I have been playing with the new logbook function in version 3.14.2.  I think that it is a very useful addition to SD.  I have tried to load some of my recent flights from the cloud, but I encounter an unusual message.  For example if the flight duration is, say, 1:10 and I edit the Logged Time to, say, 1:20, I receive the message "The logged times you have entered are less than the flight duration. Are you sure this is correct?".  I ignore the message and save the entry and all totals are fine.

Hi George, the page warns you if you've stated the total time is 1:10 but you're logging 1:20. Perhaps we need to change the terminology we are using, because where we say Flight Duration we actually mean blocks time really. Does that make sense?

Tim, I think I have discovered what the issue is. When I don’t log off blocks and on blocks times SD takes my take off and landing times and puts those in the total time box. When I log the off blocks and on blocks times then no warning messages are given.

Yes, quite. In the absence of blocks times SkyDemon autopopulates the flight times (because that's all we have) but you are of course expected to edit where necessary.
