A user with Write rights is allowed to update the planning and attributes. Change-rights allows a user to edit the access settings.
If a user requires write access to a plan and none of the users with change rights are available, contact on of the LEQM key users at your company who have access to all LEQM plans. To give access to all plans in a project, right click on any of the plans to the left and choose ”Add User To All Plans”. And again, search for the user and click: ‘OK’.

The plan view can be sorted on a column that is currently not visible/hidden. To display or hide plan columns, make selections under “Plan Columns” under the Edit menu.

To remove a sorting, click on the headline with the triangle one or two times until the triangle disappears.

Two or more plans can be connected to create a Base-Slave relation. A Base-Slave connection keeps the slave plan(s) automatically updated when the base plan is modified until the connection is removed. To assign a Base plan to a plan, click on the attribute Base Plan (1). Locate the project (2) in which the Base plan is located, mark the plan (3) and click OK.
To assign Slave plans to a plan, click on the attribute Slave Plan (4). Locate the project (5) in which the slave plans are located, mark the plans (6) and click OK.
To deactivate a Base-Slave connection, right click in the plan and select ”Deactivate Base plans… ” or ”Deactivate Slave plans… ” (7). Connecting two (or several) plans as Base-Slave can save a lot of time when keeping the planning updated. However, the user has to be sure that the plans should have identical planning on all activities before connecting.

The button (6) allows the user to search the database for plans and then add them to the Custom structure. o remove plans, click on the button with a red minus sign (7).
