Set Driver's Working Time Window

Last Updated: Feb 25, 2013 11:14AM EST
When building the optimal schedule for your Drivers, the Viamente Route Planner takes into consideration several constraints, among which the Time Window for a Driver's Working Hours.

Click on the tab Working Hours to set the two mandatory times:

  • Start work at: the Viamente Route Planner will suggest a Route which will start not earlier than the time you set here. Sometimes, the suggested Route may start later, but if this happens it is because starting earlier would not provide any better efficiency. Choose one of the times from the dropdown menu or type in your own setting.
 
  • Finish by: the Viamente Route Planner will suggest a Route which will finish not later than the time you set here. Thanks to the optimization process, hopefully the suggested Route will be completed earlier. Choose one of the times from the dropdown menu or type in your own setting. Note: if your Driver is supposed to drive over night and complete the Route the day after, the time set here should refer to the following day: add (+1) to the time definition.



Please note that like all other Driver Settings, the Time Window for a Driver's Working Hours can be assigned/modified from under the tab My Fleet or from under the tab Route Plans (by clicking on the Driver's name in the lower part of the screen).

Remember that if you change a Driver’s settings from the tab My Fleet, the new settings will be applied to all future Route Plans whenever this Driver is utilized. If you only need to modify settings only for a specific Route Plan, you need to do it from the tab Route Plans.
