Reviewing flight desk assignments (for N-FP users only)

Link to eLearning

1       Introduction 

Reviewing flight desk assignments (for N-FP users only) 

In this topic, you learn how to adjust the display of flights on the map to show either only those flights assigned to a specific dispatch desk or to display all assigned flights. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

Desk assignments 

For airlines using N-Flight Planning (NFP), flights are assigned to dispatch desks in N-FP. You can view those desk assignments in N-Tracking. You can choose to view all flights or only those flights assigned to a specific desk.

All NFP users have access to the Desk Assignment option in their login dropdown menu.

Review the next steps to learn how to work with flight desk assignments in N-Tracking.
  

Users of airlines who have integrated N-FP desk assignment into N-Tracking can view assigned and unassigned flights using the Desk Assignment menu option.

In this example, the map is currently showing all tracked flights, including one with a caution alert.

Change the display to show only those flights (13) assigned to the MSPC desk.

Let's look closer at how the WARNING and CAUTION banners in the Flight list work, based on desk assignment.

Currently, all flights display on the map. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the All Flights dropdown button.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the DESK-1 list item.

None of the flights assigned to Desk 1 have any caution alerts, so the CAUTION banner does not display on the Flight list. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the DESK-1 dropdown button.

Interaction 1 Click the DESK-2 list item.

Desk 2 is managing flights that currently have active cautions and warnings. Consequently, both of those banners display on the Flight list. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the DESK-2 dropdown button.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the All Flights list item.

The Flight list displays all flights, those with applicable warnings and cautions in corresponding sections with tracked flights following later in the list.
