The 'compare answers' feature allows showing on any input form page in a project that has multiple designs (calculations) the answers given in another design on the same project. This allows, for example, comparing inputs between your baseline and optimized designs. You can also copy entries from the other design, in case you notice something is missing for example.
How do you compare design inputs?This feature can be used by clicking the green 'compare answers' in all of the queries. After clicking this you can select from which design you want to compare the answers with, e.g. baseline and improved design. The compare answers feature shows you:
- The resource name
- Quantity and unit setting
- Any comments you have added.
- The transportation settings (distance + method),
- The service life
- The localization setting.
You can also add answers from another design by clicking the green 'add to input', which copies the row of data from the compared design into the currently used design.
