EMAIL NOTIFICATION OF NEW TRANSPORT REQUESTS

Postby Steve Foley on Tue Jun 29, 2010 1:17 pm

A new feature is available that will allow pilots to get automatic notification of new transport requests in their area. Some of you may have noticed this was turned on yesterday, but caused some unexpected emails. This has been turned off, but may be turned on individually.

To turn on email notifications, the pilots must go to the user control panel, select profile, and scroll to the bottom to the field labelled "Distance willing to fly one way:". This number is presently set to zero. Setting this to 100 will cause the system to notify you, through email, of any transport request that passes less than 100 miles from your airport.

This link should bring you to the profile page where you can change your options.

THANK YOU STEVE!! What a great feature for pilots who have been asking us if they can be notified of flight requests in their area.

Pilots, please take advantage of Steve's hard work and customize the perimeters that suit your flight requirements. If you need help in following Steve's instructions, please just ask, we will do our best to assist you.

Thanks again Steve, you are remarkable!

The airports database is not up to date. Your airport is still listed a 3M3. I'll see if I can add KFGU to the database.

EDIT: It should work now (I hope)

In my profile, I listed my airport location and set my flight distance to 200 miles. I haven't received any e-mail notices of new transport requests. Is this because no flights have been requested within 200 miles of my airport or because I haven't done something properly in my profile? Thanks for your help.

Elliott, I double checked and as far as I can see, you have entered your distance information correctly. However, there is presently a request that is originating in Frederick , MD, which is I believe where you are based, so you should have received notification of this unless you changed your profile distance after this request post was made? The request is dated July 15.

I would also suggest checking your spam or junk mail folder and adding the pilotsnpaws address to your safe email address file in case your ISP is rejecting the notices.

Let us know, we can research this further for you if needed!

You have posted in the wrong forum. Your transport request should be posted here viewforum.php?f=5

Good luck,

2. Puppies should be strictly quarantined for at least 2 weeks. Avoid mixing litters or mixing pups from different sources. Puppies should be kept in an area that can be easily disinfected. All other dogs coming in contact with the pups should have a current DA2P-CPV vaccine.
