How do I use Optimization ?

Optimization in vWork needs the following.

  • An Enterprise vWork plan.
  • User permissions to use optimization.
  • Some jobs with at least one geo-coded step address

2. Choose your required date/time range for the jobs to be started and completed in.


3. Choose your jobs and workers by:

- clicking on them on the map.
- or use the polygon selection tool.  then double click to close the polygon.

- or from the  button on the right of the page.

4. Your selections for jobs and workers will show up in the information pane on the right.

5. Then add a start location for your workers if needed. Then click 'Run Optimization'
