The administration dashboard (called dashboard in this document) allows you to control all the functions for creating and managing tasks as well as to manage the dispatch of couriers manually. It is possible to display it in full screen by clicking on the button
Create, assign and edit a task
A task is created by clicking on the button in the
Unassigned section of the dashboard. A popup opens and allows you to configure the task. Three actions are possible for a task:

See the courier connected on the dashboard
When a courier connects to the application and its location is activated, a marker indicating its position is displayed on the dashboard.
Add a courier to the Assigned section.
Adding a courier to the schedule means that he is available to be assigned to tasks and therefore to deliver orders. In order to add a courier to the schedule, click on the
+ button in the
Assign a task to a courier.
If it is possible to assign a courier to a task from the popup for creating or editing a task, it is much more convenient to use the drag’n drop function of the dashboard: drop the task directly in the courier assignment area.
The task appears in the
The dispatcher moves the task to a courier previously added to the schedule.
Get information from an order
As soon as two tasks are assigned to a courier, a delivery is created. Several information is available:
- Estimated duration of delivery;
- The distance to be covered (relative to the route of the route) (“Map” button: Show / hide the delivery route, which is the route proposed to the courier for delivery)
Assign tasks to a courier considering optimization
The dispatcher can optimize the delivery route of the courier by moving the races in the task stack which are assigned to the latter. In order, the first in the stack will be the first route point taken into account and so on until the end of the stack. The dispatcher can move the tasks in the stack to re-organize them.
Create a tag and tag a task
Tags are values that can be assigned to a task in order to sort them in the dashboard. A tag is made up of a title and a color. In order to assign a tag to a task, you must first create the tags that the dispatcher needs.
- Go to the configuration panel, “Tag” section;
- Create a tag by clicking on the “Create a new tag” button;
- Give a name and a color to the tag;
In the dashboard, the dispatcher will find the tags by creating a task or by editing it.
- Click on the button
Add a tag(toothed wheel);
- Add the tag; It is possible to assign multiple tags to a task.
Manipulate the different filters
Different filters are applicable in order to display only certain tasks. It is possible to filter by:
- Task status:
- Completed tasks
- Untagged tasks
- By tag
It is possible to combine the filters.
Dropdown calendar : change the date
To change the day, just use the drop-down calendar to the left of the top bar of the dashboard.

Import button: a window opens to allow you to upload a file. You must at least specify an address for each task, the other columns are optional. To import a file, click on the `Import ‘button located on the top bar of the dashboard.
