Display level-2 nodes / Collapse tree (1)

Display the tree level-2 nodes or collapse them. There's a node for each question that a template defines.

Unclassified nodes (2)

Not always visible. This label appears when you open a Project file that was made with a previous version of the loaded template. If you click this label another window will appear showing you the nodes that couldn't be classified and a number of minutes that were previously estimated for that nodes. To remove the unclassified nodes from a Project, click this label and then click "Remove nodes" button. Click here for more information about unclassified nodes

Previous / Next (3)

Use these buttons to move between the current template questions. Some of these questions (level-2) will open up more questions (level-3). Level-3 questions always depend on the existence of level-2 answers. Depending on how the template is built, a level-3 node may generate several instances of the same question, so many as the number you entered for the level-2 node.

Tree (4)

Represents the hierachy of questions you can answer to calculate an estimation. Besides from using "Previous/Next" buttons to move between questions, you can also click on a node of this tree to direct-access that question.

Level-2 question (or node) (5)

Answer this question to add up its minutes to your current estimation. Some of these level-2 questions will open up more questions (level-3).

Level-3 question (or node) (6)

A level-3 question always depends on the existence of a level-2 answer and also on how the template is built. Depending on how the template is built, a level-3 node may generate several instances of the same question, as many as the number you entered for the level-2 node.
