"Facilities" refers to the various agencies that are available at any given airport. These can be defined in N-OC and attached to a Station (airport). Facilities are very useful as quick access information for the user when using N-OC, and also for easily communicating with the station facility.
To access Facilities, click the Facilities button:
In direct relation to Facilities, you have the following that needs to be set up:
- Facility Attribute
- User Group.
The user can click the facility from Station facilities, or Mobile view to send an email or Type B, call them by phone or VOIP, etc. The user needs User Group rights to Stations.
To make this visible in Mobile, these users need access to the User Group: Station. Each Facility Type is defined to which User Group it should be visible.
