The Scheduling tab provides the se setup relating to the scheduling of drops with a route:
The Default Country/Region Code is used as the default country/region code for documents where that field is empty. The Country/Region code needs to be filled in one way or another as it helps in determining the Delivery Area (explained later in the user guide) of the order.
The next field to populate is the Default Delivery Area Code. When a document is created it is given a Delivery Area code based on the setup done in this user guide. As your business starts to expand and you deliver further afield it may be the case that you haven’t had the opportunity to setup new delivery areas to cater to the expansion. To help with this you may want to create a default route or a dummy route where orders can be assigned to and easily identified in the Shipment Managements Route screen to be dealt with later.
For example, create a Delivery Route called 'Unassigned' for customers that aren’t currently assigned to a specific Delivery Area Code.
The final field on the Scheduling tab is Scheduling Time Period, this is the Period for which the document will be listed on the Shipment Management Route screen, i.e. how far ahead do you want to plan. Shipment Management Routes will be created for Orders with a shipment date within the Scheduling Time Period. This field requires you input the period as a Date Formula i.e. 1M = 1 Month
