What do these words mean
The Yojee user interface is shared by many many users, so it is by design that generic terminology are used. This article guides you through the process of working with these different concepts in Yojee.
Senders are used when creating orders in Yojee. This can be the person (individual) or company (corporate) who is sending the goods or your customer that you are moving goods for. A sender must be present in Yojee before an order can be created.
An order represents the consigned movement of goods and comprises of the following:
- Order Details
- Reference Numbers
- Service Types
- Packing Mode
- Booking Information
- Pickup & Drop off tasks with address and contact information
- You can have multiple legs per booking
- Dimensions, weight and volume
- Item Type (ie carton, pallet, container)
- Special instructions
A leg comprises of both a pickup and drop off task.
You can create as many legs as required to a booking. This configuration is enabled inside the Templates within Manage.
An Item represents a delivery unit e.g. package, pallet, container. Yojee allows dispatchers to view, manage and dispatch items on an individual basis or in bulk.
An item is linked to every leg inside a booking and each booking can have multiple items.
The quantity filled into a Yojee order should always be the outer count. If you need to track individual items, the quantity should always be 1 for every item. And you would have multiple items to produce individual item labels.
If you only need to track a movement, ie a full load of 22 pallets. You could have 1 item with the quantity as 22. The quantity can then be updated on the driver app if it was short delivered/collected. This is then reflected on the dispatcher view and POD
