Tour FP won't load to Cigar Box
« on: April 19, 2019, 06:30:41 PM »
Hi Norm, good to be flying again 8) but Cigar Box didn't buy my charter flight for leg 1 of MFC0009 :( it went in the logbook though.  So I can't get details downloaded for leg 2.  Wonder if you can make it good for leg 1 and make my cigar box happy ??? thanks :)

Charter for a tour leg won't work cause the correct flight # for the tour has to be generated from within the tour detail page itself.   

Go to that tour and generate a bid.. and mark down the flight# that is generated. I might be able to sub your charter for the tour bid if I have the correct flight# it provides you. (Bid right now there has no been no bid generated.   So get that 1st tour bid generated and send me that generated flight #. 

(This system is totally different whereas I, even as admin, am unable to create flight bids in the tour module without being signed on as that user).   Here is the tour flight leg process:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure for loading a Tour Flight: / Flying / Completing tours/tour legs:

1. From the list of tours that appear on the Active tour page: (via the Tour Center tab), choose the tour you want to fly. (Best go in order as each tour is a continuation of the previous tour).

2. On that tour, The 1st leg will be open for you after joining. Select that flight - which create a "bid" on it.

3  Press "fly leg"

4. Log into Cigar Box and go to Main > settings then remove the check mark on Search by flight number. (This enables direct bid loading into Cigar Box).

5. In Cigar Box - Press the "Get Flight Data" button and the correct flight as per your bid should directly load and populate all the fields for the flight leg details in Cigar Box.

When your sim is ready start flight in Cigar Box. When done, file the pirep for that tour leg..

6. When you are ready to fly the next leg, go to the tour you are flying and the next leg will be open for you to fly (bid). and so forth until all the legs of that tour have been flown/completed.

7. After all the legs of a tour have been flown, the completing pilot will receive the corresponding tour award.
 

Ok.. Try to generate that flight# and let me know and I'll try something, ( Or send me your password (email) and I can do it when I'm signed on under your name)


I'm trying John.. lol

Ok tried it John but  can't get around the sequence - flight was filed before the bid was generated so the leg won't complete. I sent you an email.
