Add Stops to a Trip

Stops can be included within a trip to schedule logistical appointments only to be seen and used by the person traveling. For example, a stop might designate:

  • Flight, hotel, and train details
  • A reminder to stop at FedEx to pick up a package upon arrival.
  • A working session at a local coffee shop.

To add a stop, click new stop in the top right-hand corner of the trip. A manage stop pop-up will appear. Name the stop, and provide start date, end date, time zone, location, and contact information. Clicking on a saved stop will display information from Google Atmosphere, including hours and contact information.
