The Add/Modify Entry screen allows the user to add or modify a schedule (for an aircraft or an instructor). The screen will be slightly different depending on how you logged on. The following controls are provided:
Name - As a normal user, your name and phone number will be filled in. The name cannot be changed, but a different phone number may be entered. If you are logged in as one of the office staff, instructor or maintenance user, you can make reservations for other users so the name field is now a drop down list of all users. As you select a user, their default phone number is placed in the phone number field. The phone number may be changed as desired.
Phone Number - Shows the default phone numbers for the user. The phone number may be changed as desired.
Full Description - Enter any notes about the schedule in the description field. This field may be left blank if desired.
Instructor - If you are scheduling an aircraft and wish to schedule an instructor for the same time, select the instructor from the drop down list. Set to none (the default) if you want to schedule just the aircraft.
Date - Select the date for the schedule. The default date is the date selected on the main screen. The date may be changed to any date desired.
Time - Enter the starting time. The default time is the time selected on the main screen. The time may be changed to any time desired.
