Routes combine time with assets and drivers. A route can have an asset and/or driver associated with it. When routes are added to Ground Traffic Control, a user has the ability to switch, in Settings, to display those routes instead of assets in GPS reports. This is used to run reports on specific routes without knowing which asset is assigned to that route. To access Admin Routes, from the main menu click Manage, then go to System Settings and click Routes.
|Add a Route||Add a single new route or import one or more routes through a CSV.|
|Route||The route name as it will appear throughout the reports in Ground Traffic Control.|
|Assigned Asset||The asset within Ground Traffic Control that is assigned to the route.|
|Assigned Driver||The driver within Ground Traffic Control that is assigned to the route.|
|Start Time||The time the route is scheduled to begin.|
|End Time||The time the route is scheduled to end.|
|Edit||Click on a route’s “Edit” link to edit its details.|
|Delete||Click on a route’s “Delete” link to delete that route.|
Add a Route
Clicking Add a Route will allow manual entry or CSV upload of route information.
|Route Name||(Required) The route name as it will appear throughout the reports in Ground Traffic Control.|
|Start Time||(Required) The time the route is scheduled to begin.|
|End Time||(Required) The time the route is scheduled to end.|
|Assign Route to an Asset||Select the asset that will be used to run the route. Only those already Active in Ground Traffic Control can be selected from the drop-down.|
|Assign Route to a Driver||Select the Driver that will perform the route. Only those already Active in Ground Traffic Control can be selected from the drop-down.|
Once the information has been entered, click Add to save the route. Alternatively, routes can be uploaded using a CSV file. Ensure the file is formatted with the following columns in this order:
|Start Time||Required and must be in HH:MM format.|
|End Time||Required and must be in HH:MM format.|
|Asset ID||Either Asset ID or Driver ID is required.|
|Driver ID||Either Asset ID or Driver ID is required.|
Important: Do not include a header in the CSV file. If, for ease of building the CSV file, you use a header row, ensure it is deleted prior to uploading the file. Once the CSV file is created, select the file and click Load File.
The import results will be returned, showing how many records were imported and how many were not and why. The results of the import will be returned. In this example, one line in the CSV file was not imported because the Asset No. (referred to as a “fleet” in the error) does not exist in Ground Traffic Control. Correct the CSV file and load the file again to load the incorrect lines.
