This week we've made the assignment suggestions in Dispatching even more helpful! Assignment suggestions can now take Google's real-time traffic into consideration when generating the Travel Time and ETA which will help RoutingBox more accurately suggest the best driver for the trip!

Assignment suggestions can be accessed by right-clicking on any blank assignment drop-down in the Dispatching screen. RoutingBox will then suggest the best match for this trip based on time and location.
