How Does It Work?

What is a Zone?

A Zone is a geographical area where your services are active. You might provide services in a local area in the world. You must specify this local area in the software. The Zoning feature in the dashboard makes it possible to draw the boundaries of this area. Also, It is possible to have more than one zone which you can draw all of them on the map. The Zone is a basic entity in the Onro Software and no services would not be provided if any zones had not been defined.

Manage your zones

To manage your zones:

  1. In your dashboard, click the Zoning on the left menu. This opens the list of zones' page.

  2. On the list of zones' page, choose if you want to:

Create a new zone

To create a zone on the list of zones' page:

  1. Provide the following information:

    • The status of the zone in the field Status. There are two values for selecting which one of them must be selected:

      • Active: If you select this value, the zone will be active after creating.

      • Deactivate: If you select this value, the zone will not be active after creating but you can activate it later.

  2. Draw your zone using the following instructions:

    • Draw the zone using the shapes. Two shapes are considered to draw zones:

      • Polygon: Using a polygon, you can draw a shape that has more edges. Polygons are used when it is necessary to draw a zone very accurately.

      • Rectangle: Rectangles are mostly used in cases where the accuracy of the boundary of the zone is not very important.

A few important points in creating zones:

  1. The drawn zones are displayed in blue and red. Blue means the zone is active and red means it is inactive.

  2. In drawing the shape of the zone, use as few points as possible. Fewer points make it easier to process and edit and reduce the likelihood of disruption.

Edit a zone

To edit your desired zone on the list of zones' page, click the Action button in the row of the list:

This opens the Edit zone's page which is very like to the Create zone's page. The difference between the Edit zone's page and the Create zone's page is that it only has tools for editing and deleting layers:

Other sections of this page are similar to the Create zone's page and you can use the description provided in the Create a new zone section to edit the zone.
