered Rate.
Further refinement of the travel route can be done by simply dragging waypoints on the displayed Google map. For ease of use, the map can be expanded to full screen using the button in the upper-right hand corner. Traffic information is overlaid for additional awareness and decision making. Switching to satellite or street view can assist with critical last-mile navigation.
Additional Trip Information
A new trip can be created without filling out additional date or address information. For those who choose to do so, trip information can be added by clicking the Edit icon for the specific stop. Further updating and editing of the stop information can be done through the primary trip page interface.
Did You Know About the Columns Button on the Trips page?
The default Trips view has a number of hidden columns that some may find useful. Recent updates have expanded the available choices to include more than 20 column options!
