Project Folders

NetPoint® makes use of a project/folder-based structure, which organizes your schedule files (such as reports, templates, simulation data, recovery files, and iObjects) automatically together. Instead of opening and closing schedule files, you will be opening and closing project folders, which then load into NetPoint whichever schedule file they contain.

All new schedules must have a project folder created for them. This is done automatically when saving a schedule for the first time. All legacy schedules need to be imported and converted to projects before they can be opened. Once converted, however, schedules are opened and saved just like before, with only minor differences to the interface.

This section details instructions for the following:

  1. Navigating in windows explorer
  2. Converting files to folders
  3. Opening and unzipping
  4. Saving and renaming
