Ability to Filter Rooms by Rate Code
In conjunction with the new Ability to Control the Order of Hotel Rooms Based on Multi-level Rate Codes enhancement outlined above, we have added new filters at the Hotel Option Level to control which Hotel Negotiated Rate Programs are displayed. The available filters are displayed as buttons below the Hotel Images that filter the various Hotel Negotiated Rate Programs.
The user can click on the hotel filter, and then the rooms will be filtered accordingly.
In the example below, the user clicked on the orange star, which then filtered all the rooms that were applicable for that rate code:

User Management Items
Agents can Build but not Delete Traveler Profiles
To activate this feature, the following rules must be added to the Agent policy branch.
- ‘Allow Administration Access = Yes’
- ‘Allow User Management Access = Yes’
- ‘Disable user delete = Yes’
- ‘Auto assign user as Travel Planner = Yes’
Note: After attaching the new rules, you must Compile your policy.
After the rules are set and compiled, Agents can navigate to the User Management page.
Once the agent completes the required fields and selects Create User, they will be presented with a list of available profile templates to Clone from. All profile Templates will be available to the Agent.
Templates within the company should be limited to those needed by an Agent that will place the new user profile on the correct policy branch. If the Admin needs to add another Administrator, the Admin should Clone one of the traveler templates and then move the new Admin to the Administrator policy branch using Maintenance located in the Active Policy.
New Rule Item to Control Template Access
We have added a new feature to our user management system to give you even more control over template access when creating new users. With this new rule item, you can easily specify which templates users can access during the user creation process. This means you can ensure that new users only have access to the relevant templates to their role, making it easier for them to get started and minimizing the risk of mistakes. Overall, this enhancement to our user management system will streamline your workflow and simplify managing user access to templates.
We are excited to introduce this new feature that seamlessly integrates with the 'Ability for Agents to Build but Not Delete Traveler Profiles' enhancement. With this latest addition, users can enjoy even more flexibility and control in managing their traveler profiles.
