Logbook: Design and Layout
The Logbook tab in Helm CONNECT Jobs is the easiest way for your crew to log their work and provide instant transparency between your assets and the shore. It provides a central place to capture operational and billing data quickly and see key information from throughout Helm CONNECT, including who's onboard as well as recently completed and upcoming work.
On the left of the tab is a chronological list of the asset's event and activity logs for each 24-hour period. By default, the list displays just event and activity logs, but the "Show All" filter will show completed items for that period as well, including forms, checklists, tasks, corrective actions, component activated/deactivated records, and crew on/off records. Strikethrough indicates clearly when an entry has been deleted. The calendar tools above the list make it easy to look back at previous entries either one day at a time or by selecting a specific date, and a handy Today button returns you quickly to the current logs.
You can configure specific event types to appear automatically on the Logbook tab each day. These daily logs act as reminders, and move down into the logbook as soon as they've been logged so you can quickly see if they've been addressed for that day.
On the right of the screen is the widget pane, which provides a quick view of what's going on in Helm CONNECT:
- Today: Displays the first three items (checklists, forms, tasks, corrective actions, or planned activities) due today or later. Clicking an item opens it right in the logbook so you can work on it immediately.
- Overview: Displays the asset's current open items, including the total number of open items (checklists, forms, and tasks), the number of planned versus unplanned tasks, and the number of overdue items (checklists, forms, and tasks). Clicking the Overview widget takes you to the Onboard > Overview tab to see more details.
- Upcoming Jobs: Displays the next three confirmed jobs assigned to the asset with start dates/times that fall within 24 hours of the current time. If there are more than three upcoming jobs for the asset, clicking the "View more" button will allow you to view them in the default space.
- Current Crew: Displays the names and positions of the first ten crew currently onboard the asset. If you have permission to the Onboard > Personnel > Crew tab, clicking a name in the list will open that crew member's profile on the Crew tab. If there are more than ten crew currently onboard, clicking the Show All button will allow you to view them on the Onboard > Personnel > Current Crew tab.
