one of the reasons we like and utilize the icon for credit card, is it contains data, Airfare data, Auto Rental Data, now there are more clicks to view this data, rather than hovering over a symbol
Normally it is easy for me to tell if an employee is abiding by company policy & booking through our TMC because the icons indicate the flight, car and hotel and the icons are attached to the expense. In the new UI how can I tell if there is a reservation linked to the expense for air, car and hotel? How can I drive compliance of using TMC for all bookings if I cannot tell if the reservation is linked with a quick glance. Might just be a training issue on my part. Would appreciate any insight.
My initial thoughts on the new UI, are that I like it. It seems to be more user friendly for people who are not finance minded, or used to item level details. I have done a preview of the new UI with all of our groups and only a few questions came up. Maybe they'll be released when it's live in September, either way, here they are in no particular order.
Is the plan to wait on the new UI to be turned on for everyone before you update the problem areas? Or are they being worked now and released each month?
Hello Fellow Concur Admins!
I for one am glad to see the end of the icons. Although I find them useful, and can tell with a glance what is what, it has been incredibly painful to help my users to understand them. Having actual words will be much easier for them. I will, however, miss being able to hover over them to see the details.
The improved hotel itemizations are AMAZING. Unfortunately, it's a bit late, as our users complained so vociferously about it after Concur implementation that management opted to remove the requirement entirely.
A couple of things I do NOT like...
So far, those are the only things I have a real issue with. I was planning on rolling out the new UI to our company admins next week, but without the mass edit option for expense lines, I think I'll be holding off.
I've seen quite a few comments about this mythical fall release, when many unavailable features will become available. Can anyone tell me what the date on that will be?

The revised full availablity date is January.
My sincere apologies for the delay in responding. Here is what I can offer your list at this time (and do please keep them coming):
We continue to release updates with each month's scheduled product release.
@toriehigh, glad to hear you like the improved itemizations! (What can we do to win your people back?!)
Now, as far as your concerns are concerned:
Mythical fall release. (I love it - sounds like an album title or an awesome Spotify playlist.) There is a timeline in the Next Generation Expense User Interface FAQ. You can also speak with your Concur account manager.
