A "Route" is always based on a plan or a track. A plan (which comprises simply a title and track geometry) is the initial step in creating a route. A completed route will contain detailed descriptions and data as well as pictures and possibly videos.
How to create a route
If you want to create a route from an already created plan, open the plan and click on the green button "Create route" in the upper right corner (website) or on "Create route" in the lower center (in the app). If you want to create a route from a track, open the track in edit mode and then click on the gray button at the bottom to create a route.
You can then add more information such as directions, details, and pictures. Once your route is complete, you decide whether you want to publish it for all community members or save the route as "private".
In order to publish the route, you first have to change the status under "Publish" in the editing section. Clicking on the slider turns it blue and after saving, the route will then be visible to all community members.
