Using the GPS features within AroFlo's calendar, you can create an efficient job run for your resources by scheduling tasks within the same area, or route urgent jobs to the nearest available resource.

Find nearest task 

Once you have scheduled the first task of the day to a resource, you can quickly find and schedule the next nearest task.

  1. Go to the Calendar.
  2. Use an existing task schedule, or schedule a task.
  3. Hover your mouse over the task schedule, then click (building icon).
  4. You should now see a list of all current tasks sorted by distance.

    Use the search boxes at the top to filter the list. Columns can be added or removed from this list view by clicking  (Columns icon).

    Click on the address at the top of the Search Tasks window to be taken to the map. From there, you can double click on a task (red icon) to assign it to the current resource. The amount of time blocked out for the task on the resource's calendar is set in the Calendar General Settings.

Find nearest resource

If a resource is unable to attend a job or you have an urgent call out, you can quickly find and schedule the nearest available resource.
