USE

View location

For each dimension that has at least one Geolocation type of heading, a new Geolocation menu item is displayed in the pop-up menu:

  • of its resources,

  • and of events that have at least one such geolocalized resource.

After selecting the heading a new window is displayed:

This window enables you to view the location of the selected resource or event.

If several resources or events are selected, several locations appear on the same map.

View routing

For each dimension that has at least two Geolocation headings, a new View routing menu item is displayed in the pop-up menu for its resources.

Similarly, for each event that has at least two geolocalized resources, this same View routing menu item is displayed in the event’s pop-up menu.

After selecting the routing, a new window is displayed:

This window enables you to view the routing between the two selected points.

Assignment

The Geolocation module provides a distance calculation that gives you two new criteria to assist with assignment:

  • Calculation of distances,

  • Localization period.

See Assignment according to distance

Calculate the distance

You can calculate the distance between 2 headings defined when configuring the Distance type heading.

To do so, right-click on the event > Geolocation > Calculate remotely > Choose the required Distance heading.

The following window opens during calculation if calculation takes a certain time.

The result is visible in the event form.

Distance

The distance type of form heading makes it possible to calculate and store the distance between two geolocalized resources comprised within an event.

Example: Calculate the distance traveled between the office and the customer for a work event.

You can then use the result in different VISUAL PLANNING functionalities.

see Distance type heading

Scheduling of events

The scheduling functionality minimizes the gaps between end and start dates of events.

Caution

The events that are scheduled must be the hourly type.

To schedule events according to location, select the events to schedule > right-click on one of the selected events > Geolocation > Scheduling.

The following window is displayed:

Specify the following characteristics:

Tour start time

If the tour start time is specified, the first event to schedule will start at the time defined in this field.

Otherwise the tour start time will begin at the time of the first event.

Alignment

Define the alignment value between the events once the calculation has been performed.

Example: If there are 2 events to schedule. The first event event 1 starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m.. The journey time from event 1 to event 2 is 52 minutes. If the chosen alignment value is:

  • 0 minute: event 2 will start at 10.52 a.m.,

  • 5 minutes: event 2 will start at 10.55 a.m.,

  • 1 hour: event 2 will start at 11 a.m.,

Location of departure

If this field is defined, the calculation will start at the location defined in this field. Otherwise, the location of departure will be the location of the first event.

Example: If the location of departure is your office, you must select the heading comprising the office’s address in this field.

Location of the tour

Specify the heading that will be used for scheduling.
