Allocating crew member to an AeroCRS user account
When creating a crew member in the system, you are given with the option to select a system user.
Allocating a specific system user to a crew member will affect the calendar view (you can read more about the calendar feature in the following article: Operational Calendar).
If we will take the following crew member for an example:

When this user account will login to the system and open the calendar, the calendar will only show him flights that he assigned to this crew member.
