Data Selection Modes

 

When you click on a New Selection button on the Data Selection page of any Report Designer, a form will appear showing all the selection modes available:

 

Selection Mode Form

Selecting any one mode will start the specific instance selection process. For example, if you choose the Individual cost items mode, the Cost Breakdown Structure form will appear, from which you can select the individual cost items you want.

 

Some selection modes require multiple steps to select a specific instance. For example, if you select Identification field as the mode, you will first have to select the particular field (unless there is only one, in which case the software will skip this step), then you have to select one or more entries in that field. If you select Risk impact as the mode, you may need to select a particular impact, then a cost allocation block if an allocation system has been set up, then one or more risk impact values.

 

The available selection modes are:
