CQL (Checklist Query Language)

CQL is a simple but very expressive language for defining conditions that determine when particular checklist items are to be applied. It allows the translation of the operator's internal knowledge and operational needs into simple rules by specifying all actions (checklist items) needed to be done before a flight with certain attributes.

CQL condition edit pop-up window

The 'CQL' column will show the current status of the conditions for adding the items to the checklist automatically. There are three possibilities:

  • Disabled - the item is disabled and will not be automatically added to the checklist in any case
  • Default - the item is enabled and the default condition for adding the item to the checklist automatically is set
  • Custom - the item is enabled and the custom condition for adding the item to the checklist automatically is set

By clicking the field in the column, you will get an 'Edit CQL' window, in which you can:

  • Edit the condition - if the condition is met and the item is enabled ('Auto add to leg' is ticked), the item will be added to the checklist automatically. Otherwise, it will not be added automatically but can be added manually
  • See the default condition - to compare with the custom one, or restore it
  • Get access to CQL documentation, which describes the operators, fields and values which can be used to define the condition

Due Dates

  • Type - option to select the type of the checklist item between OPS and Sales

Below there are 2 examples presented:

Item requested

Once the checklist item is requested, the status in the 'Due date' pop-up window changes to the relevant status for this item. In case of the 'Handling (ADEP)' item the status is 'Requested'.

Additionally, the 'Request due date' is removed.

Item confirmed

Once the checklist item is confirmed, the item is removed from the 'Due Dates' pop-up window.

Configuring emails

The checklist item emailing option can be configured by accessing the 'Edit Email Configuration' window via icon in the 'Requesting' column.

The 'Email Edit Configuration' window contains the following:

  • Document Template - an optional setting that contains the selection of the documents set up in the Documents Manager and based on the 'Checklist Leg Item Document' template or the 'Checklist Trip Item Document', depending on the Checklist item being applicable per leg or per the whole trip.
