EnterOnOffBlocksTime Transition Action

This action is useful for tracking the on blocks time of the aircraft after arrival or the off blocks time before the departure of the aircraft as a separate routine. These details may have an important role in building up parking charges therefore it may be necessary to track this as a separate step in the handling workflow.

Example of handling workflow using this transition:


Configuration options:

OnOffBlocksMandatory=None; (Default) None of the fields are required to have a value. In the arrival screen, the parking section fields are not required.

OnOffBlocksMandatory=OnBlocks; This setting requires the user to enter an on-block date/time after the aircraft has arrived so that the on-block fields are filled in accurately. This setting pre-fills the current date and clears the time part (if any) so users are required to enter a time.

OnOffBlocksMandatory=OffBlocks; This setting requires the user to enter the off-block date/time. Before the aircraft departs, both on-block and off-block time fields can be filled in accurately. This setting pre-fills the current date and clears the off-block time (if any) so users are required to enter a time.

OnOffBlocksMandatory=Both; This setting requires all parking fields to be filled. Before the aircraft departs, both on and off block time fields are required. This setting is expected in the handling depart screen to enforce the on/off block times were entered. This setting would not clear the time parts (if any) were provided during the handling workflow.
