The jobs assigned to the highlighted route can now be identified in the Jobs List. The color used to highlight the route on the map is also used on the circle icon to the left of the name of each job on the route. If you highlight several routes on the map, each different route color is also shown by their respective jobs on the Jobs List.

You can also quickly filter the Jobs List to display only jobs assigned to the routes that are currently shown on the map by opening the filter tool and selecting the Jobs on Drawn Routes option.

 
Hover your mouse over the route highlight to view details of the route. Details shown at the top of the balloon window include the route's driver and vehicle, and its status. In the bottom left of the balloon window, planning details its scheduled start time, duration, distance, details of the shift the route is scheduled to occur within, and any violations the planned route configuration generates are shown.
 
If your subscription includes Verizon Connect® Response™, the bottom right of the balloon shows the actual details of the route if it was scheduled to start in the past, or has already been completed. These details include when the route actually started, and when it ended if it has been completed; the actual duration of the route, and the actual distance that was driven to complete the route.

 

Route statuses that might be shown in the upper right corner of the balloon are:

Route Status

Indicator

Description

Not Started

The vehicle has not left the initial depot location of a route, or been detected as arriving at the first job of the route. Note that if the vehicle has left the depot, but this departure is not detected, the route status might be shown as 'Not Started' until the vehicle is identified as being at a job site.

In Progress

The vehicle has arrived at the any of the jobs on the route and, if at the final depot location, the scheduled time on site has not been exceeded (or the ignition turned off, or the vehicle idled longer than the scheduled time on site).

Completed

The vehicle has completed the final job on the route, and the planned duration of the route has been exceeded, and either the vehicle has stopped at the depot and turned its ignition off or the vehicle has remained idling for longer than the scheduled "return to depot" time on site.

Not Completed

The vehicle has arrived at a job assigned to a different route (thereby starting another route) without completing the final job of the previous route. Alternatively, the scheduled duration of the initial route, plus any additional threshold time given to that route, has been exceeded.

Right-click a route on the map and then click the Change Color option on the menu that opens to change the color of the route highlight. This changes both the color of the route on the map, and the color of the circle icons beside the individual jobs the route contains in the Jobs List.
