STEP 3. Create your routes.

Set up you routes. Click on the "Route" section that runs along the green bar at the left of the screen.

Remember: The order in which your customers are set in the Route page is the order they are printed out in your daily job schedules. Order the customers as if you were going to visit one after the other straight through the entire route. Normally you will have 1 route per crew.

Make sure you are on the tab "Route List."

Click the "New" button.
