To edit the properties of an individual route in your iOn account, follow these steps:

Note: Remember, in iOn, a route isn't a path that a vehicle is assigned to follow (a specific itinerary of stops along a course); rather, an iOn route is an attribute you can define to use as a filter (such as snow routes in a certain area).

Note: To edit several routes at once, follow the steps in Importing Routes, uploading a new routes.xlsx file with the same route names. (The newly imported file will overwrite your earlier information.)


For an explanation of the features of the Admin - Routes screen, go to Navigating the Admin - Routes Screen.

  1. Click  >> Admin >> Routes.
    The Admin - Routes screen will appear and display the Manage Routes list.
  2. If the route is in a subgroup of the one you have selected in the Group Chooser, click Include Subgroups at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Scroll down to the route you need to modify or filter the Name column to find it. (See Sorting and Filtering Column Data if needed.)
  4. In the row of the route, click  under Actions.
    Note: Alternatively, you can select the route's check box and then click at the bottom of the screen. You actually can edit multiple routes this way (by selecting all of their check boxes before clicking ), but you can only edit fields they have in common, such as their group assignment or route category.
    The Edit Route Name dialog box will appear.
  5. To change the name of the route, select the text in the Name field and type the new one.
  6. If you would like to place the route in a different group, click the Group drop-down arrow and select the new group from the list.
    Note: If you would like to search for the group, you can click  to the right of the current group's name, type your search criteria, and then choose from the drop-down list.
  7. Normally, you will leave the Status field set to Enabled.
    Note: If you don't want the route to be used for a temporary period of time, you can click this drop-down arrow and select Disabled or Suspended. Either option will make the route unable to be assigned to a vehicle asset.
  8. If your organization has created route categories, you can change the route's by clicking the Route Category drop-down arrow and selecting the category the route belongs to.
    Note: The categories listed will be those that are available for the group the route is assigned to.
  9. You can modify the route's type by clicking the Route Type drop-down arrow and selecting its new type.

    This field may be grayed out, if route types haven't been added for your organization yet.
  10. To edit the description of the route, select the current value in the Description field and type the new text.
  11. To change whether the route can be applied to subgroups of the group it is assigned to (so the subgroups, or child groups, can inherit the route from the parent group), click Inheritable. (Deselected [] means the route can only be associated to vehicles in the same group; selected [] means the route is inheritable.)
  12. Click Save.
    Your edits will appear in the Manage Routes grid.

Note: To see how to assign the route to a vehicle its attribute applies to, go to Assigning an Operator and a Route to an Asset.
