Starting in LogTen Pro "Dakota", long-haul flying just got easier to log. The Relief time field will now automatically be deducted from the Total Time field.
Additionally, on iOS, there are 3 quick time percentage time split buttons to make logging even faster. You can select from 2/3, 1/2, and 1/3. If those percentages are not what you need, then you can manually enter any value into the Relief field and it will still auto-deduct from Total time.
- Please note: the quick percentage time split buttons are not editable and they are only on the iOS app.
Logging Relief on IOS:
Let's take a look at a sample flight from Los Angeles - Hong Kong:
The first step is to make sure your logbook is configured to display the Relief field. If you do not see it in your logbook go into any flight and select the Action button (3 dots upper right). Then Configure Fields > Configure Section (under Time) > Relief > select ON
The Relief field will display 3 quick percentage time split buttons. For this example, we will select the 1/3 button. When selected, Relief populates 1/3 of Total time and enters the value in the Relief field. Simultaneously the Relief value will deduct from Total time. Additionally, all of the auto-fill times (SIC, IFR) will also reduce to match Total time
If for any reason you need to undo the relief time, just delete the time from the Relief field and all the other fields will revert back to their previous times.
Logging Relief on Mac:
The first step is to make sure your logbook is configured to display the Relief field. If you do not see it in your logbook go to Preferences > Time > Relief > select ON.
On the Mac app, manually entering any value into the Relief time field will be auto-deducted from the Total time field. All the auto-fill values (SIC, IFR, etc) will also be deducted to match the new Total time.
If the Relief time is deleted the other values will revert back to their previous times.
Deselecting the Relief function:
If for any reason you do not want the Relief field from auto-deducting Total time (such as entering Balance Forward entries) you can disable this feature.
- On iOS go to More > Settings > Time Calculations > Deduct Relief from Total Time > Deselect.
- On Mac go to Preferences > General > Deduct Relief from Total Time > Deselect
