Use the “Scratch Pad” While Reading the AD

Did you know you can use the “Scratch Pad” to record your notes while reading an AD that is listed in your Report?

The “Scratch Pad” is conveniently located to the left side of the AD document, so you can read the AD, and take notes at the same time.

Remember to click the Save & Return to Report button.

 

 

You will see that the text written in the “Scratch Pad” will transfer over into the Date/Hrs, Next Due & MOC (Method of Compliance) fields in your AD Report.  You can make changes to your notes at anytime, just remember to hit the SAVE button!

Recurring ADs

How do you know if an AD is Recurring, or not?

Look under the Recurring column of your AD Report:

      • Yes* – This means that the AD is recurring but a specific action in the AD terminates the recurring requirement.
      • Yes – This means that the AD is recurring.
      • If the recurring column is blank, this means the AD is NOT recurring.

These fields can be modified, so you can remove the word Yes or Yes*.

If the field is blank, but the AD is recurring to you, then you can type in the word “Yes” or even state the frequency, such as “100hrs”.  Be sure to click the green SAVE button!

If you want to view only the Recurring ADs, click the orange “Show Recurring Only” button.  When you are finished viewing them, you can go back up to the same button and click “Show All” to get back to the full Report.

If you’d like to Print Recurring Only, here are the instructions:
