For each dimension that has at least one Geolocation type heading, a new Geolocation menu item is included 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.
For each dimension that has at least two Geolocation type headings, a new View route menu item is included in the pop-up menu for these resources:
Similarly, for each event that has at least two geolocalized resources, this same View route menu item is included in the pop-up menu for the event.
Similarly, when you select several resources that have at least one Geolocation type heading apiece, the same View route menu item is included in the pop-up menu for the resources.
After selecting the route, a new window is displayed:
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 > More tools > Calculating distance.
The result is visible in the event form.
The distance type form heading can be used to calculate and store the distance between two geolocalized resources comprised in 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.
Compaction of events
The compaction functionality minimizes the gaps between end and start dates of events.
The events to compact must be the hourly type.
To compact events depending on the location, select the events to compact > right-click on one of the selected events> More tools > Scheduling.
The following window is displayed:
Specify the following characteristics:
Tour start time
If the tour start time is specified, the first event to compact will start at the time defined in this field.
Otherwise the tour start time will begin at the time of the first event.
Define the alignment value between the events once the calculation has been performed.
Example: If there are 2 events to compact. The first event 1 starts at 08:00 and ends at 10:00. The journey time from event 1 to event 2 is 52 minutes. If the selected alignment value is:
- 0 minute: event 2 will start at 10:52,
- 5 minute: event 2 will start at 10:55,
- 1 hour: event 2 will start at 11:00.
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 with the office’s address in this field.
Location of the tour
Specify the heading that will be used for compaction.
