Update Travel Charge Card for Future-Dated Reservations: When you update the credit card number or expiration date for a travel charge card (GTCC) on the Credit Cards page of a traveler’s E2 user profile, E2 will now check for reservations (i.e., held reservations or a reservation attached to a trip) using that GTCC that have at least one future-dated segment. If a corresponding reservation is found, E2 will update the reservation with the new TCC information. An entry will also be added to the Trip History for any affected trip to reference the change.

Specifically, it applies to cases where advanced preparation in FY22 is required to effectively facilitate FY23 travel. FY22 is 30 September 2022 and prior. FY23 is 01 October 2022 through 30 September 2023. PPC (P&D) has also prepared a user guide for the process - Processing Cross Fiscal Year Travel.
TAKING OTHER TRIP ACTIONS
Most of your actions in E2 Solutions involve a specific document, like an authorization, voucher, or local travel claim. Some actions, however, impact multiple documents. Canceling a trip, for example, impacts all documents associated with the trip, including authorizations, vouchers, travel advances, and reservations. Trip actions include • Canceling a trip • Closing a trip • Copying a trip • Working with trip templates • Making reservations after authorization approval. Updated January 2022.
