Basic principles

The Fulfilment page allows you to track route fulfilment in real time (with a manual refresh option) and geolocate mobile resources using information uploaded from the field by TourSolver mobile app users as they complete their visits.

You can monitor the status of each visit as it is completed via the Fulfilment page. The visit status changes as and when actions are performed in TourSolver or in the mobile app, as described in the diagram below:

 Actions possible in TourSolver mobile app will depend on the mobile app configuration defined in TourSolver.

Pre-requirements

Fulfilment tracking is only deliverable if the following conditions are met:

  • Mobile users have been created in TourSolver via the My resources page > Find out more
  • Users have been sent their identifier/password to allow them to connect > Find out more
  • The optimized simulation has been validated so it is accessible to all mobile app users > Find out more
  • Mobile resources assigned to fulfil routes have installed TourSolver mobile app and have logged in to the app using their identifier/password > Find out more
  • The mobile app has been configured for all users from TourSolver (optional). > Find out more

The Fulfilment page is divided into two sections:

  • At the top, the navigation bar and tools
  • Below, the list of route stops

Utilisation

Navigation bar and tools

Fulfilment views

Choose from several possible fulfilment tracking views for one or several routes in the tool bar at the top left of the screen:

  • List view (enabled by default) shows the list of visits in chronological order
  • Map view shows the route and the resource’s tracking
  • Table view shows visits according to their fulfilment status
  • Planning view shows visits according to their fulfilment status
  • Other views will become available shortly…

Navigating in routes

The bar at the top of the page allows you to navigate in routes to select the user of the mobile app and a date as follows:

  • In the left-hand part, see all routes or select the route by mobile app user from the list of mobile app users displayed
  • In the right-hand part, select the route according to date from the days displayed, or select all routes for a particular day

Combining the two filters, you can display:

  • all routes for a particular day, or
  • the route for a particular resource and day.

Toolbar

The toolbar allows you to:

  • To force data refresh in real time (times and fulfilment status, signature and tracking)
  • Display the legend for the status of visits uploaded from the field via the TourSolver mobile app: this function displays the list of possible statuses and their meaning, along with the current time indicator that displays when a route for the current day is consulted.
  • Customize the fields to display in the list of visits in List view: this function opens a configuration window for the fields displayed and available fields, and their display order in the list.
  • Export fulfilment data displayed in List view in the list of visits in Microsoft Excel (*.xlsx) format

Exporting fulfilment data

The last button in the toolbar enables export of a Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) format file containing all data visible in the fulfilment list at the time of the export. The user can customise which fields are displayed in this view, and also customise which fulfilment fields to export.

Adding a single visit

The Adding a single visit option allows you to add an unplanned visit following the sending and validation stage. There are 3 steps to adding a visit:

  • Create the visit: entering a name, visit duration and visit address
  • Visit report: fill in a visit report
  • Fulfilment: assigned resource, date, visit start time

The manually added visit is positioned in the route of the chosen resource at the time indicated. This addition does not lead to a recalculation of the route optimization and does not displace any of the follow-on visits as a result.


Fulfilment listing

The list of visits shows the route selected, as well as information related to its fulfilment:

  • The Start column displays the start time uploaded when the TourSolver mobile app user declares the start of the visit via the Begin action
  • The End column displays the completion time uploaded when the TourSolver mobile app user records the end of the visit via the Completed action
  • The visit Status column is updated according to which actions available in TourSolver mobile app are in progress or completed, as summarised in the diagram shown above in this article.

Delays or late arrivals are handled via the display of a warning bar and visits that might be impacted by any delays to schedule will be colored in red. A time line (in red) indicates past or future events.


Consulting information relating to a visit

Information about a visit can be consulted at any time by clicking in the list on the corresponding line. A visit form then displays and gives details sorted according to the following themes:

  • Fulfilment: visit completion times, the visit status and any signature taken, provided this option is enabled
  • Report: information relating to the customised visit report
  • Customer: these information items identify the customer, address, geographic coordinates, and map location
  • Constraints: imported fields and fields related to TourSolver constraints

Map legend

The legend icon provides access to colour coding conventions:

  • Fulfilment status: map pin colour represents fulfilment status
  • Tracking status: vehicle pin colour tracked in the map (if the current map is displayed and tracking is activated) represents the age of the tracking or signal if the user has activated Privacy mode
  • Fulfilment times: pane colour identifies the visit start and end times declared by the mobile app user

Map options

The configuration icon opens the window for Map options.

Options available are as follows:

  • Resources name display: when this option is enabled, if the Map view is configured to display All routes for a particular date, the name of each resource displays below their last known map position (map pin icon varies according to the status of the last known position)
  • History of the geolocation data: available in the PREMIUM version of TourSolver, this option, when enabled provides a map display with geolocation history collected from the TourSolver mobile app from the start of the day displayed. The proposed journey plot for the optimized route can then be compared in the map with the real plot, reconstituted to link up the geolocation points collected.

 Available in the PREMIUM version of TourSolver. Contact your technical sales team for more information. At the time of writing, this functionality does not yet handle time zone changes.
