Capturing Targets

You are here:
< Back

By default, the Targets Manager comes pre-loaded with a permanent target for the current state of the schedule. This can not be renamed or deleted and will update in real-time with the network, regardless of whether or not the schedule has been saved. This section provides guidance on capturing and deleting targets. Instructions are provided below.

Steps

Capturing a Target

  1. Click Tools > Open Targets Manager from the menu bar. The Targets Manager will open.
  2. Beneath the list, click New. A target will be added to the list, and the timestamp and most current data date (if any) will populate.
  3. Begin typing to rename the target and press ENTER.
  4. When finished, click Close. Any changes will be automatically saved.

NOTE: Targets can also be captured automatically by dropping a data date and following the prompt. In these cases, the data date displayed will be the one already existing NOT the one being added.

Renaming a Target

  2. Click the Rename button. You may also double-click the target to enter editing mode.

Deleting a Target

  1. With the Targets Manager open, select the desired target in the list.
