Welcome to the SNS Logbook. The SNS Logbook is the official log of SNS operations activity. You must have a valid UCAMS user id and password to use the logbook. You may browse entries as well as compose and commit new entries from modern web browsers. Please see the release notes for more information about the requirements and version history.
Log into the logbook using your valid UCAMS user ID and password. Please log out once you have finished to free resources on the server and to maintain the security of your account. Each session will be logged out after 30 minutes of inactivity.
The layout of the main window consists of the main toolbar fixed to the top of the page with the content below. For most pages (Browse, Bookmarks, Recent and Notifications), this content is typically a list of entries appropriate to the page. Initially, the entries are displayed in a collapsed summary list. When expanded, an entry is displayed fully formatted and with an entry toolbar in its header.
To browse entries within the currently selected logbook, press the Browse link in the main toolbar. A browsing bar will be displayed and below that a list of entries for the current day. Each such entry is composed of a header (time stamp, title, author and several other entry attributes) followed by a summary (first few lines of unformatted text). From within this view, you can display the full entry (including full formatted text, images and attachments), display entries for different time ranges, filter the currently displayed entries, search the logbook for entries matching your specified criteria and sort the entries by the selected property.
By default, entries are sorted chronologically by the time stamp of the posting.

|My Favorite Logbooks||One of the entry's logbooks matches any one of your favorite logbooks which you selected in the Favorite Logbooks Editor.|
|All Logbooks||Matches any entry.|
group:physicswill match entries where the group contains the word "physics". As a quick reference to determine the key for a particular entry field, simply place your mouse over a field in an entry and the tooltip will indicate the name of the field. Below is a table of field keys. Note that matching is case insensitive.

To display notifications, press the Notifications link in the main toolbar. Notifications display pending daily orders (operators only), required reading and email notifications. Daily orders and required readings require the user to acknowledge that they have read the entry. If an entry's title is striked through then this entry has been marked obsolete by operation management. These obsolete entries will remain in the list until the user has logged into the logbook system a few times so that they will be aware of the status change.
The Call List displays your current group membership and allows you to view the members who belong to a specific category. To view your Call List membership as well as the Call List membership of others, press the Membership link in the main toolbar.
From this page you can also manage subscriptions to logbooks and categories to which you are not a member by pressing the Edit Subscriptions link at the bottom of the page.
The Impacted Area Matrix page displays a matrix of impacted areas versus roles and the associated assignments in the cells. To view the impact areas, press the Impact Areas link in the main toolbar.
Bookmarks provide a convenient way to maintain a list of entries of particular interest in a logbook. Personal bookmarks are maintained in the database for each user. Bookmarked entries are displayed chronologically just as when browsing entries.
Whenever you view an entry, that entry is cached and you can see a list of the fifteen entries you most recently viewed. To list recently viewed entries, press the Recent link in the main toolbar.
You may compose and publish an entry by pressing the Compose link in the main toolbar. If you have any saved drafts waiting to be published, you will see a list and have an opportunity to continue editing them or create a new entry. If you have no saved drafts you will immediately be directed to the edit page (or the favorite logbooks editor if you have not specified any favorite logbooks). A tab panel will be displayed allowing you to compose, preview and publish your new entry (or draft if you selected one).
The message board allows operators to post and edit messages that get displayed on SNS web channels. Only operators have privilege to edit such messages. Some channels allow the operator to add and delete messages and to edit both the message title and the message body. For other channels, operators may only be able to edit the message body, but not the title and they won't be able to add or delete messages. The logbook will automatically display the controls and fields as appropriate to the user's privileges for the specific channels.
