Enhancements in This Release


New: TerritoryPro Drive Time Calculation Setting

The new TP drive time calculation uses sequential order of stops to determine nearest neighbors, versus actual distance (geography). 

With this change comes a new setting in Preferences (Preferences > TerritoryPro > New TerritoryPro Est Time Calculations) that will need to be updated. When Sequence Based Drive Time Calculations is selected, and when initializing a TP Solution, Drive Time Between Stops will be calculated using the new sequenced based calculation.

Issues Resolved in This Release


  • Resolved Stop Time and Layover calculation error that occurred after initialization.
  • Modified UI to increase speed of DR actions and reduce crashes when using large data sets.
  • Corrected issue resulting in Time Zone user fields not exporting in the proper time format when using the UPL File.
  • Fixed issue preventing TBLDRSOLSUMSTATS from populating with subsequent updates/uploads on existing routes.

Additional information is available in the Readme.txt file, copied to your DirectRoute folder (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\TMW Systems Inc\Appian\Direct Route) when updated with any new release download.
