Typical Issues with Free Version

#1

I have some concerns regarding the interface I have creating using free version of Forio:
1- How can I add two different variables to a graph?
2- Is there any feature that I can add a pop-up for any actions that users do in the interface?
3- When an user simulate a run, Forio saves it so others can see the previous runs. How can I stop Forio to save
everyone’s run?
4- Also, the baseline can be deleted by anyone, can I make it un-deletable?
5- And if none of these can be addressed in free version of Forio, what features the professional versions offer?

Thank you.

Below are some of the answers to your questions.

1- How can I add two different variables to a graph?
For scenario comparisons, you can plot multiple variables on a graph by using the “Run Analysis (Single Run)” templates. You can get to this by selecting “+ Add Page” and then selecting “Run Analysis (Single Run)” See the image below.

2- Is there any feature that I can add a pop-up for any actions that users do in the interface?
This isn’t available in the interface builder but you can add pop-ups by editing the HTML.

For the next two items:
3- When a user simulates a run, Forio saves it so others can see the previous runs. How can I stop Forio to save everyone’s run?
4- Also, the baseline can be deleted by anyone, can I make it un-deletable?
These can be addressed by having users log into the simulation. User log-in is called “authenticated accounts.” When a user logs in, they will only see their own runs and not the runs of other users. Authenticated accounts are available in the for-pay version of Epicenter. You can see prices here:

I have developed the interface but it works very slow. I used the free version of Forio. My friend have used this version too but his interface is much faster and also when I run his model, every time I see a new run without seeing previous runs.
Why there are some differences between mine and his although we both used the same version?

Hi,

Thanks for the note. We took a look at your simulation. There are 4096 data points returned by your simulation (as opposed to the Simulate simulation which is limited to 100). The primary delay with the sim is the time to bring back these data points and pass them into the graphs.

We have an update planned for this weekend which brings in a new feature that allows you to set a reporting interval. If you set the “reportPer” line item in your model to 32 for example, this will bring back 128 data points and the graphs will load much faster.

Once this is out I’ll update this ticket with specific directions.

regards, WILL

Thank you for your reply.
I look forward to it.
How about the option to not save the runs?

Hi,

Unfortunately - runs are always saved. However, you can go to the Manage Runs page and delete a run after you are done.

Thank you.
But then why I don’t see any runs saved in this link:

Hi – with regard to your question above. Please note that the jalali account is with the older version of our software (Forio Simulate). You are working with the newer version of our site (Forio Epicenter). Features will be slightly different.

On the other note, the site update with the “reportPer” fix has been postponed until this coming weekend. Our apologies for the delay. We’ll update this ticket when the fix is available.

Hi – I wanted to let you know that we have a recent update to Epicenter that adds in a “reportPer” configuration item to the context file which will let you specify an interval for reporting data, and can speed up simulations with many timesteps. See
