Click on Crew > Planning Overview in order to access the planning overview. This customizable page allows you to display monthly planning of your crews. This section is particulary useful for scheduling crew roster and activities.

Each cell reprensent a day for a crew. The main “symbol” and color of the cell represent the main activity type (or Duty type) for this day. The smaller icons reprensents others activities scheduled this day for this crew.

To add an activity, simply click on a cell and fill out the form. You should always indicate an arrival airport and a departure airport, as the optimization system always needs to know the nearest airport for each crew.

Clicking on any cell allows you to create/edit roster and activities.

It is also possible to quickly create a roster or an activity by draging the desired period on the planning overview:
