Note: In order to build lists, you must first log in. Click on the "Login" menu option on the right side of the menu. Once logged in, start a new list by selecting the New Companies menu option.

New Companies
This screen allows you to start a new company. The Filters at the top allow you to select which book/pdf, Country, Company Type, Period, Motivation, and/or Skill to filter by. Changing any of the drop-down lists will refresh the page narrowing the list down to the filters you choose. You can select values from one or all of the Filters. In addition, clicking on a column heading will sort the table by that column, though selecting another filter will then override the sort.

The 'lock icon' in the black column indicates when a company is locked and will need to be purchased to use. You may still click on the list and see its company diagram. Lists with no lock have either been previously unlocked, or are free to use.

Selecting a list that is locked will open the company diagram page, and a "Buy Now" button will be displayed in the upper left corner.

Clicking on either the red Buy Now button at the top, or on any of the platoon names will display the purchase screen.

You have two options when purchasing Intelligence Briefings (company diagram). Buying a single briefing or buying all briefings in the book. Lists are USD$1 each with a 25% discount for choosing to unlock an entire book or compilation.

Forces Of War
Forces Of War When a single briefing has the ability to create multiple companies, all companies attached to that briefing will unlock for the cost of one. For example, in the image above, unlocking the "FALLSCHIRMJÄGERKOMPANIE (1.)" company will also unlock the "FALLSCHIRMJÄGERKOMPANIE (4.)" company as they both use the same briefing. The price to unlock an entire book is based on the briefing in the book, not the individual companies themselves (as more than one company can sometimes be created from a single briefing).
To purchase a single Intelligence Briefing, click the Buy Now button on the left. To purchase all the Intelligence Briefings in a book, click the Buy Now button on the right. Either option will take you to PayPal to complete the transaction. Once you return from PayPal, the briefing(s) you chose should be unlocked. If they do not unlock immediated, please wait a few minutes as the automated payment confirmation response from PayPal may have been delayed.

Saved Companies
The Saved Companies page works in a similar way to the New Companies page, except that it display only company lists that you have already created.

The PTS column displays the current Points of the company.

You may have multiple copies of the same company list. Giving each one a unique "Custom Name" will help identify which is which. The "Custom Name" is set from the Company Diagram page, and will be display here in the "Description" column.
