In iOn, a route isn't defined as you might think it would be: 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). The Admin - Routes screen is where your organization's iOn administrator will add new routes and edit or delete existing ones. After you create a route, you can associate it to a vehicle asset its attribute applies to (on the Admin - Assets screen).


To view your routes, follow these steps:


  1. In the sidebar menu on the left, click .
     
  2. Click Routes on the flyout menu that appears.
     
    The Admin - Routes screen will appear.
       
    By default, your routes are listed by name in ascending order (from A to Z).
     
  3. If you want to see routes in subgroups of the one you have selected in the Group Chooser, make sure that View Subgroups is selected at the bottom of the screen.
     
  4. You can scroll down the grid to see all the routes you have available.
     
  5. To find a particular route, you can sort or filter the Name column, as shown in Sorting and Filtering Column Data.
     
  6. You can add or remove columns by clicking at the top right of the grid and following the steps in Customizing Displayed Columns.
     
  7. If you don't have iOn save grid modifications you make automatically for all the iOn screens (if the Automatically Save Grid Settings toggle in the Preferences area of My Profile is deselected — see Viewing Your Profile and Setting Your Preferences), you can save any layout changes you've made to the Admin - Routes screen by clicking . (If you haven't made any layout updates you can save, will be above the grid instead.) See Saving Grid Changes for an Individual Screen for more details.
     
    Here is an explanation of the column headers:
     
    • Group: The name of the fleet group the route belongs to.
       
    • Name: The route identifier, which can be words, numbers, or a combination of both.
       
    • Category: The grouping to which you've assigned the route (if your organization has designated route categories).
       
    • Description: An explanation of what the route does.
       
    • Inheritable: Whether the route can also 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).
       
    • Status: The route's current state in the database, such as Enabled.
      Note: If the Status is set to Disabled or Suspended, the route will be unable to be assigned to a vehicle asset.
  8. Just below the grid are icons that enable you to navigate through the pages of data, if needed. See Paging Options for an explanation of these.
