An option 'ADD DUTY' shows a drop-down box with all duties (pre-defined in a section Settings > Duties Setup), select a needed one and fill a new pop-up window in with details. If the duties are set up Per Acft Type in Settings > Duties Setup the added duty will apply for all tails of that type.
You can also add multiple crew members to the same duty by selecting relevant names in the drop down list in the editing window.
Choice of date frame available in 'ADD DUTY' function:
You can now add duties which cross midnight. Be aware that in the old crew roster Leon will show such duties on the day of the duty start.
Leon shows times in BT - Base Time - base/bases are defined in a section Settings > General Settings. Every crew can be assign to a certain base and that base's timezone shows on top of the page (between date 'TO' and an icon 'NOW').
An option 'QUICK ADD DUTY' is a quicker way of adding duties. Hover the mouse over it and Leon will show all pre-defined duties along with their colours. It is more suitable for 'OFF' types of duties, as Leon does not show a pop-up window where you can add details - Leon adds duties with default times (previously defined in a section Duties Setup).
Click NOW on top of the page to get displayed a green line with the current Base time (base defined in Settings).
It is possible to add duties on a particular aircraft registration or type (depending on settings in Duties Setup panel) and once it's done, Leon will automatically assign crew, when a new trip is added (in a section OPS) - as long as an aircraft, an airport and the date of the flight & duty match.
When defining such a duty, select an aircraft and mark a checkbox Auto roster.
Once a duty on the aircraft is added on a particular date and at the particular airport, Leon will assign crew automatically to the trip added in OPS panel - see an example on the screenshot, on the right, showing 4 steps of how Leon auto-roster crew to flights.
