Staff can book a taxi straight from the dashboard by clicking the Book A Taxi button in the page header.

This opens a dialogue box asking for the time the taxi is required – options are ASAP, later today or a future date.

You are then asked to select the origin, destination and any via points. Options are to select from a known address (i.e. school houses) or to enter a new address. Entering a new address uses the address type-ahead lookup which displays matching addresses from a national database. Tip: Enter to postcode then pick from the list.

Next you are asked to enter the passengers. Start typing to display matches from the pupil, parent and staff database, or enter a new person.

Finally you are given the option of using any of the school’s regular taxi suppliers or selecting your preferred supplier from the presented list.

To finish and book the taxi, just click Book.
