Wialon tracking system provides an opportunity to track a unit being on route and supposed to visit definite check points in predefined or arbitrary order, at definite time or without any strict schedule.

To understand how routes work, three notions are important: route, schedule, and round.

Route is a set of check points, each characterized by its location on map. The number of check points in a route is unlimited.

Schedule is a timetable which holds time of visit for each point. One route can have many schedules attached to it.

Round is a route, its schedule and assigned unit put together.

So, to configure a route, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a route itself, i.e., mark check point on map.
  2. Create one or more schedules for this route.
  3. Assign rounds manually or adjust automatic creation of rounds.

:!: Note that in order routes to be displayed on the map you should check if the corresponding layer icon in the main menu is active.

When everything is configured properly, you can analyze unit performance on route by various means:

  1. In a specially designed online timeline.
  2. In reports.
  3. Get notifications about round progress.

To open the 'Routes' panel, choose a corresponding name in the top panel or click on the necessary item in the main menu customizer. Here you can configure routes and observe the progress of active rounds.

:!: Routes take their measurement system from User Settings.

The sectors can be resized. To do it, click on the border between them with the left mouse button and, while holding it, move the border to the right/left or up/down. At the same time, if less than 10% of the map is left while expanding the lower sector, the map automatically collapses. To return it, press on the line under the top panel.
