Section 'Users' Users in Leon - the full list of crew members and other departments members

In Leon, you can manage Users in many ways. If you are an admin group member you can decide about user's group, endorsements or ratings. However, everything starts with adding a new user to the system.

Go to a section Settings > Users and there is the list of all Users. The list can be filtered by: All (both active & deleted users are displayed), Active (users with access to Leon only) or Deleted (users with no access to Leon).

You can also use order indicators placed next to: Name, Surname, Code, Login, Email, Status or Last Visit Date to change the order of displaying users.

A field 'Search' allows quick finding of a particular user by either his name, surname or a code.

The User list can be exported to excel by clicking on the icon. The excel file contains the basic information available in user quick edit pop-up as well as the user status.

Leon does not monitor expiry date of endorsements for the freelancers - no warnings will appear in OPS panel, when assigning freelancer to new flights.

It is recommended to enable that function only to users with read-only privileges.

This option is NOT available for the Users with Admin rights due to higher security exposure.

Anonimization of Users

Deleted User - OPS view

This functionality is created as part of the process of adhering to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (General Data Protection Regulation).

It is now possible to permanently anonimize and delete Users from Leon.

The process is as follow:

  1. Go to Settings > Users.
  2. Edit an User you wish to permanently delete.
  3. Mark an User as Deleted by unticking both checkboxes in 'Account restrictions' section of the profile: 'Can log into Leon' and 'Active' and click 'Update' button.
  4. Edit the same User again. Click on which is located at the bottom of Edit User page'
  5. You should get a pop-up window with the following message: 'Do you want to permanently delete & anonymize data for this contact? This action is irreversible!'. Clicking 'OK' will permanently delete the User data.

Once the User has been deleted the following areas will be affected:

  • User Profile will be permanently deleted from both Settings > Users and the Phonebook.
  • If User was assigned to any operation (Flight, Positioning, Office), instead of User Code, there will be a letter -D- and in the Tab CREW you will see Permanently Deleted instead of a Name.
  • Deleted User will show as -D- in the reports that show Flights with this Crew Assigned, for example Custom Flights List Report.

To check who permanently deleted user you can use a button CHECK PERMANENTLY DELETED USERS in top-right corner - insert deleted user's code and click


Anonimizing an User is permanent and irreversible. Once the User data has been deleted it cannot be reverted.

User signatures can be automatically added to the documents (in Documents Manager) and emails (Email Templates).

The first step is to upload a scan/photo of the signature to the User profile - Full User Edit > 'Basic Information' tab > 'Signature' subsection.

The signature scan/photo needs to be uploaded in .png format and named signature, i.e. signature.png

Signature tag used in 'Email templates'
Signature tab used in 'Documents Manager'

Once the signature is uploaded to the profile, it can be applied to the templates:


The template needs to be switched to HTML version.

The following tag needs to be inserted in the place where the signature of a user is to appear:

{% signature %}


Either of the below tags can be used in the place where the signature of a user is to appear:

  • <signature />
  • {% signature %}

Both examples are presented in the screens on the right-hand side.

Two-Factor Authentication

An additional factor authentication is an option available to each user, which enables functionality that requires a combination of two separate factors of identification in order to log into the system. Besides regular login credentials (operator code, login and password) the user has to obtain 6-digit authentication code to log into Leon. This functionality is a measure of additional security of the user account.

Enabling the two-factor authentication mechanism:

  1. Mark the checkbox Two-factor authentication in the user's profile and confirm by updating the page.
  2. Check your work email INBOX for the new email from Leon. The email will include the change of password as well as the link that will allow you to pair the mobile device with Leon via Google Authenticator app.
  3. Download a mobile app Google Authenticator (available for iOS and Android) or similar and create an account.
  4. Pair your app with Leon by using the QR code generated via “Pair your mobile device with Leon!” link received in an email.
  5. Log into Leon as usual - when the pop-up window requiring authentication code comes up, use the code generated by the app.

Please make sure the clock on the mobile device is setup correctly and is synced with the internet time server. Any difference in the internet time and device time will result in authentication failure.

It is possible to mark two-factor authentication for all the users at once. To do that, you need to go to the ' Settings' > 'General Settings' section and mark Force two factor authentication for all users checkbox. The checkbox is unticked by default.

Each code is valid for 60 seconds only. After this time a new code will be issued. Make sure to enter the code and confirm before the 60 seconds period passes.

An Operational Multi-pilot Limitation allows marking a pilot who does not fully meet the requirements for a Class 1 medical certificate and has been referred to the licensing authority. The Pilot is assessed whether the medical certificate may be issued with an OML ‘valid only as or with qualified co-pilot’. The OML for Class 1 medical certificates may only be imposed and removed by the licensing authority.

When you tick this checkbox, Leon will allow this Pilot to operate an aircraft in multi-pilot operations only, if the following conditions are met:

  • Pilot is not flying with another Pilot with OML imposed
  • Pilot is not paired with a pilot who has attained age of 60 years
  • Pilot is not flying in a single-pilot operations

If one of the conditions is not met, Leon will display a warning:

Crew member (HOT) Mark Hotel on leg no. 1 has OML but does not have a co-pilot fulfilling all the necessary conditions:

  • Crew member (PAP) William Papa has attained age limit of 60, or
  • Crew member (GOL) Julia Golf has OML as well

User settings

User settings options for personal view of data

Here each user can define preferred settings of system appearance.

What you can define here is: displayed date format, airport codes (IATA or ICAO - the system will still recognise both formats when other than default is entered), displaying of status of leg info on tool-tip, using Local Time as default time instead of UTC and automatically changing “To” date on the flights list when 'From' date is changed.

In other words, if you shift the starting date of selected time period, ending date will be also shifted to maintain the length of this time period.
