Version

The Version information group on the Version page shows version number, status, author, and comment for the current model. All these properties can be modified. In addition, it displays the date and time when the model's version information has last been changed.

 

Model Information

Model Information shows the following information about the model:

File Location: Location where the model is stored on the hard disk.
Mode: Since only file models are supported by QPR ProcessGuide Xpress, the mode is always exclusive edit.
Type: Since only file models are supported by QPR ProcessGuide Xpress, the type is always file model.
Created: The date and time the model was created.
Last Saved: The date and time the model was last saved.

 

Changes Log

The Changes Log shows the changes made to the model. By default the log is set off. Logging can be turned on by checking the Use Log checkbox. If the logging is on, it can be turned off by deselecting this checkbox if you have the rights to disable it.

 

If the changes log is selected to be used, a new log entry is created every time the model is saved. Each new version entry (additions to the current version are written at the bottom of that version's log) is added to the log in a reverse order (in other words, latest changes are shown first) and contains the following information:

bullet3  date and time when the model was saved

bullet3  user who made the changes

bullet3  trail of changes

 

Note that the date and time do not indicate the time of the actual change, but the time when the model containing the changes was saved.

 

The trail of changes is a list of all the changes made to the model. The changes are grouped by process level and the action taken. All the effects of the action are listed. The effects are classified into three categories: created, modified and deleted.

 

For information items, an entry is added not only when an information item is created, modified or deleted but also when information item is linked to or removed from a model element. For linked information items, the old information location and the new information location are both included in the log entry. For embedded information items, the embedded document location is included.

 

Note: When an information item is linked to an existing element and the information item is deleted, there will be two entries in the changes log:

1. Entry about the information item deletion.

2. Entry for the element where the information item was linked to. This entry does not, however, include the name of the information item that was removed from the element. The information can be found from the changes log - if such an entry is found, check if any information items were deleted during this save operation.

 

An example of an entry in the Changes Log could be:

To clear the contents of the log, select the Empty Log button. If the button is not enabled, you do not have the sufficient rights to empty the log. Before clearing the log, it is possible to archive the current model log information. However, it should be noted that it is not possible to import existing log information.

 

Note that modifying the changes log options requires that the model has been opened for exclusive editing.
