Run Sheets are used to allocate Consignments to Drivers. Consignments can be allocated to drivers through a Run Sheet or straight from Delivery Runs.
Run Sheets provide a lot of functionality such as the ability to easily change days, driver, or reorder jobs within the Run Sheet (which is then shown in-order on the Mobile App

Creating Run Sheets
There are multiple ways in which Run Sheets can be created, and which method you use will depend on the way in which you allocate consignments within the system.
Bulk Allocation is a popular method of allocation when working with over 100 consignments per day.
Allocating smaller quantities if often easier by working directly from within the Delivery Runs list.
When creating a Run Sheet, CartonCloud provides you with the option to either create a new run sheet, or allocate to an existing Run Sheet.
Changing the date of the run sheet will automatically update the list of available Run Sheets for that day. Naming the Run Sheet, or Switching Drivers will also automatically filter the list of Existing Run Sheets to help you quickly find existing run sheets to allocate Consignments to.
Run sheet Configuration
Run sheets can be set to order by Consignment or by Address. These settings can be found in Organisational settings under the transport tab.
To utilise the address sort order the Run sheet configuration must be set to Order Run Sheet By Addresses.
Reordering Consignments on a Run Sheet
From within a Run sheet, simply click on the "Map" button to see all Consignments on the Run Sheet.
Consignments on the Run Sheet can then be reordered by simply clicking and dragging them up and down.
The numbers on the Map Markers show the order in which the Consignments appear on the list.
Select Multiple Jobs at Once
If you need to change multiple jobs at the same time, hold Ctrl while you click on the Consignments to select multiple, then drag them wherever you want.
If you want to select a range of jobs, hold Shift.
When you're done, don't forget to press 'Save Consignment Order'.
Time Saving Tip
If you preorder your drivers runs, or preload their trucks, you'll need fine-grain control over the order of their consignments.
