Leave Transport Types are the methods used for students to depart and return to campus in their leave requests.

You can set an unlimited number of Leave Transport Types and when setting up your Leave Types you have the capability to set which Leave Transport Types can be used with each individual Leave Type.

How to create a new Transport Type

Is the name given to your Leave Transport Type

You can set the Transport Type to be available for departure, return or both directions.

Voyage Type
Is it a Standard Transport Type or a Voyage Transport Type?  

Reach Voyage

Reach Voyage is an optional module that enhances the "Leave Transport Type" and "Return Transport Type" fields for leave requests.  

When Voyage is activated in your Reach portal you can create an unlimited number of transport type templates which can be used to collect and report transport information in your Transport Hub dashboard.

Where Voyage is different from the standard transport types in Reach is in its data collection capability.  Data fields that are collected in Voyage templates for transport legs used in a leave request can be collated in display tables for easy viewing or exporting. This allows you to easily build collections of common transport details (eg: to see a list of all flights being taken for your end of term leave departures).

Voyage Transport legs have multiple fields

When selecting a Voyage transport type as a transport method users are presented with a number of fields representing the data that you have elected to collect.  You can determine what information is collected by setting the template fields for each Voyage transport type.

Users can add multiple transport legs to a leave request

When the Voyage module is activated you can add multiple transport legs to a leave request in the Voyage module so it is possible to collect all details of multi-leg journeys such as connecting flights.
