We track mile from our warehouses across the country to job sites. If there was an app that could calculate the miles for us and store the milage it would be a good feature. We then could calculate a delivery charge.
I’ve also been looking for this functionality. Right now we run a google maps search for each route and hard key the distance for the shortest route into a numbers column. Not impossible but just boring busy work that we would like to automate.
Are you familiar with Integromat? If not, its a 3rd party integration tool where you can connect other apps to Monday and create your own custom integrations.
I haven’t actually used Google Maps in Integromat yet, but looking at this module:
I’m imagining you can set up a scenario in Integromat to pick up an address from Monday, run it against your origin and have it output the mileage to a column on your board.
Let me know if you need help setting up Integromat.
Hi @andrewalmand we use Zapier. Is that similar/same?
Correct Zapier and Integromat are the same type of software. I don’t use Zapier though so I can’t speak to the integrations it offers. I would start there and see what kind of map applications you can connect.
