guide job groups jobs groups optimize routes ordered route group routing snow routes ordered routes Creating Job Groups - Standard & Route

Job Groups are used to link jobs together, we have two types of Job Groups:

Standard Job Groups - Are a list of jobs together for Tracking or Reporting purposes.

    1. Tracking - Jobs can be added to a group to monitor last visit status using our Live Tracking.  For more information on our Live Tracking, click HERE!
    2. Reporting - Most LMN reports offer the option to report by Job Group.  That way, you can pull reports on the group of jobs specifically (ie. "Monthly Billing Customers" or "Monday Mowing Jobs").

Ordered/Route Job Groups - Are a list of jobs together, which can be optimized in the most efficient driving route.

  • Routing - Ordered/Route Job Groups are great for snow routes since they do not need to be scheduled.

To optimize your Job Group

    1. To re-organize the order of the Jobsites MANUALLY, within the Jobsites in the Group window, click on the 3 lines to the left of the job name and drag it to re order.
    2. To re-organize the order of the Jobsites using our Optimization Tool, click Map Route
    3. The Optimize Routes screen will appear. Based on the Start/End addresses, the tool will find the most efficient route for all of your Jobsites entered on the screen before. Select Optimize to run the tool.
      NOTE: all of your jobsite addresses have to be 100% accurate in order for the Optimize Tool to work. If even one jobsite address is incorrect or missing data, the Tool will not optimize at all.
