Enhancements in This Release

Added new Sync Route Book behavior to the 'Sync Route Book' button in the Route Book side menu. When the button is selected (turned on) and the routing solution is saved and closed, DirectRoute will save the setting and select it by default the next time the solution is opened. 

Added new icons/extended actions to the File menu (File>New) to save time and reduce the number of steps necessary to perform frequent or daily actions. Select any of the new icons for Route, Stop, Truck, or Distance File to create or open a file. If Route is selected, additional icons/options are available to select (Regular, Priority Routing, Selective Routing, or Algorithm API.)

Added a new 'hot' button to save time and steps after changes are made to a solution. Select File>Save and Reload to close all files (Route Book, Stop, Truck, and Distance) and re-initialize the solution; DirectRoute will reopen the re-initialized solution and all changes that were made will be reflected. (Also available in TerritoryPro.)

Updated the Google Geocode fallback options in File>Preferences>Geocode Options>Fallback to secondary geocoding after to reflect newer georesults. 

  • Old: Always, Never, Level 1, and Level 2 
  • New: Always, Never, Exact, Good, Uncertain, Zip, and Failed

Modified the Add New Day function (TerritoryPro>Add New Day). When adding a new day to a current solution, you can choose any number listed in the New Day drop-down box or you can now type any number, including a non-sequential number.

Added additional functionality to TerritoryPro>Select Day Color. Besides changing color selection for existing days, you can now also add a new day from the Day colors box. Select the 'Add Day' button and type any number, including a non-sequential number.
