How to Use the Flight Filters
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the flights' filters.
By using flight filters, you are not only able to find flights or customize your list of displayed flights, but you can also determine the amount of information you want to be displayed.
There is a wide range of filters available to let you choose how you want to display information. You can also save your selections for later use by using the Smart Filters feature. For more information about Smart Filters, please watch the tutorial Smart Filters for Flights.
FLIGHT FILTERS: (0:37)
Let me show you how the flight filters work:
1. First, log in to your account.
2. Go to the Flights Module.
3. All flights are listed here. (Depending on the Roles and Privileges, users may have limitations on the flights that are displayed.)
4. To filter the flights, click on the filter icon on the top right-hand corner of the page.
5. Here you can select the flights displayed, such as today's flights, the past “X” number of flights, flights of the past number of days, weeks, or months. You can also select a specific date or range, and you can search directly by the flight ID number, select more than one flight ID by separating them with a comma.
6. Here you can select the information you want to be displayed: total time, block time, airborne time, hobbs, tach, route, crew, lessons, map, and remarks. You also have the option to check all the boxes at once.
7. You can filter by bases. Here you will see all the bases you have created. If you select one or more bases, the aircraft and instructors that do not have any base assigned will not be displayed.
8. You can filter by flight types, such as solo or instruction.
9. You can view all aircraft or view only the selected aircraft. Use the drop-down list to select the registration number of the aircraft. You can add one or several aircraft, and delete the selection by clicking on the “X” next to the registration number.
10. You can filter by the crew, with the option to view all pilots or view only the pilots you select in the drop-down list. Again, you can delete a selection by clicking on the “X” next to the name of the crew member.
11. Finally, you can hide flights without take-off, view only IFR flights, view only favorite flights, and view only flights without evaluation.
12. Just click “Ok” and your filtered flights will be displayed.
13. Now, if you want to save the filter, just enter a name for your filter selection under “Smart Filters”, at the top of the pop-up window. This way you have quick and easy filter access in the future. You will be able to view your saved filters by clicking on the “Smart Filters” button.
ROLES AND PRIVILEGES: (2:59)
Please note, Roles and Privileges will define the access each role has to the Flight Module. To manage this, follow these steps:
1. Go to the Users Module.
2. Click on the Roles and Privileges button.
3. Select a role from the drop-down list.
4. Click on the Flights tab.
5. Check off the box to view the Flights Module.
6. Review the privileges you want to give each role. For example, you can give the selected role the option to view just some bases, so any user assigned the selected role won’t be able to view all flights, just the ones from the selected bases. You can give the privilege to view all the flight information except the remarks.
REMEMBER: Please check your filters and the configuration of the Roles and Privileges if you are having problems finding a flight or viewing information. If you have been assigned a role that limits your access to information that you should have access to, please contact your administrator.
