Using the new 'Smart CrewID Search' is a huge time saver for UAL PBS Instructors who are helping other pilots with monthly bidding. It saves time by auto formatting the contents of the 'Crew Id' field in Interbids when entering a pilots file number. You no longer need to have the perfect format of capital 'U' and 6 digits.

This extension adds a new button to the Interbids crew search screen: 'Smart CrewID Search'

Pressing the 'Enter' key has the same functionality as clicking on this new button. The old 'Search' button is retained in case you want to use the original search functionality.

It will also save time by immediately loading the pilots PBS Crew Info page rather than making you click again on the pilots file number once it has been found and then clicking yet again on the 'Proxy' button.

Actions for different 'Crew Id' entries:

  1. If the 'Crew Id' entry is blank, then pressing the 'Enter' key or clicking on the 'Smart CrewID Search' button should take you automatically to your own Crew Info page. This is a quick shortcut to your own bid screen.
  2. The number '1' all by itself should also take you to your own Crew Info page.
  3. Uppercase 'U' and 6 digits (normal file number format). Extension does not alter this as it is already in the correct format.
  4. Uppercase 'U' and 4-6 digits (e.g. U1234, U12345): digits padded if required (e.g. U001234).
  5. Lowercase 'u' and 4-6 digits (e.g. u12345): 'u' changed to uppercase and digits padded out if rquired (e.g. u012345)
