7. Creating a connection

It is recommended to create the offered trip types under System > System parameters before creating the first connections. These will be e.g. displayed in the trip finder later.

Dokumentation

Also under System > System parameters you can create the offered additions under Connections - Additions. You will be assigned later to the wizards for the quick allocation of additions/Extras of the lines.

Tip:

Would you like to offer combined tickets, for example for a museum admission, so set this also as an extra / additional receiver with the appropriate commission.

Now create a new connection under administration > connections.

Fill in all the fields and make sure the box next to "Display on the Internet" is checked. Finally, click on accept.

To set your connection as active, some further steps are necessary. Click on the edit icon in connection overview at your connection.

Dokumentation

You will see more tabs with settings for the connections and can execute them according to the row.

First, select the stations in the order in which they are approached.
You can either combine, as in the example, the outbound and the return trip in a line, or create a separate line for the return trip.

Dokumentation

We continue with the timetable tab.
The roadmap is divided according to the trips and various times. If there is no arrival or departure at a station at a particular trip, then simply leave the field empty.

In the days of service first set the time period, in which the connection is valid. Do not forget to click "Save"!

Dokumentation

Eventually you can enter the days of service for the single trips with the wizards into the time periods. It is up to you to choose the days of the week on which you mark the desired rows.

Dokumentation

In > Days of service > Overview you can control which traffic days were set. These can also be adjusted manually in the tab > days of service sections.

Eventually, enter the booking rules.

In the next step, you will determine the fares. To do this, select the fare in the appropriate tab and click on "Load prices". The prices can now be entered for each price type, equipment and additions.

Dokumentation

Under "Other Settings" you can make more configurations to the respective price types. It is important here that "available in online booking on the internet" and, if applicable, "available for agencies " are ticked, as the price type would otherwise only be bookable by employees.

In the Accounting tab set the revenue accounts and cost centers as well as further information.
If everything is ready and checked, the connection will also be activated here in the accounting section and it is then valid for the specified period.

Dokumentation

Tip:

Under System > System parameters: Connection - Fares you can create additional fares.
The available payment methods will also be controlled from System > System parameters: Connection – Payment type. Select only the payment types, which you also have and always keep in touch with us.
