This article will cover how to manage and create your products in the ‘Products’ section of the ‘Group’ menu of the YourDriverApp Portal. In the 'Group' menu you can find all information for you as owner and/or admin of a group, in this menu you will find the following group based menu items:
Products are a set of vehicle products you can currently only use with your external booking integrations. (these 'Products' are not available for the YourDriverApp solution itself to configure).
Typical examples of products are “Van”, “Economy”, “Premium”, “Lady cab” etc. It’s is how you are offering your services to your customers. It’s also the basis for all the prices you choose to configure.
The reason you need to create products is in order to setup Pricing rules, because without products you can not link any pricing rules to a product which you want to apply to your external booking integration(s).
When a group is created, the Driver Portal automatically creates your default products based on the 5 vehicle types known in YourDriverApp environment:
- Name: Saloon (type: Saloon)
- Name: Estate (type: Estate)
- Name: Minivan (type: Minivan)
- Name: Bus (type: Bus)
- Name: Limo (type: Limo)
So basically the input in the 'Product' section are the product names you want to use in your external booking interfaces. For example, when you have a passenger app integrated to your group the product names are shown in the vehicle selection screen.
You can easily change the name of a product by opening the details page of a product, to open the details page simply click on the product row. Here you can edit the following:
- Name: This is the name shown in your external booking interfaces.
- Type: Here you can set what vehicle type your product is. In the YourDriverApp software there a 5 vehicle types available; Saloon, Estate, Minivan, Bus and Limo).
- Passenger capacity: Here you can set what the passenger capacity is of your product.
- To delete a product entirely simply click the red ‘Delete’ button.
Of course it is also possible to create extra products next to the default available ones, just click the blue '+' sign on the right bottom of the screen.
