Donna explains the two ways to split a job that is too large to fit on a single trip in this two minute quick tip video.

Hi! I’m Donna and today I have a quick tip on splitting jobs.

Sometimes a job will be entered into Strategic Movements that cannot be assigned to a single vehicle. Since route planning is all about making sure everything fits, sometimes it is necessary to split a job.

Maybe a limit like cube or weight will be exceeded or maybe more than one type of product will need to be delivered and it will take two different types of delivery vehicles to do this.

There are two ways to split jobs.

First, let’s take a look at splitting a job from the Plans screen before it’s placed on the Dispatch Board.

Within a plan you can select a job and then click on the Split link.

Here you will see the job as it was entered with the cube and weight values, work time, and any user data.

Enter the amount or value to be retained on the original job in the Retain column and the amount or value to be placed into the new job in the Split column.

Then click the Save button and you will see a new job in the list.

If the job is shown on the Dispatch Board during route planning, the second way of splitting is used.

Click on the hamburger menu icon for the job and select Split Job.

Here you can also allocate cube and weight values, change the work time, or change any user data fields.

Click the OK button to split the job and the newly created job will appear at the top of the unassigned jobs list.

The only thing to remember is that a job must be unassigned to split. If a job is assigned to a trip, unassign it first, and then split.

Large job? No problem.

Thanks for watching. Hope to see you again soon.
