Hi There

Welcome to our Product Updates for 18th September 2018. As always, we hope you find these useful. Should you have any questions about any of the Enhancements or Fixes, please reach out and we'll be happy to assist. 


The following enhancements have been introduced.  

Offline Quotes with PNR code should have 'View Itinerary' button  

If a PNR code has been added to a quote for an Offline booking, we now display the View Quote button to allow a traveller/authoriser to view the itinerary We will also no longer be displaying the View Quote button for quotes with only an attachment, as you will be able to view the uploaded quote by clicking on the name of the file (attachment).  

Note:  This is also dependent on Live Itinerary Service enabled via Site Admin

 'Traveller details' should be consistent regardless of user role

Profile API - Remove Uid from meal preference API  

Only affects consumers of the Profile API.  

This update improves the consistency of our API, as we have removed the need for a Uid code for Meal Preferences via the API.   The POST and PATCH entries for Meal Preferences will now do the same thing, as profile can only have 1 meal preference.

Travelfusion - Remove non-alpha characters in cardholder name field  

To prevent booking failure for Travelfusion sourced airlines, we have removed the ability to enter non-alpha character in the card holders name field, for certain airlines that are applying validation in the name field.

Hotelzon - Hotel rules display under Room detail   

This feature is still in progress, therefore user won't see any changes yet. 

When a traveller selects a Hotelzon hotel, and a list of rooms are displayed, when they click on "Room details" they will see a list of the rules applicable for that rate/room.

New uAPI upgrade to integrate with uPolicy

We have fixed the following issues.

For companies with Allow management of department credit cards enabled, it is now possible to edit company departments that have credit cards and have them exported to CBT without errors.

Sorting should be available via Site Admin  

We now allow admin users to sort the on-screen lists for Offices, Company Departments, Cost Centres and Policy Groups by clicking on the column heading.    

Refer Pull request #4896  (LM-7081)  

Show Country Risk for Hotel &/or Car only Trips  

Previously, there was an issue with the Country Risk module if there was no flight segment. If the module is configured, we now show Country Risk for every country which has Hotel AND/OR Car AND/OR Flight. We won't show Country Risk for first departure flight if it doesn't have hotel and car, as we assume that it is the Home airport.
