This topic will show users how to set up automation defaults for their flight planning package. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

Automation Defaults tab

Use the Automation Defaults to create automation profiles and add or edit a list of automation events for that profile. You can have multiple profiles and apply a profile to all flights or to a list of flights.

You can select a default profile, using the Profile Name field,  in the Airline Code Parameters FOMS screens. If you select a default profile all flights use the selected profile. You can use the Automation Profile Name field in the Input Defaults WebFOMS screen to automatically add an automation profile to a flight if the records match. You don't have to use profiles, you can leave the Name field blank and automation will work for all flights.

This topic will show you how to view an existing automation profile and how to create an automation profile and add events into it.
