This section allows you to predefine a set of timing options in the system.
- Minimum time: Controls the minimum assignment time (T-minus) that the system will recommend for a job scheduled for later. You can see this assignment time in the dispatch console. A dispatcher will still be able to manually choose an earlier assignment time.
- Time per km: The value you set here will be used by the system to calculate the recommended assignment time (T-minus). It will use the distance between the pick-up site of a job to the center of the pick-up area as determined by the company profile.
For example if you set it to 01:00 per km, and the pick up site for a job is 10 km away from the center of the pick-up area, it will recommend that the job be assigned at least 10 minutes before it’s due to start (it will assume that the vehicles in that area will spend approximately 1 minute driving time per kilometer).
- Passenger wait: This can be set according to how long your drivers usually have to wait for their passengers.
- Passenger drop off: This can be set according to how long your drivers usually take to drop off passengers.
