How do I Track Deadheads?

Tracking deadheads or "Positioning" in LogTen Pro X for Mac, iPad or iPhone, is quite easy! This feature is built into our software for ease of use.

Step 1: Log It


All you need to do is to change the flight type to Positioning (the U-turn image). You can even enter duty times and a pay rate to track duty pay for commuting if you are lucky enough to be paid for commutes.
You may need to enable the Entry Type to show under the Flights section by going to LogTen Pro>>Preferences>>Flights check the box next to Entry Type

Step 2: Create a Smart Group for Easy Filtering


There isn't really a step 2, but you can go a step further and create a smart group to filter just your deadhead flights. The following smart group shows all the deadheads.

Mac

On the main Flights tab tap the + button at the bottom left corner and select "New Smart Group", then configure as pictured.
