All your vehicles are listed on the Assignments panel next to the Orders panel.

Route status is set to Assigned until the driver starts the first stop, then it moves to In Progress. Detailed activity statuses also update accordingly as follows:

The list of completed routes, displaying a status of Done or Cancelled.
Inside each type of completed route, there may be successful, failed or cancelled pickups or deliveries.
The driver app automatically leads the driver to return failed deliveries to the starting depot before the route can be completed. These returns can be identified on the dashboard in the Orders list via the filter for ‘Not done’ status (they are not shown in the route details). Cancelled pickups and their matching deliveries are shown as Accepted orders, with the time of cancellation marked in red.
