"Meet At" button on worker schedule

I see this "Meet At" button on the workers site (see attached). All it does is give employees directions to the warehouse. Is there a hidden feature here that I'm missing? I'd love to be able to designate shifts to meet at the warehouse or meet at the event site.

In the lead under the schedule tab you can choose where the workers scheduled are going to meet by choosing under the Location drop down box. Normally you wouldn't change this because most will meet at warehouse. But if you have situations where workers are going to meet at the event you can change it here...then when worker pushes the Meet At button it will give them directions to the event.

That's pretty cool, I didn't know that was there. Problem is, I can't change the location after the shift has been created in the delivery tab. I can only change it on new shifts if I create them in the lead. So if I use this feature, my scheduling becomes all fragmented. Any chance we can get this drop down box added to the spot where we schedule shifts in the delivery tab? I can already see it being a potential problem when you have multiple leads scheduled on a route - how would it know which event site to meet at? However, I think the benefits far outweigh the rare occasion where that would happen. Right now it's wrong 100% of the times we want them to meet at the event site.

I can ask the development team if that is an option in the future. Until then I guess if you know ahead of time that you would want a worker to meet at the even I would just add their shift on the lead.
