Proximity Clustering is a setting that is "hidden" in the software that will allow the planner to group Orders together that within a defined amount of distance (meters/yards).
The defined clustering radii that can be set are:
Note: "Exact same location (default)" produces Grouped Orders at the same address.
In the pictures below, we've used the Proximity Clustering of 30 meters/33 yards. We have a total of 8 Orders on the route, but only a total of 3 Stops are required to complete these 8 Orders!
You can easily view the total number of Stops and the total number of Orders from "Routes" view. The example below uses Proximity Clustering.
When not using Proximity Clustering, there will be 8 Orders that are at 8 different Stops:
