Planning

Create Runs Based On Fleet and Driver Availability 4004

We’ve added the ability to create empty, availability-based runs on the Advanced Planning screen in Stream. Classed as “Shell Runs”, this option will create a series of runs based on the Vehicles and Drivers available (and the Vehicle Type selected) on a given date. Stream will also use the ‘Usual Driver’ field from the vehicle to assign the drivers to the runs.

You can generate these ready-to-fill runs by going to Actions > Shell Runs in the ‘Runs’ section of the Advanced Planning screen, and once these are created you can add your unplanned orders to the runs as normal.

We’ve added the ability to show/hide the characters that have been typed into the password field in the mobile to help users enter their password correctly before submitting.
