This feature allows the operator to duplicate an existing deal.
From Deals list, select the Deal to be duplicated and click on Edit sign:
The system will ask you if you want to duplicate travelers as well. If you choose yes, the travelers are kept in the new deal, if you choose no, only the customers is kept but no traveler assigned.
One step further, the system asks you if you want to update availability for the arrangements of the deal.
Once the deal is duplicated, a new Deal of Type - O (Optional) will be created with a new different code.
Once the duplicate deal is created you may change the customer if needed as explained in Change Customer article.
