Couple of changes to the online booking engine
Firstly you can now request that either an agent or an existing customer can (or must) login at the start of the online booking process. If you make it mandatory the availability screen will not show until they are logged in.
If you want both agent and customer login then you are going to have to create two booking engines (on your same account) - go to Configuration & Setup - websites - and add a second website.
Note for the booking engine you are using for the agent login you could configure the new booking email to send to the agent (rather than the customer).
Agent and customer usernames / passwords can be extracted using tokens - so you could - in your emails - tell your customers what their login details are.
IF you want the customer login functionality to work you are going to need to turn on the CUSTOMER URL switch in the account setup. This is an added layer of protection...... yeah we know this makes it more complex - but we have had to do it this way for various reasons.
Lastly, the booking engine (and customer templates such as RTFs and emails) is now available in German.
This means the following languages are now fully supported (English - US, English - UK, English - Australian, French, German, Dutch). We are intending to add Italian, Portuguese and Spanish shortly..... (when we get time) - and some other languages to take us into new markets......
The web design manual has been updated to reflect this functionality (download from http://www.tourcms.com/support/
