Two Types of Schedule Slots
Once Samaritan’s Client Services department has enabled the transportation module for your eCoordinator account you will be able to create two types of schedule slots:
|1.||Appointment/Event slots: These are the types of schedule slots that are normally scheduled using eCoordinator when the transportation module is not enabled. Use these types of schedule slots for things such as tutoring sessions or beach clean ups.|
|2.||"Ride slots," or "Rides": These schedule slots are used specifically to schedule rides.|
Why have two types of schedule slots? Because, they record different types of information. For example, an appointment or event may require the recording of a single address which is the location of the appointment or event. However, a ride will require a record of two addresses, the pickup or start address and the dropoff or end address.
