How to upload and dispatch jobs
Once the shift is created and jobs are uploaded to the shift, click on "Manage jobs" icon on the right of the shift row.
You will then see all your uploaded jobs on a map view in "Red" colour. Colours are important. If they are in bright red colour, it means they have not been grouped or routed. Jobs need to be grouped first before assigning to drivers.
There are 2 ways to select jobs that you would like to group them into a run:
Hold "SHIFT" key on your keyboard, and click job by job on the map that you would like to group into a run. The selected job icons will turn bigger after selection. There is also an indicator showing how many jobs are selected on the top of the screen.
Hold "SHIFT" key on your keyboard, use your mouse to select jobs in an area. After releasing the mouse, all jobs in the selected areas are selected, icons are turned bigger.
Once the jobs are selected, click on "Create a new run" icon on the top of the screen. Wait for it complete. Jobs will turn into a different colour once done.
There are a few other icons on the top of the screen for you to do many other things, including "Move to another shift", "Remove from run" and "Move to another Run". Free feel to try them out.
If you wish to de-select a job, do the same as you do when selecting jobs. Hold the "SHIFT" key and and select the ones you like to exclude.
That is it! Next step is for your to assign the runs to your drivers. Your drivers will then be able to receive the manifest and route for making the deliveries.
