Introduction

The Advanced Totals / Previous Flight Times screen is used for:


When to use this screen

If you don't have any previous time totals to enter, and if you only need to view basic totals such as Dual Received time, PIC time, Rotorcraft time, MEL time, and so on, then you may not need this screen. The Pilot Logbook page has a Total line at the top and this may be sufficient for your needs.

Use the Advanced Totals screen when you:

Note that you can still view compound totals without this screen, by using the Filter button on the main Pilot Logbook. However, the Advanced Totals screen lets you predefine a list of compound totals you can view with a single click, whereas the Filter button on the Pilot Logbook screen is used for "one-off" totals.


Setting up your totals and entering previous times

Click "Advanced Totals / Previous Flight Times" from the Pilot Logbook menu, and click Define. You can define up to 50 individual totals, and each total can optionally have a "previous total time" associated with it.


Example 1

For a simple total like "total time in C172", select "Time in Type" from Category (A) and enter C172 in the text box. Leave the other categories blank. If you have previous time in the C172 that's not reflected in your ZuluLog flights, enter it in the Previous Time column.


Example 2

For a simple total like "total time in N514CG", select "Aircraft ID" from Category (A) and enter N514CG in the text box. Leave the other categories blank. If you have previous time in N514CG that's not reflected in your ZuluLog flights, enter it in the Previous Time column.


Example 3

If you want to keep track of a compound total such as "total rotorcraft PIC time" , select "Category" from Category (A) and select "Rotorcraft" from the drop-down. Select "Crew Role" from Category (B) and select "PIC" from the drop-down. As always, if you have previous rotorcraft PIC time that's not reflected in your ZuluLog flights, enter it in the Previous Time column.

Note that the column order doesn't matter--you could put "Crew Role="PIC" in Category (A) and "Category"="Rotorcraft" in Category (B) and it would work just as well.


Hints:


Viewing your totals

This is the easy part. Once you've saved your setup and any previous times, the Advanced Totals / Previous Flight Times will show you your overall totals for each line.

If you're a company administrator, you can view totals for others in your company by selecting their names from the drop-down and clicking "Calculate". Note that you'll see the totals that each user has defined for himself; you won't see your own definitions applied to other users.


Integration of previous total times into the Prev line on the Pilot Logbook screen

If you didn't enter any previous time totals when setting up your advanced totals, you can disregard this section. Also, if you just plan to use the Advanced Totals screen to view your overall (previous plus current) totals and you don't care about the Prev line of the pilot logbook screen, you can disregard this section.

On the other hand, if you want your previous time totals to appear in the Prev line on the Pilot Logbook screen, thou shalt follow these commandments:


Note in the chart below that some cells on the Prev line are sourced from more than one advanced total line. For example, the "Total Time" Prev line value comes from up to two lines you've created on the Advanced Totals screen: "Day Flight Time" and "Night Flight Time".


If you want this cell in the pilot logbook's Prev line to contain a value... ...then define an advanced total line with this in Category (A)... ...and this in Category (B)... ...and this in Category (C).
