Working with design issues

All projects will have dozens of issues raised against, all of which have to be managed in various ways. For example, opening them, and reviewing and editing their details.

Once an issue has been created you can do several things with them from the:

  • Issues screen – here you can view the issues themselves, see their related viewpoints, edit their details.
  • Dashboard – here you can add them to Issue Sets, and get an overview of all the current issues, open the Issues screen.

What can you do in Issues?

The Issues screen is where you can access and see the details of your project issues. You can also edit them and add comments. As there are likely to be many issues, you can filter them by several fields including StatusType, Issue set, Assignee and Issues or any combination of these. 

What does the Issues screen look like?

The Issues screen is made up of three main areas:

  • The Issues list.
  • The open issue’s details.
  • The Viewpoint snapshot and Model viewpoint panels.

Viewing issue information

To see an issue’s details, click on it in the list to open it. The information you can see in the list is:

  • Title – the name given to the issue when it was created.
  • Assignee – this lists their name if one’s been allocated.
  • Due date – if one’s been allocated.
  • Set – the name of the Issue Set the issue belongs to. This might not be allocated.

If you have lots of issues, you can filter these individually or in combination of any of the following:

  • Status – the options are All, Done and Closed.
  • Type – the options are All, Error, Warning, Information, Clash and Other.
  • Issue set – choose an option from the list of current Issue Sets.

Reviewing and editing issue information

This part of the screen is divided into two sections. One gives you an at-a-glance view of the issue’s details in the following sections. Clicking on any of the icons takes you to its information. The other part of this screen shows the following:

  • Details – this shows information such as the assignee name and Issue set the issue belongs to. You can edit all of the information here via the Edit icon. This means you can, for example, re-assign the issue, change its status and give it a Due by date.
  • Viewpoints - this shows the objects shown in the Viewpoint snapshot and Model viewpoint, which you can show and hide.
  • Activity - this shows the activity history and  any comments that have been made using the Add comments button.
  • Related items - this lists all the items that relate to the ones shown in the snapshot. You can edit the information here via the Edit icon. When you do this you will see a list of all the models you can add, you can also remove any that have already been added.

The Viewpoint snapshot and Model viewpoint panels can be closed as required. If you select the object in Model viewpoint, you can navigate it in the same way you would in the viewer including adding sections, measurements and adding a new comment with a viewpoint.
