How to enable/disable features under TA-Tools/TO-Tools?

Learn how to enable/disable features which are displayed under TA-Tools/TO-Tools


TA-Tools and TO-Tools are tools which 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 are generally seen by all TO users or better admin users of the platform. 

Some of the Tools can be enabled for travel agents users as well, which are called TA-Tools. 

These are especially important for customers with a Travel Agency Management set up and allow to give travel agent users more functionalities. 

If your TripBuilder is setup without Travel Agency Management then the TA-Tools do not need to be enabled. 


Steps to enabled/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
