Logbook Pro requires five columns or it will consider the row invalid and delete it. The columns are Date, Type, Ident, Route, and Duration (or SIM). However, if you want to deviate from Logbook Pro's minimum requirements, you can go into the Options...Flight Log on Logbook Pro (PC) and clear the bottom most checkbox to disable the auto-purge routines.
Many times my pairing will start with a 2 hour stby period before the first live leg. The pairing I import from the company website will have this on it and should be tracked for pay and duty purposes but not imported to LogBook Pro as a leg...so can i make a user defined classification that will not import this as a leg in that sequence? i.e.,[Standby]...or what would you suggest.
