TABULAR DATA JOIN

The new tabular data join feature makes it possible to augment map layers like zip-codes or counties with business data (sales, counts, etc.) so that you can filter and classify the joined territory and business data.

The following video demonstrates joining tabular data:

SCHEDULE PARTITIONING

This is an enhancement to our partitioning support allowing users to schedule visits (stops) at clients based on a schedule frequency in weeks. If your data has a schedule frequency column, then the partitioning feature can create partitions across some schedule period. If for example you are supposed to visit a sight every two weeks and you are creating an eight-week schedule, then you’d expect the site to appear in four partitions (clusters) spaced out every two weeks.

The following video demonstrates our new scheduling feature:

SUPPORT FOR AUTOMATIC HOLE REMOVAL IN MARKUP-BUILDER

There is a new checkbox in the markup-builder to automatically remove holes in territories. If you are building you data from zip codes and you are missing zips in a given territory, then your territory polygons will have holes in them. If you are missing a lot of zip records, then the territory can look messy and will perform poorly in shape statistics.

CTRL-CLICK MARKUP ITEM IN LIST

Ctrl-click on territories in the markup list for those built with the markup-builder and instantly re-populate the data-grid with source components. This makes it easy to load the data-grid with the zips or counties that make up your territories so you can do realignments.
