geo localisation logic

I think the geo localisation is quite a neat feature. But I don't see the logic that is behind the assigning. I have salesman x with level 1, weight 500, location a salesman y with level 2, weight 1000, location z

And a lead at location f. Which salesman will be chosen, x or y?

There must be a formula being used for this, but I don't know it. Maybe someone can have a look at the code?

Hello,

the code is rather simple :

  • weight is only used to select partners with weight > 0
  • then partners are found with the following algorithm :

    1. first way: in the same country, small area
    2. second way: in the same country, big area
    3. third way: in the same country, extra large area
    4. fourth way: anywhere in same country
    5. fifth way: closest partner whatsoever, just to have at least one result

Marc.
