Allow mixed territories when planning routes with pre-defined territories

Mixed territories is a situation where the user plans a list with pre-defined territories and allows some deviation from his original territory design.
This deviation is influenced by distance calculation and is done to better optimize the routes.

Mixed territories will appear in 2 scenarios:

  1. When the user allows it by checking the “Allow mixed territories” box.
    “Allow mixed territories” check box is located under “Multi-Routes-Parameters” and is available in Advanced Mode.
    Allow Mixed Territories
  2. When the user sets Multi-Routes-Parameters that support mixed territories.
    For example – if the Max. Route Duration doesn’t allow the optimization process to include all addresses within the same territory,
    the next route will include addresses from the previous territory.
    Another example – if the Max. Stops per Route is smaller than the number of addresses with the same territory,
    the next route will have addresses with the previous territory.

To avoid Mixed territories you have 2 options:

  • Uncheck the “Allow mixed territories”.
  • Set different Multi-Routes-Parameters.
  • These two options will result in separate routes, for every group of territories.
    When our route planner will have difficulties keeping the territories separated considering all parameters, it will show a notification
    offering to change the parameters.
    When you see this message, you should click continue and modify the multi-routes parameters that you set.
