In Scheduling, Open Positions, or Cargo Book, programs filter the objects in your workspace. A program can be created to include only the particular vessels, cargoes, and other types of objects that you work with, to limit what you see. You can switch between programs, each of which supports a different chartering desk and its objectives.
To open or close the Programs panel, in the bar on the right, click .
You can do any of the following:
Opening a Program
To apply filters to all list user views associated with the current program, enter parameters and then click Apply Changes.
From Date defaults to 2 weeks before today, and To Date defaults to 1 year from today.
In many situations, setting the date range to approximately 2 months before today through 4–6 months from today will include most open positions.
For Open Positions, new and old TC vessels appear in the schedule based on their Delivery and Redelivery dates. If there is any overlap with the date range filter, the vessel will appear.
Vessel/Cargo Match Expression: Enter a custom expression.
Keep shipments together: Select to keep Cargoes with the same Shipment No. together. If one of the Cargoes in a shipment cannot be scheduled for a particular vessel and time, then none of the Cargoes in the shipment will be scheduled.
Hide canceled voyages: Select to hide canceled voyages from the schedule.

The following fields enable you to define data that appears in Scheduling:
