Ability to flag aircraft as Interesting from VRS

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

Ability to flag aircraft as Interesting from VRS

Post by ProHill » Sat Aug 15, 2015 5:34 pm

Andrew,

Have you ever thought about adding the option to update an aircraft's "Interested" field in the basestation database from within VRS? This would be cool for those of us who use that data later in other applications. Use case: seeing an interesting aircraft track in VRS, mark it as Interesting so that it can be searched out later.

Thanks,

Andy

In a similar vein ... it would be nice if the Flights.UserNotes field could be exposed for reports. I often use it to note 'interesting' flights (delivery flight, Queen's birthday fly-past or just note routing for positioning flights or fixed callsign aircraft). I currently use sqlite tools to manually add the note and generate reports outside VRS but it would be nice if you could include the field on reports in VRS.

Not a biggie, just something to maybe add to "the list" for a quieter moment :)

I've added the user notes thing to the list :) Regarding setting the interesting field - the next release introduces the concept of admin users, after that gets released (hopefully around the end of the month) I'll be releasing a database editor plugin that lets admin users set a few database fields. At the moment that plugin doesn't let you set the interesting flag but it wouldn't be hard to add that.

Oo, I will get another coffee(s) then. It's worth waiting.
Shame that this (http://tracker.virtualradarserver.co.uk ... sue/VRS-73) will not be delivered in this version... :?

Hi Andrew,

Just installed the database editor plugin preview, and it seems to work great! I can now mark planes as interested, and it flows through to the exported data.

Cheers!

Andy
