Frequency Asked Questions (FAQ)

Respond to ...

Q: How do I start? There are no menu buttons on a screen!
A: Most of actions and operations with a project is done via context menu (right mouse button click or "menu" button on a keyboard). This is to create a free workspace, which is especially important when a project contains dozens of variants estimated by dozens of parameters. Start your project by creating new variants (Enter button), renaming them, and then estimating them by specific criteria (F9 button).
Q: I cannot find right criteria for the variants. What should I do?
A: Try to select a specific quality that is applicable to all variants. For example, if you're looking for a job, include salary, workhours, social benefits into the list of your criteria. Note, that criteria can be measureable (numeric) and non-measureable. Please find more on criteria selection in a User's Guide (Basics - Criteria - Choice of criteria page).

A: Move your mouse on a required point on a horizontal axis called "Time". A plus sign will appear on a mouse pointer. Click left mouse button to create an interval break. You may move it to the left or right wherever you want.
Q: Why Report window doesn't show time statistics?
A: To view the time report, first click Time Analysis button on a main project menu or press F7. Then click Report button or press F8.
Q: I can't edit my estimates. What should I do?
A: Click right mouse button on a criterion name below the variant. Select Estimate change authority option. Remove all checkmarks in the left column and click Accept. In case if you opened somebody's project which has restrictions on data change you won't be able to edit anything.
