To enable POI categories at the front end booking form go to Dashboard > Settings > General settings > Show Categories drop down: Yes (In the Fixed fare routes section).

Point of interest categories can be created in advance at Dashboard > POI Categories section, pre-created categories are: Airports, Cruise ports, Hotels, Landmarks, Towns and Train stations but you can always add more.

Note: POI Categories eg. Airport, Post code, Station will only be shown if there is a Published Fixed fare route that contains a point of interest assigned to that POI Category. This feature hides selection options that are not active so the users are not confused with No car (empty) results.

The Driver app that comes for free with The Booking Form on the cloud (https://booking.drivenot.com) is a Progressive Web App that can be installed on any device that supports PWA - all Android devices with Chrome browser are supported.

The Driver app allows drivers to log in at any time on their device and see their jobs, they can Accept or Reject jobs and get directions to the jobs that they have already accepted.
The app is also generating reports that show Driver's activity and earnings.
Once installed on the device (mobile phone or tablet) the app will automatically update itself, it doesn't take any space on the device and some of its features work even offline.

1. To get the Driver app please create your Drivers through the back office > Dashboard > Users > Add new.
2. Ask your Drivers to sign in to https://booking.drivenot.com/administrator on their Android mobile devices with their email addresses and passwords.
3. After they sign in they will see an Install App button across the top of their screen and when they tap on it the app will install on their device.
4. They can now open the app at any time and sign in to use it. 

Here is a short video that shows how the app works:

You can make the system work as Quotation system only.

At the back office > Dashboard > Settings > General price settings you can set "Show prices: No" and no price will be calculated but the available cars will be still shown on the search results page.

You will have to also go to the back office > Dashboard > Translations > English and search and edit texts like: "See price", "Book now", "Grand total".

Also, please make sure that you only have Cash payment method published at back office > Dashboard > Payment methods.

The system will send you an email on each new booking and you can reply to your customer directly to negotiate the price. Add a comment
Price calculation (price details) can be checked easily so Admins can see what is included in the Total that the customer is charged. The price calculation will include not only the Base price which is set per kilometre/mile or via Fixed fare routes but also paid Custom fields, Additional charges, "dead mileage" charges, taxes, tips etc.

To enable Price calculation debugging please go to Dashboard > Settings > General Price settings > Debug Price calculation: Yes > Save & Close

Price calculation will now be available at the front end Booking form after a Search for particular Date/time and destinations is done. Price calculation will be visible under each Car in the Cars result table but will only be visible to logged in Administrators (log in at the front end booking form - top right corner).

See video below for walk-through for Price calculation details.

Distance sectors are a flexible way to set up different charges per kilometre/mile for different trip distances. You benefit from either lowering or raising the price for longer distances by building a system that detects and compares actual trip distance with your distance sector price setup.

To set up Distance sectors go to back office > Dashboard > Cars > click on New or Edit car and scroll down to  

In the section, Distance sectors select a Cumulative or Non-cumulative type of sectors and click on the "Add new" button.

You can create Distance sectors and assign a separate price per unit distance eg. Distance From: 0 - Distance To: 5 - Price: 1 means the Price per unit distance between 0 and 5 miles/kilometres is $1 Note: To configure complex per mile/kilometre taxi fares, use "Add new" button to add new Distance Sector and "Remove" button to remove a Distance Sector. Changes will be active when you Save the General Price settings panel.

Distance Sectors fare calculator can be of two different types: Cumulative or Non-cumulative. Simply put Cumulative price will add up prices for distance sectors and the Non-cumulative price will use the price of the single distance sector the journey length falls into.

Example: create sequence of prices for trips with different length eg. 0-2 x 4 means: between 0 and 2 miles long trips price per mile is £4, 2-10 x 5 means: from 2nd to 10th mile price per mile is £5
The structure has to be as follows without overlapping of mileage (if you skip a distance the Default price will be applied if journey falls in that gap):
0-5 miles x £3
5-10 miles x £2
10-20 miles x £1.5
(do not use currency symbol as it is taken from your General Settings)
Cumulative price calculation example: If the trip is 100 miles and you have set up "Price per unit distance: 1" and distance sectors 0 to 5 miles x $2, 5 to 10 miles x $1.50 then the total will be calculated: (5 x 2) + (5 x 1.5) + (90 x 1) = Total, where (5 x 2) is 0 to 5 or 5 miles x $2, (5 x 1.5) is 5 to 10 miles or 5 miles x $1.5 and (90 x 1) is total distance 100 miles - 5+5 miles sectors = 90 miles x $1 for the rest of the journey based on your Price per distance settings.
Non-cumulative price calculation example: If the trip is 100 miles and you have set up "Price per unit distance: 1" and distance sectors 0 to 20 miles x $2, 20 to 110 miles x $1.5 then the total will be calculated: 100 x 1.5 = Total as the journey of 100 miles falls in the distance sector of 20 to 110 miles where the price is $1.5 per mile.
Note: If you use Tariffs the tariffs will be automatically pulled here with separate price for each Tariff. You can adjust those prices and Save.
