The Route Manifest page will be the main page used by the driver when making deliveries. This will show the complete list of route stops, along with icons denoting which delivery actions are required.
Red icons show actions to be completed, while blue icons denote completed delivery actions. Tapping on a stop entry in this list will open up the Stop Details page, with more detailed information on the
delivery and buttons to perform the various delivery actions related to each stop.
The map icon on top of the page will change the current route list view to
a map view centered on your first route stop. The map view contains
markers for all of the stops on your route, and will display your current location
as well. Tap on any of the stop marker icons to view the stop address. Tap the
stop address to open the route stop details page for that delivery stop.
Users can also set the approximate reporting distance frequency on this page. The default setting is to report the GPS location as an event approximately every 500 meters.
The Gophered platform relies on the app to send changes to the server, which are usually processed within a minute.
If you log out the app immediately after making a change to the manifest state, please wait a bit before logging back in to ensure server has been
updated with the most current state.
