Article summary

In this tutorial, we will add flight destinations, gate numbers, carriers, etc., to your system.

Using the tabs in the Assets section in the left-hand menu bar, you can manage your:

  • Airports - names and IATA and ICAO codes of destination and origin airports,
  • Gates,
  • Belts,
  • Carriers,
  • Check-ins.

Additional assets for your system can be defined in the Custom fields tab to create your fields. For example, you can create a custom field to track the manufacturer of your displays.

Using the built-in flight data feed, we are populating as many asset values as possible. Often, the flight data feed does not contain complete data - in this situation, you need to add the values (e.g., Belt codes) by hand using the functionality described in this tutorial.
