NEXTGEN2 - COMPLETING YOUR SPECIFICATION
Click on images to open original in a new window

INTRODUCTION  Setting your project as Complete stops others from editing or changing your specification inadvertently. The Masterspec NextGen2 platform then allows you to output your specification in a number of formats. Before doing so there are a few checks and tasks you must run through to ensure you properly complete your specification.

Below we cover how to:

1. Set the work sections to Complete

2. View and update the status history

3. Output the specification
   
 
 1. SET THE WORK SECTIONS TO COMPLETE

Before you can SET TO COMPLETE every work section of your specification must be Set to Complete. Go to

PROJECT LIST PAGE  »  SELECT SPECIFICATION »  SELECT WORK SECTION

Select the "Set to Complete" button top right above your work section.

   

If you still have areas to complete the system will remind you by displaying the warning at left. Tildes (~) are used by NextGen2 to denote areas requiring editing by the specification writer. Go back and complete any tildes in your work section.    

Once all is well go to
PROJECT LIST PAGE  »  SELECT SPECIFICATION »  SPECIFICATION OVERVIEW 
and under Current Status, click on Set to Complete.
   

 2. VIEW AND UPDATE STATUS HISTORY

You are able to view status history on the project by clicking on the button in the specification overview tab. This gives you or anyone editing the document the chance to note any changes they have made for that particular document.     
 
If at any stage you need to re-edit a section, click on the Open for Editing link then note why you are editing or updating the document again. It will be logged against your status history, however these notes will not print on the document.
