Send-It-Up Information Page

What is Send-it-Up?

Send-it-Up is a new companion application to Bid Central that does many things.  The most important of those is automatically uploading your Bid Central bid script into PBS.   You no longer have to enter your bid manually into the Navblue interface.  Send-it-Up will do that for you.  Click this link to watch an overview video of Send-It-Up.

But that isn't the only feature of Send-it-Up.   You also now have single-click download of the pairings .zip file right into Bid Central.  With one click from the Send-it-Up dashboard the pairings in your category (for the month you specify) will be downloaded so that when you start Bid Central they are waiting to be processed.

Finally, Send-it-Up offers single click access to the ICrew main screen, Open Time, Travelnet, Jumpseat booking,  your Paycheck,  your past, current, and future schedule.  It will also automatically upload all the previous month's actual flying into the Pilot Flight Logbook. Send-it-Up will also automatically populate the other pilot name(s) on the F/A briefing form and Pilot Segment Forms in BC after retrieving your current or future schedule in cases where those specific pairings have been added to your BC Flight Calendar.

Here are some features I expect to add incrementally:  (1)  Automatic Jumpseat booking at the earliest possible moment as I believe I have cracked the code on this capability.  (2)  Automatic entry of scheduled and actual flying into the BC Flight Calendar when you update your current and future schedule.  (3)  Ability to automatically process any made-up pairing in open time in Bid Central and test for legality in the Flight Calendar.  (4) Integration of commuter flights scheduling/jumpseat flight selection in BC with Travelnet.  (5)  A subscription service for open time and the Icrew Swap board.  (6)  Additional capability I haven't yet thought of that I think will add to the user experience.

How much does it Cost?

Because of the tremendous effort required to develop the bid script upload  and other capability, capability, Send-it-Up will be a separate add-on subscription to Bid Central at a cost of $40/year.  Considering the time you will save not having to manually enter your bid every month (not to mention, no mistakes) this is a bargain.  Furthermore, there will be a one-time licensing fee for the IMacros Player that is installed with Send-it-Up.  This player acts as the interface between the Send-it-Up processing algorithms and Navblue PBS, and all other Internet functions.  This player appears on your screen as the "Send-It-Up Execution Browser" and it is very similar to Internet Explorer in appearance.  The one-time cost for the IMacros Player license is $99 + tax.  You can purchase the player license on the Send It Up registration page.  Just include the payment with your subscription.  You will need to purchase your player license for Send-it-Up to work properly.

After Installation:

After installing Send-It-Up, right-click on the Send-It-Up icon and select "Properties".  After the Properties window comes up, click the "Compatibility" tab.  Then check the box next to "Run as Administrator" and click [Apply].  You can now click on the Send-It-Up icon to start the application.  You must enter the IMacros player license for Send-It-Up to work.  To enter the IMacros Player license do the following: (1)  Click on the IMacros desktop icon to open.  (2)  Click "Buy Now".  (3)  Click "Already a Customer"  (4)  Enter your Player License Code.  (5)  Close the IMacros Browser.  You must also configure the Send-It-Up browser from the Configuration tab.  Click the button and follow the instructions.

VERY IMPORTANT:  When you perform that NavBlue Login Test or Upload your Bid Script, make sure that no boxes are checked on the NavBlue Synchronization Screen.  You may have to open NavBlue in your browser (just copy the web address) to permanently uncheck the boxes.  If any boxes are checked, the login in test and bid script upload will not work!

Makes pairing download more robust because Delta doesn't keep the same naming convention month-to-month so SIU must try a couple of different historically based formats

Rev 20

  1. Fixes a problem identifying the correct A/B pairing in re-schedule situations when getting the current schedule.

  2. Fixes a problem identifying the correct date when getting DH flights and putting them on the DH flight list.

  2. I continue to work on making the "List on Deadheads" script work properly.  I can test it only when I get a new deadhead on my schedule so it's still a work in progress.  Given the latest update, it may or may not work completely.  If you have a deadhead and try it, let me know.  As far as I know, this is the only remaining "open" issue with the currently deployed functionality.

  2. Fixes an issue in which SIU was not extracting all of the deadhead flights into the DH flight list after getting your current schedule
