In this article, you will learn about the Hub function within Onfleet and how to create one. To be able to create a hub, your organization will need to turn on the "Route Optimization" option.
A hub is a central location from which your drivers start and end their routes. A few examples of hubs are your city headquarters, a stocking warehouse, a central kitchen, or the home address of a specific driver.
This article will cover:
Create a Hub
To create a Hub, navigate to the "Team" tab of your organization's Admin settings. Click the "+" on the bottom right corner of the "Hubs" section to define your first Hub. Input a name and valid address, and select "Create Hubs". Alternately, coordinates can be used to create a hub at a location not available through the standard address interface.
Once a hub has been successfully created, you will be able to associate it with a new or existing team.
Edit a Hub
To make changes to a hub, you can do so in the "Team" tab of your dashboard's settings or by double-clicking on the hub icon on your map. This will select the team(s) the hub is associated with and open up an editing modal.
Delete a Hub
To delete a hub, ensure there are no teams assigned to the hub. Once the hub has no teams assigned to it, select the hub you would like to remove from the "Hubs" section of the "Teams" window, then click on the "-" symbol on the bottom right corner of the window.
Note: A hub deletion cannot be reversed.
