Commands used for writing, sending & receiving Unimatic e-notes.
Allows you to create a new enote.
Here you have a blank screen to begin composing your enote.
You must first give the note a title. Type an 18-character or less title just to the right of BLDNOT TITLE:/. Then press TAB four times.
NOTE: If you type a / symbol in your title, it won't work.
You can now begin to enter your text. You can keep typing and the computer will automatically put you on the next line. However, this can produce notes that are annoying to read like this one:
Here's a properly written note:
If you need to write more text, tab to the MORNOT: and press ENTER. You will get another page on which you may continue your note. When you finished writing your enote, tab to the ADRNOT: and press ENTER.
You'll then get the following address screen:
A couple of points on entering addresses:
Allows you to view the contents of your Inbox.
The above DISPIN screen shows the first page of notes currently in my Inbox. To view a letter, simply tab to the specific note and press ENTER.
A couple of points about viewing this screen:
Let's talk about REPLYING TO ENOTES:
The above note was sent to me by New Hire who is offering to trade his DEN turns for my SYD trip. In a case like this, the RPLNOT function can be very useful.
Tab to RPLNOT at the bottom of the screen and press ENTER.
You will then get a screen showing the same note again, but with RE: in the title. Go ahead and type in a blank area (or over the original note's text) your response:
*****WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER*****
Once you are finished, tab to REPLY TO AUTHOR and press ENTER.
If you know of someone special that may wish to make this trade, you can forward this note by tabbing to FWDNOT and pressing ENTER.
Don't start replying to the note until after you've tabbed to RPLNOT and pressed ENTER. This is a common mistake and will cause you to have to re-type everything all over again!
Allows you to display the notes you have previously sent.
The example above shows the contents of my Outbox. These are the notes I previously sent, together with the dates I sent them. You can also see the number of people each note was sent to and the number of people who've actually read the note thus far. Knowing if someone has actually seen your note is one of the advantages of the Unimatic enote system.
If you want more specific information about the note you sent, tab to the note (remember to tab to the area between the note number and the note title) and press ENTER.
You will get the following screen:
The above example is pretty self-explanatory. Simply tab to the action you wish to perform and press ENTER.
Displays a menu of commands pertaining to e-notes.
This is a fairly useless command for flight attendants, since we don't have the authorization to utilize many of functions on this menu.
See the "DIS*37449 FOR WHAT'S NEW IN E-NOTE" stuff? Tab to that you'll get some weirdness like:
"Nothing new today?" Huh?
