The Route Library is your central location to organize your Tour Operator account routes. Add tags for organization, and manage route visibility all from a single page.
When you first set up your Tour Operator account, we will happily transfer over all of your existing routes from an established account or group so that all existing routes and URLs to the routes will remain intact.
The Tour Operator account acts like a separate account, so you will have to sign into the Tour account to plan and edit routes, add routes, and add tags.
Click the sign into club button.
The top of the menu will turn yellow to signify that you have signed in as the Tour account. Only an approved route manager will ever see this option.
Route Managers can click sign into club account (manage routes) to start making any changes additions to the route library.
The top toolbar on the website will turn yellow to signify you are signed in with your Tour account.
Click sign out while the toolbar is yellow to return to your personal account.
If the toolbar is grey, then you are signed in with your personal account.
There are many options for sorting routes. Click on any of the header columns to sort by that attribute. Click the column header again to reverse the sort order.
Routes in the Tour account library can have their own privacy settings. Only a route manager will have access to these options.
Public – Anyone, including members and non-members, can view these routes.
Club Members – Only members of the Tour account can see these routes.
Route Managers – Only members with the ability to “Manage Routes” will see these routes.
Tour routes can be visible to the public, only to route managers, or only to Tour account members. To set privacy settings for your Tour routes, log in to your Tour account and scroll down to the Route Library. Select the routes you wish to adjust.
Once you’ve selected the routes you wish to adjust, click “set privacy” at the bottom of the Route Library. Select the desired privacy level from the menu that appears, and click the save button to apply the setting to the selected routes.
Add routes to your Tour Account Library
What good is a Tour account if you don’t have any routes to share with your tour participants? Here are a couple of ways to add routes to your Tour route library.
If you have a route on another account (for instance your personal account or the account of a staff member) that you would like to add to your library, follow these steps:
Sign in to the Tour Operator account.
Bring up the route you want to add to your Tour account library.
In the left side panel, click MORE > COPY TO MY ROUTES.
You can optionally change name and permission on the following screen
Click COPY TO MY ROUTES to finish
Saving routes to the Tour Account Route Library
Approved route managers can work on routes in their personal accounts and then save them to the Tour account. To do this, create or edit your route, save it to your personal account, and then follow these steps:
Click the save button in the upper left corner.
When the prompt for a route name and more details pops up, go to the drop-down list for add to group, event, or club and select your Tour account from the list.
Administrators and route managers can log in to the Tour account and use the route planner to plan routes to be saved directly into the Tour account Route Library:
Sign in to the Tour account.
Click the “Plan” link in the yellow menu bar at the top of the screen to open the route planner.
Plan your route and click “save.”
Your route will be saved into the Tour account Route Library.
From the Route Library
You can use multiple tags to organize routes and allow Tour Operator account members to quickly search and filter routes.
Select the routes you wish to tag.
Click set tags
In the Route Tags field, type in the desired tag or click to show the list of available tags.
After you have typed a tag, press enter to complete the tag. It will appear in a small box.
Repeat these steps to add additional tags to the same route.
Click the add tags button to finish adding the tag to the route or click rem tags to remove the tag from the route.
While Saving a Route
You can also add and edit tags on a route while saving the route.
After you have added tags, you can further sort your routes by clicking filters. This will allow you to sort by tags, minimum or maximum distance, minimum or maximum elevation, route name, and location. You can add multiple tags to further filter your routes and better organize large route libraries.
Tour Account admins are able to lock routes to prevent any changes from being made until the routes are unlocked. Lock routes can not be edited or deleted until they are first unlocked and only admins have the ability to lock or unlock routes.
Check the boxes to select which routes to lock.
Once selected, click LOCK.
Now that the routes are locked, no changes can be made without first unlocking the route.
Check the boxes to select which routes to unlock.
Once selected click UNLOCK.
Now the routes are unlocked and may be modified by club member with Route manager privileges.
If viewing a locked route, you’ll see the lock icon prepended to the route name. If anyone clicks edit (note it is greyed out) they will be alerted that the route is locked and cannot be modified.
You can also view the edit history of all of your individual Tour account routes, including date and route managers.
Sign in as the Tour account
Scroll down to your route library
Click on the cog icon next to the route you want to view.
This will expand a pop-up box listing the revision history for that specific route, in addition to the privacy settings, events, and tags associated with the route.
When route managers are saving changes to a Tour account route, they can leave a Changelog note that describes the changes and why they were made.
This option does not appear when saving routes to a personal account.
Change location of routes
Anyone with the ability to sign-in as the Tour account can change the starting location of a route. This is handy if you want to specify the neighborhood or landmark of the start of the ride rather than the default city.
Sign in as the Tour account.
Click the selection box for the routes you want to change.
Click the set city button at the bottom of the list.
