VortexLog 3 Beta
News 25 Mar 2010
To all pilots who have hung in there with VortexLog, thank you for your patience. I am releasing VortexLog 3 in a Beta testing version to you - really the only thing left to do is update the Video Tutorials (no big deal, right?). Here are a few of the improvements:
As I said before, the video tutorials are not yet ready, but you can check VortexLog's Wiki out at http://vortexlog.intodit.com for detailed instructions. As always, if you do not understand something or you run into any bugs, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I want to take a moment to thank all of you, pilots from around the world, who use VortexLog. I hear it over and over, VortexLog is by far one of the best pilot logbook programs in the web today; thanks to you for all your support and ideas that keep making for a more user-friendly, full featured logbook. I have a lot of work to do, many suggestions to move forward on; position and hold because we're about to move to the next level.
Happy Flying! Isaac R.

Drag n Drop Interface
News 21 Jan 2009
Merely a day after I introduced the use of graphs in VortexLog.com, I'm very pleased to announce yet another technology for you to take advantage of. You can now drag and drop to organize columns and headers. Try it, just mouse down on a header and drag it to a new location within the headers. Pretty neat huh? I'll be looking for more ways to implement this and other "newer" web technologies as always to keep meeting and exceeding your expectations.
Updates 21 Jan 2009
Here is yet another great new feature that I love and so will you. You can now view and compare your flight experience with the help of our new charts or graphs. It's very simple to use and can be customized to compare different aircraft types, "N" numbers, types of hours, and time spans ranging from 1 week to your entire career.
Try it out free. Don't delay to get your account.

Safe flying everyone,
Import a file
Updates 18 Jul 2008
The capability to import files in .CSV format was added. After uploading the file, it is read and every single cell is then added to a sepparate entry in the database. This enables you extract,view and manipulate the information as if you had entered it in your VortexLog pilot logbook manually. There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to formating the spreadsheet on the pre-upload phase. For more details, go to the "Help" section of the program.
