TA-Tools and TO-Tools are tools that are displayed in the planner of the TripBuilder system when they are enabled. These tools give further functionalities to different user segments.
TO-Tools are Tour operator tools, and they are generally used by all TO users or admin users of the platform.
On the other hand, TA-Tools are intended for Travel agents users, which are especially important for customers with a Travel Agency Management set up.
If your TripBuilder is set up without Travel Agency Management, then the TA-Tools check box does not need to be enabled.
Steps to enable/disable TO-Tools:
- Go to Settings
- Click on Distribution Channels
- Click on your TripBuilder ID
- Click on the Planner tab
- Enable/Disable the different features by checking the boxes
- Click Save
The following table explains in more detail the different functions of the features.

|Open Itinerary In Cockpit||
This option allows authorized users to open itineraries in Cockpit / Customer Care.
|Create Template From Itinerary||
Enabling this option is basically the reverse of initiating an itinerary based on a template. This option will allow users to save an individually planned trip from scratch as a new template, which can later be re-used.
Base Services are additional components that have a fixed pricing for a set duration. They offer the option to shorten or extend the duration of service, by subtracting or adding a specified amount from the fixed price.
In order to add these Base Services to an itinerary, the user must have Inventory access where the option of creating and adding these services is possible.
