Input Action

There are two types of actions in the action panel: input and output. This article is focusing on input actions. 

Inputs can be in many forms from single number to ranges (low, base, high values), to tables of numbers.

When we selected an input action, we see a screen in the Workspace area where Question Mark icon, Edit Input icon, and Toggle History icon are shown as seen in the screenshot below:


When you click on the Question Mark icon, a pop-up box appears which explains more clearly what kind of information is being asked of you. For example, in the screen shown below, ‘Time to Start Value Proposition Phase’ means, ‘How much time from base year does it take to start the first phase.’ If ever there is confusion on what exactly a particular value being asked is, this icon can immediately be used to gain clarity. By clicking on the icon again, the pop-up box will disappear.

In order to add a comment besides a given information, you can click on the Edit icon, a comment window will pop up for you to add the comment.

Once done, this comment can be viewed on the workspace screen in place of the icon where you clicked. You can then Save or Reset the screen by choosing either option from above.

By clicking on the Toggle History icon you can see the previous changes made on that input along with all the comments, the time when the change was made and the person who made it.
