movieIcon Importing and Exporting Trees and Parts of Trees Tutorial

This tutorial describes how to :

  • Cut and paste your whole trees or parts of trees between different counts of Releases in the same SCOPE database or different databases

This feature is useful when you want to re-use parts of functional trees , Data Lists or Notes from other counts or databases to minimise data entry. SCOPE will give you the option to copy across any nodes from other trees that are linked to the copied nodes.

movieIconImport Multiple Count Sessions from other databases or Releases into a Master Release Count Tutorial

This tutorial describes how to:

  • Import an export Count Sessions from one Release to another on the same database, or another Database such that an Organization can have a Master Database of Counts and have counters count on a copy of the baseline. When the Count is imported back into the Master database, it is merged with the latest Release of the Baseline.

The Import/export counts session feature allows:

  • Counts for 'what - if' projects that have been done at sometime in past and now approved to be imported and applied to a later version of the baseline.
  • Multiple counters to count Change Requests on the same baseline at the same time.  They export out the Release then set up their Count Session locally.  When they are finished counting they can export their Count Session and it can be imported back into the master.  This allows very fast counting of multiple CRs by many counters at the same time.
  • An Organization to have a MASTER Repository of all their counts that can be managed by an administrator. Releases can be checked out of the Repository and counts performed. When the counts have been checked they can be imported back into the Master Repository. They are merged into
  • the latest Release baseline, they do not overwrite it. This feature enables organisations to control the update of their Master Counts.
