.: Logbook Pro History Area
We get e-mail from time to
time asking how to log items such as a Instrument Competency
Check and subsequently calculate a currency for this.
The History area is designed to track anything and
everything that expires: medicals, flight reviews,
exams. You name it; it belongs in the History area. To
add new History Items to track, click the Options button and
view the History area and add new items to the bottom row.
Once your expiring item is posted in the History Area, it
can then be used to build a currency. Take for example
building a currency to provide details and reminders of a
instrument proficiency/competency check. The first
step is to "log" that you completed one and tell Logbook Pro
when it is due to expire. Once this has been done, you
can then go to the Currency Editor, build a new currency,
click the far right lower bar that says "History Events" and
add the History item to your currency configuration.
Creating a currency including History events is easy and
useful, this is one area that you should not overlook, it
has great value and can keep you within regulations with

1.9.6 coming soon - New
Software development never
ends, there is always a way to make things better and
continuous improvement is our motto at NC Software. We
listen to all feedback, monitor message boards, listen to
customers, and continue to strive to ensure our aviators
have nothing but the best. We've been working on
another FREE maintenance update for our registered
customers, yes another free version since initial release in
1998. We take pride in top quality software, not the
size of our checkbook and in the next 1-2 months we'll be
releasing some new features and more tweaks in Logbook Pro.
If you know of any issues that need attention, please post
the issue on our
forums or submit a
support ticket for immediate review. We continue
to improve the reporting, one of the most important areas of
Logbook Pro, and we are looking at building a new system for
the MGOent binders. We know printing a duplex
solution to fit a smaller binder can be a frustrating
experience depending on your printer hardware and we are
looking at ways to improve this experience. We have
some new ideas and will be spending time over the next few
weeks to see if this is a viable solution to making your
printing easier. Again, please send us your
and we will continue to improve the software. We are
also hard at work on version 2 which will be in development
as long as necessary to ensure a top quality product with a
solid feature set. Keep the feedback and requests
coming, our ears are wide open listening to each and every
one that writes us.

.: SPAM - The Constant
Everyone is tired of waking
up to an inbox full of unsolicited e-mails and because of
this, everyone is having to take drastic measures to avoid
these e-mails. We use high-end technology both on our
servers and client machines to ensure the spam is filtered
out and your e-mails come through; but of course, we cannot
be sure this is the case with each and every e-mail.
Please use our forums or support center to contact us.
However, if not using the forums, we cannot be sure you will
receive our e-mail response. We have had a slew of
problems lately with AOL subscribers not receiving our
responses. Please be sure your ISP is allowing e-mail
from nc-software.com's domain so we can contact you in a
timely manner. Additionally, we cannot take the time
to respond to "middle'ware" tools that require us to visit a
web site and acknowledge e-mail we send to ensure we are a
valid sender. If you use such tools, please be sure to
allow our domain to get past these tools or use our forums

Electronic Refer-a-Friend Program ($10 per Referral)
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
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.
