This program is used to maintain the alias database. Aliases can be used for all types of addresses, including email. The address alias program will permit you to update information that is on file for each alias in the data file.
When the program is selected the input screen will be filled with a blank record and Command Line.
The modes available are:
ALIAS NAME: Enter the alias name up to seven characters.
ALIAS TYPE: Enter the alias type: SITA <SI>, ARINC <AR>, ATFN <AF>, email <EM>, fax <FX>, user <UR>(no longer required), printer <PR> (name of printer configured on the server, contact your IT department), <IN> Integration (sends data to 3rd-party integration) or alias <AL>.
ADDRESSES: Enter the address for each alias type added. If you key an invalid address the message Invalid User Address - Press <Enter>: is displayed. When you are finished adding alias types, press <Enter> on a blank field.
UPDATED: The date is automatically filled in for you in MMDDYY format.
INITIALS: Enter Initials of the person adding the alias.
This function allows you to edit an existing alias. Enter the name of the alias, and the associated addresses will be displayed, allowing you to add, edit, or delete addresses as you see fit. You may use <Ctrl>-E to escape to a confirmation prompt Information OK? (Y/N/Q) when you are done. Responding <Y> will save the updated record. Responding <N> will return the cursor to the first address for further editing. Responding <Q> will discard your changes and leave the record unchanged.
This function allows you to delete an alias from the alias database. This will remove the alias and all of its associated addresses from the file. If all you want to do is delete an address from a particular alias, use Edit mode.
Video mode allows you to view one alias and all of its associated addresses at a time. Use the up and down arrows to step through the alias database. Press <Enter> or <Q> to quit.
The input screen for Screen mode allows you to produce an alias report for a range of aliases sorted in alphabetic order by alias type. The default aliases are A to ZZZZZZZ. The default types are A to ZZ. The standard alias types are <SI>, <AR>, <AF>, <EM>, <FX>, <UR> and <AL>.
This mode functions in the same manner as the Screen mode, except that the report is directed to the system printer.
Enter <Q> from the command line to exit the program. You will then have the option of entering the next program menu number directly, or defaulting to the last used menu screen.
