3. If required, you can add advanced optimization settings to your workers / users.

4. If required you can also set time windows in your jobs. For example you may have jobs that can only be delivered on a Sunday afternoon. You can set this in the job.

  • Optionally set your jobs capacity and/or start time window as shown below:

5. Make sure your jobs to be optimized have geo coded step locations.
