A ‘Route’ in PestaRoo is the name we give to a cluster of locations in a given area. Routes allow us to group Work Orders by proximity. And, since each page in the Schedule Book can be designated as a specific Route, it is a very effective way to manage your scheduling for the least amount of driving. With the addition of a new field called ‘Preferred Route’ in Locations you can preset your Route by choice . Although most locations naturally fall into a given route by their city or town name, ‘Preferred Route’ allow you to designate a Route different from the assumed town. This is particularly useful for clusters of small towns grouped into a single Route, or large cities where you have several Routes in the same city. Another use for ‘Preferred Route’ is for those customers you want to service while on the way to a more remote Route.
