How to set the default Travel Date in HWeb Agent

Setting the Default Pickup / Travel Date in HWeb Agent.

When starting a "normal" reservation in HWeb Agent, in order to save keystrokes and help shorten the reservation entry time, you can set the preferred or default date that appears on the Fare and Availability screen.

This is done by making a very simple change to your HWeb.ini (configuration) file that is stored on your server in the Hudson \ HWeb subfolder.

****NOTE: Making changes to this file must be done carefully, and judiciously as mistakes or errors may result in your Hudson applications failing to load, or work properly. If you have ANY questions or concerns, please consult with Hudson Tech Support BEFORE you make any changes!  If you will be making changes, it is wise to make a backup copy of the HWeb.ini file BEFORE you begin!****

Two steps are required to enable blank date/time fields:
  1. Edit the Hweb.ini configuration file
  2. Edit the Advanced Configuration

1) Editing the HWeb.ini file
Browse to and locate the HWeb.ini file on your server.
Open the file for editing using Notepad, or other text editor.
Locate the section labeled [RESERVATION DEFAULTS] - typically near the top of the file.
Browse to and locate the lines: FlightDayOffset=
Select one of the following values, depending on your desire:

-1   Sets the default date and time to BLANK (empty fields)
0   Sets the default date and time to now (current date / time)
1   Sets the default date and time to Tomorrow
2   Sets the default date and time to 2 days from today
3   Sets the default date and time to 3 days from today
.....and so forth.

If desired, you can also change the default setting for the Flioght Time.  This is done by adjusting the setting: FlightTimeOffset=
Select one of the following values, depending on your desire:

00:00 - Sets default pickup time to Midnight
01:01 - Sets default pickup time to one hour and one minute from current clock time
05:00 - Sets default pickup time to 5 hours from the current clock time
....and so forth.

Save changes and Exit.

2) Editing the Advanced Configuration (required if you are trying to set the defaults to be blank)
Click Tools - Configuration - Advanced Features - Reservation Tab
Locate the line: Use Windows standard date and time technology.
This field should NOT be checked. If currently checked, remove it.

Click Apply and OK.

Relaunch your HWeb Agent application and begin a new reservation. Your desired date/time should be displayed. If not, please contact Tech Support for further guidance and assistance.
