Jake and Jer,

In my opinion, this is happening way too often. Please adjust the program so that this link can be removed from your white pages. It happens way to often. Can't the program just check to see if the element is already used in the project? If it's used as a component, let the elements that have not already been used in the project be installed and the others should not be allowed to be duplicated. There's got to be an internal fix.

I just had this happen again (went through the last submittal messed up). Instead of going through this whole rig-a-marrow, I created a new window in the paper sheet to cut the extra element out. Not a good fix. I know. But takes a lot less time. Not a good fix. Shouldn't need a user fix. Sorry to throw this back at you, but you're the smart guys in the room.

Maybe when I'm up there from the 12th to the 16th you can tell me that this is already done (probably not though as I know that your plate is full already). We'll be going to the concert at the plaza again. It would be great if any of the LandFX team will join us again. That was so fun last time.

Jake,
Thank you for sharing the link..

I went through it but not sure if it is a bit long process specifically if you are in a strict time of submission, and the last thing you need to worry about is to fix the schedule.
this is my concern about this link.

I fixed it the easiest way, I did delete the advised equipment an add it again, then I generated the schedule and it worked perfectly(attached BEFORE & AFTER the fix), but not sure if this is right.

I would recommend that if there can be an internal fix in the program for this problem as Seaweed said.

Seaweed,

I'm back from vacation!
As for "fixing" this - we have scheduled to revamp the Import feature in the Irrigation Manager, to use a dialog box, and address multiple issues. But in all honestly, we're not going to be able to address all issues. When it comes down to it, when you are Importing into a project that already had equipment in it, you are always going to run the risk of some sort of conflict between what is already in the project and what you are importing. We could make Import only work if there is nothing already in that section, but obviously that wouldn't go over too well.
We should get the revised Import functionality within a month or two.

I understand that this is not an easy task. For instance, how will the program know if we have already added this part? Our office switches out the actual part with the generic item. As an example, we call the part in the heading "Electric Remote Control Valve" not "Hunter ICV" and the description begins with "Hunter ICV". See the attached. BTW, This way of noting the irrigation elements is both traditional and still common. - See the attachment.

BTW, We're coming up next Thursday to go to the street market. Maybe I'll stop in on Friday to say hi. And maybe you and some of the LandFX team will meet us at the concert in the Plaza Friday the 13th to see Brass Mash. https://m.facebook.com/events/404811170954401?active_tab=discussion. That was fun last time.
