Major actions

The actions contained below have to do with options, tasks and activity costings.

Delete an option, task or activity costing

To delete an option, task or activity costing, click on one or a number of checkboxes on the left of your list of item - whatever you want to delete. Click the Delete item(s) button.

Important! If you choose to delete an option, then all related tasks and activities will be deleted. If you choose to delete a task, then all related activities will be deleted.

Copy an option, task or activity costing

To copy an option, task or activity costing, click on the 'Copy' link next to the item. Find where you want to move the item (if a task, find the option, if an activity costing, find the task).

Don't want to move it? Click the 'Copy, but don't move' checkbox. Click the Apply button.

Show costings for years

To see costings for a specific year, choose the year from the Year drop-down. Then click Apply.

To see all costings, click the All years link.

Note: This is only available if you chose 'variable' (costs change from year to year) when setting up your constraints.

Reorder option, task or activity costings

So you want to move around certain items in the list?

First, click the 'Reorder' link next to the item number.

Next, change the number in the box that appears. For example, change it to 1.

Then, hit the Go link.

Option 2 will now be Option 1 and Option 1 will now be Option 2.

You can do this for all your options, tasks and activity costings.

Important! You cannot move tasks from one option to another. You cannot move activities from one task to another.

See details of options, tasks or activity costings

To see the details of any of the options, tasks or activities you've created, click on their name. This will open the right form. You can then change any of the info you've entered and save the changes (by adding the item). (This will save the changes made, not add the same item again.)

Show / hide tasks

Hide tasks (and just see options), by clicking the 'Hide task' link at the bottom right of the list. To see them again, click the 'Show tasks' link.

Handy hint! If you have both tasks and activities showing, you can hide them both by clicking the Hide tasks link.

Show / hide activities

Hide activities (and just see options and tasks), by clicking the 'Hide activities' link at the bottom right of the list. To see them again, click the 'Show activities' link.
