If you're a company administrator, you can restrict the creation of operational pilot/aircraft schedules by your users, based on adherence to custom currency definitions.
Turn on scheduling restriction
- Go to Account Tools -> Company Settings
- Check the box labeled Restrict schedule creation based on pilot currency.
- Click Save Settings at the bottom.
Linking custom currency definitions to scheduling restrictions
- For each custom currency definition your company has, you can choose to include adherence to that currency as a criteria for your users to schedule aircraft, based on what activities they plan to perform.
- For example, let's assume you have a custom currency definition called Night Cross-Country. You can disallow your pilots scheduling night cross-country flights if they are not current on the Night Cross-Country currency.
- To enable this restriction, edit the custom currency definition, and add the exact string [sch_restrict] to the Description field. Then, re-save the currency definition.
- After this is done, non-administrators will see a new section on the Schedule/Duty/Layover Entry screen, called Operational Parameters.
- When filling in the schedule entry screen, non-administrator users will check each applicable box in the Operational Parameters section.
- When the user clicks Save Schedule, the system will check adherence to each custom currency corresponding to the boxes checked by the user. For example, if the user checked the Night Cross-Country box under Operational Parameters, the system will make sure the user is current on the Night Cross-Country custom currency, before allowing the user to save the new schedule.
- If the user is not current on all checked currencies, the system will disallow creation of that schedule entry, and the user will receive an appropriate error message.
