- The Display Options field allows you to specify when the field must be displayed. The default is ‘Always’, but if you click the ‘Always’ text a dialog box is displayed which allows you to set the view rules for the field. For example, if you had a field for ‘Delays’ you may wish to display a ‘Description’ text box only when the ‘Delays’ field is selected.
- A preview of the flight records entry screen is displayed in the Preview pane. Use this to tailor the field options if required.
