The Settings Tab offers two switches which control Check-in events.
- Add check-in events
If enabled, a check-in event is prepended to all events type FLIGHT. The Location property is set to the airport of departure. An alert is set for Time to Leave. It’s duration considers actual traffic situation at that time, and can vary therefore. This alert triggers two reminders. The first one goes off 16 minutes prior the Time to Leave, and the second one 3 minutes prior.
Example: If the check-in event starts 11:00 and travel time is 30 minutes, the first reminder fires at 10:14 (11:00 -30 – 16) while the second one fires at 10:27 (11:00 – 30 – 3).
- Add alert to check-in events
If enabled, an additional fix duration alert of 60 minutes is added to the check-in event. This triggers an additional reminder to get ready. Taken above example, this reminder would fire at 10:00.
