Usability Improvement for Role Assignment​ Process

When attempting to save a user without first assigning a role, the operator will now be prompted to confirm that this was their intent before proceeding. This also accompanies a new Role Information section that aims to reduce any confusion.

Note that the Organization Administrator is restricted from deleting the default role of cross-Organizational users.​ The aligned default role auto-setting rule is applied for both Account-level and Organization-level users.

This feature is free to all users and won't affect any preconfigured settings.

What's New in Travel Protector

Custom Travel Reports

Travel Protector users can now define, run and save custom reports for any travel information based on the traveler, segment, and itinerary information. This allows travel managers, GSOC, or anyone else managing the travelers' duty of care to generate reports based on different sets of conditions. 

User-added image

Available only when using the Travel Location Data Feed, Itineraries REST API, or Itinerary Importer. This functionality is not available for legacy connectors such as ISOS, Concur, Magnatech, Ijet, or Amex GBT.

Release Date: February 16

Schedule Custom Travel Reports

Travel Protector customers can now set schedules for sending custom travel reports to a list of email addresses using a specific recurrence. Scheduling options include Daily, Weekly, or Monthly, and can accommodate up to 100 schedules at a time. There's no user email address limit, but users must have the appropriate permissions in the Organization for contacts to receive the report.

Benefits

Contacts

Geocoding If Bing does not return the same coordinates as the ones provided by the user, the latter will be used instead of Bing's coordinates. Provides more accurate geocoding for customers providing their address coordinates.

Notifications and Incidents

CSV Upload

When Contacts are selected via CSV upload during the launch of a Notification, an error report (with a reason for failure) will be generated for Contacts that were not added due to an error in processing.

Operators can make the necessary corrections and re-upload the file.
