In this version, we have added a new Units page, improved the feature of moving orders from one route to another, redesigned the tables on the Planning, Routes, and Templates pages, and made some other changes.
The "Units" page
On the Units page, you can see a list of all the available units, edit some of their properties (Name, Carrying capacity, Volume), and specify the usage cost for each unit per 1 km, per 1 hour, per 1 order, and per vehicle departure. These cost values are used to calculate the route cost.
In the unit table, the columns are adjusted automatically according to the width of the content.
Now, when moving orders from one route to another, the orders in both routes are automatically arranged in the most efficient sequence.
Now moving orders in the table has become more convenient. The areas to which you can move an order are highlighted in orange. If the table doesn't fit on the screen, the page scrolls automatically when you point to the upper or lower edge of the table.
In the tables of the Planning, Routes, and Templates pages, we have redesigned the buttons, expanded the lines, highlighted a line over which the cursor is pointed, and improved performance.
We have added the Recalculate without restrictions option (the icon ) to the third stage of planning. You can use it to recreate a route without taking into account the configured restrictions. The route will contain all its orders arranged in the most convenient sequence for their visit.
In the order card, an icon for deleting the order has appeared.
We hope you will find these new features interesting and useful!

In the order creation window, notification methods are displayed in a separate section of the same name now.

New design of the settings and warehouse cards
We have redesigned the settings. Now the Save and Cancel buttons are shown only when there are changes.
Also, warnings are displayed on the setting tabs if incorrect data is specified or the required fields are not filled in.
We have made the cards on the Warehouses tab more compact. Now all the specified parameters are displayed as icons. We have also added a dynamic search by parameters for warehouses.
Order confirmation upon attaching a file with a signature
On the Generaltab of the settings, we have created the Order fulfilment requirements section, to which we have moved the Not to confirm orders outside the radius option and have added a new one: Not to confirm orders without signature. If it is enabled, the driver can confirm an order only after attaching a file with a signature.
Order rejection reasons
On the General tab of the settings, we have created the Order rejection reasons section where you can specify the reasons for rejecting orders or create a list of the required reasons using the Autocomplete button.
The specified reasons are shown in the mobile application on the driver's device.
New capabilities of the Google routing service
We have improved the Distribution optimization section on the Planning tab. Now you can specify the traffic model if the With traffic option is selected in the route parameters. Select one of the available models: balanced, optimistic, pessimistic. If you select the Pessimistic model, an additional time based on Google statistics is provided to fulfil the route. If the driver often arrives earlier, you can select the Optimistic model.
In addition, you can specify which parts of the road (toll roads, highways, ferries) should be avoided when planning routes.

In the new version of Logistics, we have added the ability to move orders from one route to another using the map, improved the Take into account the location of units option, added the Route cost column to the report, and updated the design of the notification window.
Moving orders on the map
We have added the Move button to the order cards at the third stage of planning. Click on this button and select a route to which you want to move the order by clicking on it on the map.
The improved "Take into account the location of units" option
If the Take into account the location of units option is enabled, the route from the unit to the first point is displayed on the map when creating a route. In addition, the estimated arrival time and the distance from the unit to the first point are calculated and displayed in the table.
The "Route cost" column
We have added the Route cost column to the reports on routes and reports on routes and orders. The column shows the route cost values that are calculated during the optimization if the corresponding parameters are indicated in the settings of the Route cost calculation section.
New design of the notification window
We have improved the design of the Notifications window. Now it is larger and you can mark all notifications as read. We have also improved the displaying of unread messages and added the Show button. We have updated the style of the pop-up notifications about errors and completed actions.
The new version of the application includes the following changes:
ability to move orders from one route to another using the map;

new design of the notification window.
In the new version of Logistics, we have added the ability to select the application language and collapse the navigation bar, optimized help tips, and created the What's new? window so that you can learn about the latest updates in time.
Language selection and help tips
Previously, the application language depended on the language selected in the user settings in Wialon. Now you can change it on the General tab of the application settings.
We have also improved the logic for displaying help tips. Now you can enable help tips (in the application settings) or disable them (in the settings or in the help tip itself) at any time.
Important information doesn’t fit on the screen? Now you can collapse the navigation bar and see more information both on the map and in the table.
"What's new?" window
Can’t keep up with new Logistics updates? Then you will like the What's New? window. Thanks to it, you won’t miss a single update, even if you don’t have time to follow the news in our blog or forum.
The window displays up to five latest news. To navigate between them, use the arrows to the right and left of the update date.
Click on the Learn more button to read more about the new features in our new help center, or go to the forum to discuss them because your feedback helps us to improve.
You can open the window with updates at any time by selecting What’s new? in the user menu.

In the new application version, we are glad to present you with an improved design of the navigation bar and tables.
The filter and the search have been moved from the navigation bar to the toolbar above the tables on the Planning, Templates, Routes, Reports, and Chat pages. The search is now also available at the third stage of planning and in reports.
At the first and second stages of planning, you can reset the filter parameters to the default ones.
Besides, we have made improvements to the routes created from templates: now their cost is also calculated if its calculation parameters are specified on the Planning tab of the settings.
