To get started, there are a few setup steps for configuring the aircraft meter, setting user authorizations and setting up scheduled maintenance items. See the following article for additional details:
Scheduled Maintenance Data Entry
Once the setup steps are done, you can start entering maintenance due dates (for Annuals, etc.) or times (for oil changes, etc.). The following article has instructions and print screens on entering and updating maintenance tasks: https://support.timesync.com/hc/en-us/articles/210257246-How-do-I-maintain-Scheduled-Maintenance-due-dates-times-
The maintenance time entries will need to be entered periodically. The following article explains the options for doing this: https://support.timesync.com/hc/en-us/articles/210257346-How-do-I-update-the-maintenance-meter-
Viewing Scheduled Maintenance Status
Scheduled Maintenance has multiple views. The Maintenance Status Board (pictured below) gives a nice summary view.
The Aircraft/Boat Status view is a nice resource specific view that is helpful in determining which aircraft/boats are suitable to schedule. The colored triangle on the schedule (image below) indicates the status (i.e. red for the most severe issues that may indicate a resource is down, yellow for medium level, and green for minor issues). Clicking on the triangle brings up the status page shown below. This page shows all future and overdue maintenance tasks.
The preflight (pictured below) is another resource-specific view that is helpful in determining if your scheduled resource has any issues that will affect your flight/sail. This view shows scheduled maintenance that is overdue or due within the next year or 200 hours.
Getting Notified about Scheduled Maintenance
Managers and crew chiefs that manage aircraft maintenance may want to set up email notifications to let them know when scheduled maintenance is due. Or pilots that regularly fly a particular resource may want to be alerted. Each user sets up their own notifications for the type of event for which they would like to be notified (e.g. Maintenance Due, Maintenance Complete). This assumes users are authorized as described in step 2.
