This article shows how to access and edit current vs. past program conditions in Thread with special focus on target status.
Past vs. current program phases
Past and current program phases / conditions can be edited from a Thread chart. This article explains how they appear and function differently.
- Editing the current phase of a program is the same as editing the program itself.
- A past phase can be edited only to make historical corrections (EXCEPTION: in a Task Analysis program, edits are global across phases.)
The current phase
There is just one current phase on any chart. Editing the current phase is the same as editing the program itself. Changes here will carry forward to future phase(s) and update program-level information like target mastery and the Future Targets list.
The following two different navigation methods arrive at the SAME edit screen:
- Tap the current condition label on a program chart, then select Edit Program.
- (OR) from the program list in your main work space, tap the overflow menu icon (...) next to the desired program, and tap Edit Program.
Major edits or additions should always be performed in the current phase. This includes setting a target to mastered, even if the target was mastered but overlooked in a past phase. Images here and under Past Phases below should help clarify.
Tap Edit Program on the current phase popup menu (above) to access the edit screen. There, you’ll be editing the program itself. This is an example:
Past phases are strictly historical. Edits to a past (historical) phase should be made only to correct errors or typos.
The Current Targets list operates at the phase or condition level. Targets display as Current in a past phase to indicate those targets were current at the time. Other targets exist as inactive on the edit screen to suggest targets you might have forgotten to set as current in that phase.
Tap Edit Condition Record on a PAST phase popup menu (above) to access the edit screen. There, you’ll be editing only that phase, making corrections for historical purposes. This is an example:
