Based on feedback on the weekly work of the service, a decision will be made about the end of the test and the public launch of the project.

A general browse though the features, this app seems very nice, however I do have a few questions before I decide to buy it:
1. In stead of drilling down, is it possible to create the tasks etc. and later group them into a higher level?
Yes. You can freely copy and paste parts of the diagram, transferring them between different levels of the hierarchy. This can also be done automatically, but at the cost of loss of schedules.

2. Is it possible use custom pics for the blocks in Diagrams?
Yes. An object can be supplemented with a graphic image from the image library on the device. If the object is large enough to accommodate the image with a reasonable reduction, it will be shown in a blank area of the object.

3. Does a created file sync across devices?  Although I prefer using any NAS drive, but public cloud drives are also acceptable.
Yes, the selected diagrams can be synchronized by means of iCloud, but with some limitations. You can also export diagrams and load them to the application on other devices.

Iterative process management is a whole science. If everything is done properly, the application will become greatly more difficult in mastering, and it is not the easiest anyway Smiley

So far, I recommend to arrange repetitive processes by copying diagrams and restarting them, in fact it is a simple and effective technique, which has a number of advantages.

It's pretty simple — uncheck the completion mark for the first objects of the first diagram, and all the schedules will be removed at once. If you start a project from a single object, then the schedule of the whole project can be controlled by the schedule of this object.

I am glad that you liked inShort, hopefully, your projects will also be satisfied with the program.

If during passing User guide you accidentally damaged it and cannot move on, use the option “Restore the Guide", it is available in the application settings.
9  General Category / inShort / Re: Resource Overloading? on: February 13, 2017, 10:04:29 pm
In your case, you can use the following trick, create two work resources for yourself, and for each of them assign a calendar that does not overlap the other. For example, from morning till 4pm you are doing one project according to one calendar, and according to the other calendar from 4pm you are doing the other project, or move calendars apart by day of week.

When you change the calendar, the application takes into account what time was specified. If initially the natural time in the natural calendar was specified, the application tries to keep the time frame of the period, if working time was specified, the period varies in accordance with the efficiency of the assigned resources, while maintaining a constant amount of work.

Thanks for the info, I’ll see where the "mysterious" diagram on the construction of the Nautilus (which in turn is also a mysterious artifact) could appear from.
11  General Category / Bug reports / Re: Undo button doesn't seem to work on: February 13, 2017, 08:36:09 pm
Yes, you are right, the Undo capabilities in the application are very limited, I’m working on it.
12  General Category / Bug reports / Re: Fixed start date changes when analysing diagram as a project on: February 13, 2017, 08:29:22 pm
In inShort, the actual schedule is considered the most reliable, as it is made based on actual events. Therefore, in the presence of the actual schedule the planned schedule is “adjusted” for actual.

I recommend to change the start date in the actual schedule to the real one (or most likely), and then when analysing the diagram the plan will start from that date.
13  General Category / F.A.Q. / Re: Buying assets with a finance agreement on: January 04, 2017, 04:55:02 pm
The second option is preferable, it captures the essence of the deal more precisely. It is not necessary to open a new account for each such case, it is quite possible to have a general account that keeps all the small loans.
14  General Category / F.A.Q. / Re: Small items with potentially long active periods on: January 04, 2017, 04:54:21 pm
In such cases you can act flexibly. If you bought a lot of different small things in a tools store, you can take into account a certain average active period for all at once. However, if you specially went for scissors and bought them separately, enter a record for the entire putative reasonable period of time of their use, there’s nothing wrong if you have a record that you have an old pair of scissors, in the end, you specially spent your time on them.
15  General Category / F.A.Q. / Re: What to do if you haven't used the program for awhile on: January 04, 2017, 04:52:39 pm
There are no opening balances in the application, when you adjust the account balance, the program automatically creates a corresponding transaction that changes the account balance. When you enter earlier records you will need to reduce the amount of the corrective transaction, so that the balance remains unchanged, or, alternatively, you can enter a corrective transaction with the opposite direction and the same amount that you entered, but with the service type.
