Radius using Scheduling Assistant

Posted on by 5

hi there,

I am looking for the definition of 'Radius' on the scheduling assistant filter.  My first assumption is the radius is 'as the crow flies' however testing appears to define this as 'driving distance'.

This makes a huge difference for me as driving times may vary from 2 to 5+ hours on a 100 mile 'radius' 

Looking to understand deeply what this is.

I believe this should be labelled 'driving distance max' as it is only a filter on the resulting distance between the resource and the previous work order (for example)

thanks !

    Hi there,

    This Radius is indeed a driving distance using the Bing Maps. If you wish to use it regularly and integrate it within the CRM in terms of miles or kilometers, explore Maplytics! It is a certified geo-location application on the Microsoft AppSource that empowers users with location intelligence through optimized routing, balanced territory creation, automated appointment scheduling, and more!
     
    Thanks,
    Sam

    Yes this is driving distance using Bing Maps. It’s finding resources within that mile radius drive.
