How travel rates work

Locked when used

Travel rates Cost and Price fields are locked to prevent editing once they are used on another object in order to protect the historical record. This means that you must make a new travel rate if the price or cost needs to be changed.


When a rate is retired it should be set to inactive by un-checking it's Active checkbox and a new rate created to take it's place. Rate names must be unique so for example if a rate changes yearly then the old rate might be called "In-shop travel 2023" and the new rate called "In shop travel 2024" to ensure names are unique and recognized by users.

Contract travel rates

Travel rates can be created that are only available to specific Contracts.
