Basic

TripIt also supports a basic path for a travel planner to add trips to a business traveler's account while being able to view and update the trips from their own TripIt account.  The basic path does not offer a dashboard, team calendar, or spending reports.

Here's how:

  1. Travel planner creates a free TripIt account in their name. (Each traveler also needs their own account.)
  2. If managing multiple travelers, uncheck 'Put new plans into trips' in the Travel preferences section of your profile's About you page, which will make it easier to file the right plans in the right trip.
  3. When it's time to arrange travel for a business traveler, the Traveler planner creates a new trip 'shell' (using any '+ Add a trip' link) in their  TripIt account, entering just the Trip Name, Primary Location, and Start/End Dates, unchecking 'I am a traveler on this trip'. Use trip names like 'Chicago, 5/1/08, Traveler Name' to help keep things organized.
  4. Travel planner forwards all the business traveler's confirmation emails to plans@tripit.com and all travel information is automatically added to the new trip based on the start and end date.  (If managing multiple travelers, travel arranger moves trip from Unfiled Items folder into trip shell.)
  5. Travel planner customizes the TripIt itinerary as necessary, adding driving directions, client meetings, restaurant reservations, etc.
  6. Travel planner shares trip with business traveler, inviting them as a Traveler and an Editor.
