How to Use the Flight Filters
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use flight filters.
By using flight filters, you can find flights or customize your list of displayed flights, as well as determine the amount of information displayed.
There are a wide range of filters available that let you choose how you want to display information. You can also save your selections for later by using the Smart Filters feature.
For more information about Smart Filters, please watch the tutorial Smart Filters for Flights.
REMEMBER: If you are having problems finding a flight or viewing information, please check your filters and the configuration of Roles and Privileges. If you have been assigned a role that incorrectly limits your access, please contact your administrator.
FLIGHT FILTERS: (0:52)
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, some users may have limitations on the flights that are displayed.)
4. To filter the flights, click on the filter icon in the top right-hand corner of the page.
5. Here you can select which flights are displayed, such as today's flights, the past “X” number of flights (ex: 100 flights), flights from a past number of days, weeks, or months. You can also select a specific date or range of dates, and you can search directly by the flight ID number, it is also possible to select more than one flight ID, by separating them with a comma.
6. In the Flight Filters window, you can also select the information to be displayed in the main Flights Module. Choose by checking or unchecking the boxes next to the different options available. It is also possible to select all boxes at once.
7. Below the “Information Displayed” section, you can filter by Base. Here you will see all the Bases you have created, again you can select the bases to be displayed by checking/unchecking the box next to the Base name. If you select one or more bases, the aircraft and instructors that do not have any base assigned will not be displayed.
8. If you continue to scroll down, you can filter by flight types, by checking/unchecking the corresponding boxes. (For example: solo or instruction).
9. Below “Flight Types”, you have the option to filter by “Aircraft”. Select “View all aircraft” to view all aircraft, or view only the selected aircraft by clicking the option below and using 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. Similarly, you can filter by 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. You can hide flights without take-off, view only IFR flights, view only favorite flights, view only flights without evaluation, and view unpaid flights by checking or unchecking the corresponding boxes in the “More Filters” section.
12. Finally, you can select Local and XC flights. You can check off Local and XC flights, Only Local Flights or Only XC flights.
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. You will be able to view your saved filters by clicking on the “Smart Filters” button.
14. Otherwise just click “Save” and your filtered flights will be displayed.
