Quick Start

For the impatient among you...

We strongly advice you to read the Help sections on analysis, because a little background information will make your work much more efficient.
If you want to read it later and just get started right away, this summary should get you started in just a minute.

Start with a Case or not?

In many cases an analysis is made because it is related to a patient and you may want to keep it for later reference.
In this situation, it is advisable to first create a case, or open an existing case, because your analysis is then stored in the right place.
Once a case is opened, a new analysis can be added to it easily.
For detailed information on how to organize your cases and analyses, please read section Case module.

If you just want to do a quick analysis, without the context of a real case, just don't open or create a case, and a default case will automatically be created (named Unnamed case) and the analyis stored in there. The analysis can be found in that case labeled with today's date.

Adding rubrics

Adding a rubric to your analysis is easy.
First select the rubric in the Book module. A rubric is selected when it is marked with a bright yellow color.
Then press the Enter key. (Menu option Case / Add rubric, control-R).
To find the right rubric, the Find module can help you.
