Editing a Variance in a Project
You can edit variances in the following ways:
Select Edit from the actions list on the information page of objects that have variances.
Select an existing object that has a variance on the Folders page of the Project tab, and select Edit Variance from the actions list.
If the selected objects are not available for change, either because they are checked out, or are not able to be changed, an error message displays.
The Edit Variance window divides the editing of a variance into the following steps:
1. Set Attributes — For providing the descriptive attributes associated with the variance.
2. Define Impact — For commenting on the effect the variance will have on schedules, cost, and so on.
3. Select Affected Objects — For identifying the affected objects that are involved with the variance. Only those objects that are shared to the same project can be selected.
4. Set Attachments — For managing associated file attachments. Files in the context of the variance can be added, updated, deleted, or viewed.
Steps do not necessarily need to be completed in the order in which they are listed. You may navigate to any step for which the link is enabled.
