There is also a column for Estimated Distance for the delivery and how many Orders each driver is assigned.
We are going to assign Mary Jane to this order by clicking Assign Driver.
Packing an Order in the shop
Another window will populate to Re-Assign Employee. You will see the driver's name defaulted.
Packed By (optional) - Packing an Order is the process of getting the ordered products ready to sell and packed into their packaging material in order to deliver to the customer.
- If this is Pizza Delivery Style then you more than likely have someone packing your orders before they leave the shop. If orders get packed in the shop before leaving, select the person who packed the order.
- If this is an Ice Cream Truck model then, you will be packing the orders in the field as the orders come in.
- We are leaving this Unassigned as it will be Packed by the driver in the field.
Override Inventory (optional), make sure to select the correct inventory this is being sold from.
Once the order is assigned, the order will proceed to In Progress.
Now the driver will be able to see this Order as a Task in the App as well.
