Clicking Program Settings takes you to the page where you can change the display of data in portatour®:
Select Show trips for portatour® to display the journeys in the schedule, including destination, distance and duration between stops. If you want to hide these journey lines to save space, select Hide trips.
With Show full destination address portatour® will always show the complete destination address for drives in the schedule, i.e. street name with house number, ZIP code and city. Show at least destination city triggers the display of only the ZIP code and city on small screens (e.g. smartphones) to ensure a better overview, and the display of the entire address on bigger screens.
With Show business hours, customer business hours are displayed by portatour® in the schedule for the respective day, as long as they differ from the default business hours. If you want to hide this additional information, select Hide business hours.
With Show urgency, portatour® highlights the due date for each customer call (=urgency) by displaying the respective icon in the schedule. The icons disappear by selecting Hide urgency.
Select Show only city to show the ZIP code and the city below each customer name in customer lists. Select Show full address to also see the further address details. If you recognize your customers by name and want to save space, select Hide address.
If your smartphone or tablet is equipped with a GPS receiver and a navigation program is installed, this is where you can activate the navigation function on the customer and appointment detail page. If you select Automatic, portatour® recognizes which device you use and opens the default navigation software installed (currently Apple Maps on iOS devices and Google Maps on Android devices). Hint: If your navigation program is not listed, select Google Maps Navigation from the drop-down menu – some programs work correctly when called like Google Maps. Note that navigation programs, which obtain map data from the internet, may need additional data volume and thus cause additional costs, depending on your mobile operator. If you want to turn off the navigation function in portatour®, select No Navigation.
This setting is relevant if you use portatour® Anywhere on the road on your smartphone or tablet.
With the setting Close immediately, the connection to the internet will be disconnected a few seconds after loading the page, depending on the smartphone and network operator. Consequently, a new connection needs to be set up when loading the next page, which in turn delays the loading process.
Select Keep for several minutes to ensure that portatour® retains the internet connection after loading a page and thus accelerates the loading of subsequent pages. If you stay on a page for a couple of minutes, the connection will still be cut off. Please note that keeping the internet connection active for a longer period of time will slightly increase the battery consumption of your smartphone and the data volume transferred. The additional data volume is typically around 10 MB per month when used every day.
Select Refresh offline data to activate the offline mode in portatour®. Go to section Offline mode to read more about the offline mode.
