Using Projects

For a video tutorial, please see: Projects - managing projects

Create new project

Projects reflect the way you work and are used to organised cable schedules.  Once you create a project, you will be able to access its cable schedule and select and work with cables.

To create [add] a new project click the 'Create New Project' button, fill out the project number and name.  When you create a project, you are automatically the project owner.  As the project owner, you can complete/update project details, add contributors to the project and transfer ownership. 

Update Project

You can update projects by clicking the update button on the projects menu.  On the update page you can change the project number and description, set default values or update the logo. 

Default values set for temperatures and soil thermal resistivity are used when a new cable is created.  Although, they can also be overridden in the cable itself.  If you know the actual site conditions, you should enter these, otherwise, by selecting a country from the drop-down list, the default values will be populated with the reference conditions given in the IEC standards.

The logo appears on reports, and you are free to change this and upload your own logo if you wish.
