Custom Curves

In some cases, you may want to remove certain figures from a chart to make it more relevant. The custom curves capability allows you to alter the  chart by selecting the records that you want to include.

Note   Using the custom curves capability does not impact the actual database. If you remove a record from the chart by using the custom curves function, the actual record remains in the database and may impact other figures.

Custom curves create a new metric, using the name of the base metric, with a Custom prefix.

To create a custom curve:

  1. Make sure a user is selected in the Report Explorer pane. If not, select a user.

  2. From the Project menu, select Test Process Monitor and Custom Curves.

  3. In the Custom Curves dialog box, select a metric and the start and end date of your chart.

  4. The record list displays all the records contained in the database of that metric. Select the records that you want to use for your custom curve. Clear the records that you do not want to use.

  5. Click OK. A new metric is created.

To change a custom curve:

  1. From the Project menu, select Test Process Monitor and Custom Curves.

  2. In the Custom Curves dialog box, select the Custom metric that you want to modify.

  3. Select the records that you want to use for your custom curve. Clear the records that you do not want to use.

  4. Click OK.
