Sending Directions to Your Driver

 

Its often easier to see where you’re drivers are than them trying to work out their location from a small screen or from road signs alone.

You might also need to send a new route to a driver if a new job has come in.

With AutoAlert this is easily done in three quick steps.

  1. Get Directions
  2. Choose your drivers number
  3. Send the message

 

1. Get Directions

Simply click on your driver on the radar screen to show the pop up.

3. Send Directions by Instant Message

Alternatively, you can copy the message into an AutoAlert instant message and send it via instant message instead. If you’re driver is signed into the AutoAlert mobile site, then they can click on their message to get taken to Google maps.
