Issue List Window

This document describes use of the Issue List Window. It assumes that you are already familiar with issues in general. If not, we suggest you read the Issues Overview.

At any time, you can review a project's issues by displaying the Issue List. This can be invoked by selecting "View/Issues Window..." in the Main Menu. or by pressing the Issue button in the Main Toolbar.


Figure 1: Issue List Window

The Issue List Window floats above the main window. You can manipulate the main window while it is displayed. Most of the window is occupied by the Issue list. It shows a list of all issues for the project. The following columns are available:

Status -  This column displays an icon showing the status of the issue.

Description -  This column displays the issue's title.

Author -  This column displays the author of the original issue (Created By). Other users may have added activities to the issue but this is the original issue author.

Posted -  This is the date and time the original issue was posted. Posting is used in a collaboration environment to create a discussion thread for an issue.

Asn -  This column will display the assignment icon: if any drawings, measurements or annotations are assigned to it. Otherwise it will be blank.

The list can be sorted by any column. Simply right-click on the column heading and select the sort sequence. You can also change the columns displayed by right-clicking a column and selecting Insert Column or Delete Column. You can add a column to the end by right-clicking above the vertical scrollbar.

The buttons across the top of the window are used to create, edit, review and audit issues.
