Why did you start searching for an online solution for group travel?

Ultimately we were spending way too much time organizing our group travel. The data was living in many different places and every coordinator was sending their travel information in different formats. Travelers were becoming increasingly frustrated when going from tour to tour because nothing was standardized. The lack of standards was evident when a coordinator left our team or was out for a period of time, we didn't have a workflow that allowed for another coordinator to access information and fill in. We needed a solution to completely standardize our process so that everyone was doing the exact same thing in the exact same place.

What were the challenges that your group coordinators were facing?

Each coordinator was spending a large portion of their time manually entering data. This was not only a large resource drain but it also came with the possibility of human error when entering data into spreadsheets. We have a travel management company but there was no single source of truth with the most up to date information for the entire team. Without having one location to store, organize and track all of this travel, the managers had a lack of transparency into the big picture for group travel.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
