.: Registration Recall Center Open

We know things happen, and for one reason or the other, you just can't find that registration code to install Logbook Pro on your brand new high speed computer.  If your order was placed after August 14th, 2003 when we opened our new e-commerce store, you can simply login to your account (click My Account) and review your orders and view the registration information retained with each order.  However, if your ordered Logbook Pro years ago, proof of purchase was required to regenerate key codes.  We've taken the extra steps to help you and prevent repeat purchases of Logbook Pro by creating our new Registration Recall Center (RCC).  Enter your e-mail address, click submit and all orders under the registered e-mail address will have keys instantly generated and e-mailed to the e-mail address entered.  Please refer to our updated policies for more information.

.: New Electronic Refer-a-Friend Program

One of the highest requested items over the years has been to move to an electronic referral system as the system of printing out referrals was too cumbersome and for the "I want it now" Internet delivery system, the delay in the ordering process was not acceptable.  We've listened and we are proud to announce our new high-tech refer-a-friend system.

Available only to registered customers, from within Logbook Pro 1.9.5 and later you will now see a Refer-a-Friend button on the toolbar, as well as available from other menus from within the software.  If registered, you will be taken to a page where you can sign-up to receive your promotion code.  It's that easy!  Once your code is e-mailed to you, which is instantaneous on registration, you can then e-mail your friends, put it on our Logbook Pro Brochure, etc. and upon checkout, your friends will see a Promotional Code box on the payment screen where they can enter the code you provided.  At checkout your account will be immediately credited with a referral and at the end of the month, be paid for all referrals for the month.  It's that easy, click, get code, send out, make money!  You asked, we listened, we acted!  We hope you enjoy the new system and it makes it easier for you to spread the word on this great logbook solution.

.: Use Efficient Data Entry Available in PDA's

For those proficient in Logbook Pro on the PC, you are well aware there are numerous features to help make logging flights quick and painless.  Features such as double-click auto-entry, autofill, saving recently used items in selected logbook fields, auto-duration calculations, and much more.

We've built in the same powerful data entry tools to help make flight logging on your PDA just as easy, if not easier.  Auto-duration calculations based on Takeoff to Landing or Out to In (as configured in Tools...Options), Autofill -- a system where depending on the TYPE selected, when the Duration changes, configured fields will automatically be entered with the duration, custom fields entered as specified.  There is yet another powerful feature we call "single-click" or "single-tap" more appropriately, data entry.  Enter the Duration value by either typing in the value or using the up/down arrows, then any other field that you tap into will automatically have the Duration value entered.  Tap in the Approach fields and a 1 will be automatically entered for that approach.  No need to page through numerous screens to find one field that requires an entry, use the Go To... page navigator and only go to the necessary pages, enter your flight data and click the save icon!  It's just that easy!  Now don't be logging your flights while taxiing! :)

.: How to give Logbook Pro as a Gift

Want to give one of the products from our online store as a gift?  It's easy!  When selecting a product, Logbook Pro for example, you will see the option to enter a Registration Name.  If left blank, the software will be registered and key code provided for use by the billing name.  However, if you enter another name in the Registration field, you will be issued a key code registered in this specific name.  For example, if John Doe wants to buy his wife Jane Doe a Logbook Pro Professional Edition, he would go to the store and view the Professional Edition product here.  Enter "Jane Doe" in the Registration Name box then click Add to Cart.  That's it, that software product will be custom registered for the gift recipient.  Want to buy multiple Logbook Pro copies, all registered in different names?  Follow the same steps, each time you Add to Cart that specific registration information will be associated with the product added.  Give the perfect gift for your aviation friends, help them take the pain out of flight logging.
