Functions are missions that can be generated on-the-fly functions, where a step-by-step wizard walks you through setting up the mission directly in the Dronelink mobile app at the location you are at, with no web app mission planning required.

Some Public Repositories only have functions, such as the Dronelink On-the-fly repository. Some functions are included in your account by default. Advanced users can customize and create their own functions.
