How to set up Sling to use it with PaxFlow
Create 'Locations' for pickup assistance, drop-off assistance, each departure, each office area and each field area.
Create 'Positions' for the three main roles Driver, Driverguide, Guide. Any additional Positions which are not mapped to these roles will be recognized as "other".
Create 'Groups' in case you want to filter who is permitted to be assigned as Driver or Driverguide for certain vehicle types.
To do the initial setup, go to the Integrations section in PaxFlow Settings and select Sling.
API Key - This is required for authentication when using APIs to access the data. In case you are not able to find your Sling API key please reach out to Sling support.
The drop-down for roles will include all 'Positions' from Sling.
The drop-down for pickup, drop-off, departures, any field and office area will include all 'Locations' from Sling.
The "Who is permitted to operate vehicles of this type?" drop-down will include all 'Groups' from Sling.
Mapping for departures is done in the departure settings
The main positions can also be overwritten with other titles (used for certain types of vehicles) for example, Pilot, Captain etc.
Any position which is not mapped to one of the three main positions will appear in the other category
Field areas can have different names within PaxFlow from what the mapped 'Location' is called in Sling
