Auto-Calculating Ground Travel Time and Distance

Follow

Master Tour has a handy little feature that allows you to calculate the time and distance between two venues without having to manually enter this information into Google Maps.  Here's how you use it:

First, you'll need two consecutive tour dates with venue addresses entered in the  Event section of the Itinerary.  Then, you'll need to create a Travel item in the Itinerary section of one of the two days:

Then, click the little map icon next to the Distance field.  This will bring up a window asking which route you want:

Where you can double click on the desired route.  This will populate your time and distance fields in the Travel section of your Itinerary:

Now your time and distance values have been inputted into Master Tour!

    Is there a way to set up a "Home" departure location without setting it up as an event?

    Hey Roger,

    Currently, no.  However, once you create your "Home" as a Venue, you'll be able to quickly add it to tour dates in the future, as this record will be saved on your local database.

    Thanks,

    Is there a way to print a report of the entire tour with distances?

    Hey Clancy,

    There sure is! As of Master Tour version 2.0.831 (our latest version currently), we have a Travel Report under File>Print>Travel>[HTML] Travel Report that can print out all of your travel for a tour, including distances, flight legs, confirmation numbers, and travel details.

    Thanks,
    Patrick
