For manually updated schedule

To be able to add a new schedule activity to your Avinode schedule, you need to create an Activity Type first. You can create an Activity Type from scratch by clicking Add on the Schedule - Activity Types page in Avinode, see below.  

  1. Type in a name of your activity type.  
  2. Select the Avinode Equivalent from the drop down list. (You can read more about each equivalent type below)  
  3. Pick a color with the color picker or provide a HEX code. It will automatically populate the Display Color field with the color code.
  4. If you have more than one activity type mapped to the same Avinode equivalent, you can select which one of them should be the default one, by ticking the Default Type checkbox. 
  5. Click Save

For integrated schedule

When sending schedule data from your Flight Management Software to Avinode, you will need to map the activity type names in your system to the equivalent in Avinode. This is how the search engine will know how to interpret your schedule data correctly, and know when your aircraft is actually available or occupied.
The first time your schedule data is sent to Avinode, all activities will by default be interpreted as Occupied. Therefor it's important to change the default mapping to what they really mean in your system. See the section below to find all Avinode equivalents explained.
