This article will cover:

  • The setup of service template conditions; and

  • Service template use cases

___________________________________________________

Conditions support the automation application of services in legs and trips. Conditions options are:

  • Account, Account Type

  • Aircraft Category, Aircraft in Fleet, Aircraft Tail Number, Aircraft Type, Aircraft Tag

  • Arrival Airport, Arrival Airport Classification, Arrival Country, Arrival Region, Scheduled Arrival time

  • Contact

  • Departure Airport, Departure Airport Classification, Departure Country, Departure Region, Scheduled Departure Time

  • Regulatory Type

  • Trip Type

All condition options are applicable to the creation of a trip through the client portal either on the initial create or when applying additional information once the trip is in the main application. An initial travel request in the client portal contains the Account, Tail Number, Departure and Arrival City. When a portal travel request is submitted, if conditions are met the service will automate in the trip when added from the deal.

Note: The client portal has an option to automatically 'create trip from request.' If the option is set for the approved user, the trip creates automatically and all matching service templates will automate.

To understand how Conditions function it is worth remembering that the three rows; Name, Operator, and Value act as a statement. In this example, Name is Arrival Country, Operator is Is In, and Value is Canada. The Condition (statement) being made here is; when arrival country is in Canada.

This template could be applied as: When arrival country is in Canada the crew needs to file CANPASS.

Conditions can be applied to a Service Template to create a specific template.

In this example, if the departure region is South America OR Central America AND the arrival airport is KMIA, KFXE, KPBI, OR KORL, this Service Template applies and will auto-populate your trip.

To create this Service Request in the reverse, you will need to create a new Service Template.
