The product and engineering teams at M-TRIBES keep working on new features and product enhancements. Here's an overview of what's coming next and what’s recently launched.
Features to become available in the next app versions or with the platform update.
Dashboard users will be able to control booking stop visibility on the map. For example, show only drop-off stops of all the bookings on the page, or show all stops but only of the selected booking.
The driver app will allow configuring how scheduled requests are displayed: in full screen or as a banner. A driver can also choose a full-screen display only if they aren't on the active trip.
Sharing tenants will be able to manage their service areas directly on the dashboard without involving customer support and waiting for the production release.
Dispatchers will be able to force assign bookings to drivers. A force-assigned scheduled booking will appear in the Upcoming tab of the driver app and a force-assigned instant booking will appear in the Active tab.
Features in development.
A driver can be prompted to check the ID of a recipient when completing a specific stop. This feature is aimed at tenants that deliver restricted goods such as alcohol and must comply with local regulations.
We're bringing support for services to the customer app. If a tenant provides multiple services on the platform, a user will be able to choose between them before creating a booking.
When creating a booking via API, tenants will be able to add additional booking or stop attributes, such as external reference numbers or links to web pages. Tenants will also be able to add custom checklists to stops prompting drivers to go through them before completing a stop.
A dispatcher will be able to optimize a route of a booking or a driver tour in one click. Stops will be rearranged to minimize the time a driver spends on the road.
A dispatcher will be able to reschedule a not yet dispatched driver tour, and edit stops that don't belong to any of the customer bookings.
A tenant will be able to create user groups and assign vehicles to those groups making vehicles unavailable for the general public.
Previously released features.
We're introducing a new configuration option to send instant booking requests to all eligible drivers at once right after a booking creation. Note that matching stays proximity-based and takes capabilities into account. Contact our support if you'd like to enable this feature for your tenant.
A dispatcher will be able to mute booking request notifications on behalf of drivers via the dashboard. Previously this feature was only available via API only.
Updates to driver location and booking status will now be reflected on the Booking Details page as soon as they're made.
Drivers will be able to share unique referral links to allow tenants to track which drivers generate leads to the application form and which of these leads end up as new drivers.
Dispatchers will be able to edit stops of a booking before dispatching it to drivers.
