I am new to the program but am already running into issues.  I keep getting locked out of changing the schedule.  Short of deleting all my work (that would really annoy me).  I seem to not be able to change the schedule at all.  In my particular case I asked the computer to analyze as a project.  It than changed all of my dates (without asking) and when I noticed and wanted to change them back it locked me out.  Please help I need the schedule to be fluid.

It would be most true that it was.

Thank you for the appreciation of the application and for a good question. and inShort complement each other, inShort is more convenient at the stage of elaboration and personal research of the project, then the initiative is intercepted by where the teamwork and interaction of the project participants is available.

To transfer a project to, you need to create the project export file in the WFL format in inShort, which is easily imported into
The entire process usually takes less than a minute.

You can always ask for help here or by e-mail, usually within 24 hours I try to give an answer (if it is not so, just duplicate the letter).

Special thanks for understanding, if inShort can be developed on my own, then in the case of I need investments for development.

The program is amazing. As I build out a process for management of our projects one goal would be to have other team members participate as they execute their portions of the project. I assume this part of what does?

Will InShort projects import directly into

There is a substantial learning curve and I am many hours away from partial mastery. It is akin to learning a new language with mechanics coming before true understanding. I am hoping to avoid tons of development leading me into a corner and needing to start over. Perhaps the intuitiveness of the product will help prevent that.

Is there any sort of a consulting service to help lead us down the path?

Thank you very much for this amazing revolutionary product. It is a game changer on many levels. I really like the subscription based approach for as we need to support continual improvement.

How long will it take? I have destroyed my Workflow Diagram for the third time  Cry

Thanks for solving.

In the normal course of a project, a folder is used only once to put the project into it. All other nested diagrams must be inside other processes and resources. This is quite normal if a business process associated with a resource is nested in it (Answers 1, 4, 5).

When you split a project into separate diagrams, you sort of lay out the workspaces, which operate with a limited set of resources and must be explicitly represented on the diagram. This separation of the project itself is an important part of planning, in this way you differentiate the levels of competence, detail and responsibility.
Thus, everything that is needed for a process/resource should be represented in the diagram or should be in the diagram embedded in the process/resource (Answers 3, 6).

Do not limit yourself, everything that makes the business process clearer and can be done in the application should be done (Answer 2).

So I am following steps 1 through 10 of the "Building A Diagram" checklist of the iOS version 5.5.31 of inShort, and am currently at step 5 ("Fullness of Resources"), according to which I must draw links from the resources available on the diagram to the processes that use them. Step 5 implies, at least for me, that both objects are lain on the same nested level.

Currently, my final goals, initial resources, interim goals and processes are ALL inside separate folders (five total folders). My understanding is that folders are non-actionable objects, just like comments. The reason why I placed these objects in folders is for sake of having a tidy diagram. Obviously, there's no way to link the objects with any object outside their folder. Perhaps I'm mistaken? However, please take into account that, according to step 7 ("Layout), if a diagram has more than 20 objects, I must group contextually related objects into an object of the .... and here's the keyword ... APPROPRIATE type with a nested diagram.


1.- Can a resource pack be used instead of a folder for grouping common resources or common processes without mixing them? Does doing this allow me to link a resource with its corresponding process without actually drawing the link?

2.- Am I being to damn tidy at the expense of taking advantage of inShort's full functionality? Please answer with brutal frankness.

3.- Must I always make sure all processes and resources are at the same nested level of the diagram as long as they are contextually related to each other?

4.- Is it appropriate for a resource pack "A" to group common processes and for resource pack "B" to group common resources?

5.- In other words, is it inappropriate to drill inside a resource pack so as to nest within it a diagram of common processes?

6.- What if the nested diagram of common processes is devoid of common resources because said resources are nested elsewhere, inside another resource pack where they await a link to their corresponding common process? Is that inappropriate.

Thanks so much,
