DTS Status: User Interface Software Update Scheduled for 1800 ET on 1/23

(updated 1/23/18)  Now that the federal funding has been restored, the DTS User Experience (UX)/User Interface (UI) software update will be implemented at 1800 ET today, January 23, 2018.  At this time, all users will have access to the new DTS homepage, privacy page and document listing and the redesigned reservation screens will be available to those users in the limited launch user group.  All UX/UI screens are available in the Enterprise Web Training System (EWTS).  As planned, the redesigned reservation screens will be available to all remaining users not in the limited launch user group on February 2, 2018.

This DTS software update is the first of a series that will modernize the look and feel of the Defense Travel System (DTS), and improve navigation and usability.  It will bring new graphics and an improved layout aimed at making it more user friendly, easier to navigate and view reservation options, and to track your progress in building a travel authorization. 

Note:  Personnel whose organizations use the DTS Import/Export feature, meaning their travel orders are created by an order-writing system (e.g., AROWS, NROWS), will continue to use the legacy itinerary, reservations, and expense screens in DTS until further notice.

To get a better understanding of what is changing, the following resources are available:
