I want to track ths usage time of my gluwplug, but can't fit it into some och the categories.

Have I missed something or is this a missing feature?

What I do for glow plugs is create a maintenance procedure call "Replace Glow Plug". Every time you replace a plug in a model you create a maintenance log and select this procedure. You can then search back through your logs and determine the last time it was replaced.

When you select the maintenance log list for an aircraft you can set a filter to only display the logs that contain the "Replace Glow Plug" procedure. This will give you a list of all the dates when the glow plug was changed.

I also create a maintenance schedule for changing glow plugs. I set mine to 100 flights. You can then look at your schedule and you can immediately see how many flights you have before you next scheduled change.
