A few important notes about adding multiple tour guides;
- Now an option to notify a guide when they are added or removed from a tour
- No longer a dropdown menu in the events/calendar/manifest to select tour guides, but rather a edit icon that launches a modal to drag and drop available guides to selected guides for that event.
- Assign multiple guides in bulk edit functionality in Events, and in advances options when adding new tour guides.

Google Analytics Update;
Withe the EzBook process, the funnel steps for tracking checkout behaviour data in google analytics include 7 steps. Date Select, Time Select, Ticket Select, Customer Information, Payment Information, Confirmation, Additional Info/Finalization
That being said, for orders coming through the calendar, or direct links to bookings were skewing the data and possibly creating false statistics. The following updates have been made.
- Preloading a date (linking from a calendar) will automatically trigger steps 1 & 2, and the tracking will make it appear that the user entered from step 1 (date select).
- Any eCertificate sale will trigger steps 1 & 2, as it's first screen is essentially step 3 (Ticket Select). Checkout behavior will make it appear that the user has already been through steps 1 and 2.
- On mobile there is no step 2, it is auto triggered on step 3.

-Google Adwords Conversions Tracking; Google Adwords Conversion Script inconsistencies in not firing conversions data has been fixed however is still being monitored.
- Manifest/Event notes with significant text would overlap onto the buyer questions. Now text is wrapping correctly and pushing text down the page. No layout issues on the manifest.

- With the rollout of the Multi Guide feature, Senior Tour Guides were not able to see the assigned guides on a tour. This was rectified.
