WP Travel Engine Product Update – May 2023

We’re excited to bring you the first edition of our monthly Product Update, packed with the latest updates to WP Travel Engine.

Last month, we introduced some significant enhancements, including an upgrade to our Zapier Addon Data Export, new features in our Trips Block, and the launch of our Analytics Dashboard.

These updates are designed to manage your travel business even easier and provide you with business insights.

Let’s explore what we built in WP Travel Engine last month.

1. Improved Data Export for Zapier Addon

Our Zapier addon for WP Travel Engine has been upgraded. Previously, you could not extract all the additional trip services data using our Extra Services addon to Zapier, which could have been more convenient. This update allows you to access your Extra Services data using Zapier webhooks easily.

What are We Building Next?

June 2023 is set to be a thrilling month, packed with new features and enhancements for WP Travel Engine. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re crafting:

  • Analytics Dashboard Upgrade: We’re supercharging the Analytics Dashboard with more features to provide deeper insights into your travel business.
  • Email Per Trip: Get ready for personalized communication! This feature will enable you to send trip-specific information to customers upon booking.
  • Custom Enquiry Form: Flexibility at your fingertips! You’ll soon be able to use your own WordPress form as an alternative to our current enquiry form.
  • Enquiry to Multiple Users: Communication made easy! This feature will allow multiple users to receive enquiry form submissions, ensuring all relevant parties stay in the loop.
  • Export Booking Data: You’ll soon be able to download booking data for all tour participants, making follow-up emails a breeze.
  • Mandatory Extra Services: This feature will allow you to make certain extra services compulsory when booking a trip, ensuring customers don’t miss out on key offerings.
  • Conditional Display of Trip: Tailor your trip displays! Hide trips without fixed departure dates based on conditions you set.
  • Single Trip Edit: We’re starting work on a feature that will make the Single Trip page editable using the Elementor plugin. This is a complex feature, so we’ll be continuing its development into the following month.

We are dedicated to improving our platform at WP Travel Engine to offer you the simplest and most effective tools for managing your travel business. The recent updates and improvements, from the smooth data transfer to the user-friendly screens, are designed to give you more control and make your work easier.

We encourage you to explore these new features and take advantage of the valuable insights they provide. As always, we value your feedback and are excited to continue improving your travel business management experience with WP Travel Engine.
