-===== Customising Risk Levels and Itinerary Categories ===== +

-The Risk Levels (Required, Standard, Increased Risk and High Risk) can be modified but we would strongly advise you to contact support@incaplex.com before doing so. If nothing else it will add more work for you. +

-Itinerary Categories (or Behaviours) refer to things like accommodation,​ planned activities or trip purpose. If you would like to add or modify travel behaviours this is easier to do. From the Inca Administration tab - click on the Itinerary Categories link. From here you can modify which Risk Level a Category falls under. Any new Categories will appear on the [[travelitinerary|Travel Itinerary step]] and on the Risk Level Visualizer. +
