How to use FFXIV Squadron.
To start, fill the Squadron form with your current squadron's data. For each recruit, the class, the level, the race, the current experience points and the chemistry are needed, when available. Once this is done, do not touch these values again unless you did a mistake and want to fix it. You can reorder the recruits by dragging their recruit number, and exclude them from the results by unchecking the checkbox.
Next, in the Training form, fill the physical, mental and tactics fields with the current bonus you have in game, and set your squadron's rank too. Once this is done, do not touch these values again unless you did a mistake and want to fix it.
You're almost ready to start. Set the informations of the mission you want to do in the Mission form, and hit the Resolve button. The application will try to find for you the best combinations for this mission and will display the results in place of this message, in the Results form. If you are lucky, you'll maybe be able to start the mission without further training, but that won't be always the case. If one or more trainings are needed, the application will show you what to do.
When you finish a training or a mission in game, you get experience points, and the bonus of the squadron is modified, in the case of a training. These actions can be replicated here, allowing you to keep your squadron up to date easily.
When a training is completed in game, simply select it here, in the Training form, hit the Apply button, then the Confirm button (double verification to avoid mistakes). The bonus of the squadron will be modified accordingly, and experience points will be awarded to all of your recruits, based on the training you selected. If you want to apply the experience points to only 1 to 4 recruits (because the others are in mission), click on their icon to highlight them before you confirm the training.
When a mission is completed in game, simply fill the Mission exp. reward field with the amount of experience points received, select the 4 recruits to whom the experience points will be applied, by clicking on their icon to highlight them, and then hit the Apply button next to this field. The 4 selected recruits will receive the experience points.
You have at your disposition 5 tabs for different squadrons. Use them to perform various tests without altering your current squadron. Click on the Squadron # links at the top of the page to navigate through the tabs.
You can also Export your squadrons (to save them, copy them to another tab or share them for example) and Import squadrons (previously saved squadrons or squadrons shared by your friends, for example).
