Work with plan scenarios

You can create scenarios based on existing scenarios and edit them. You can switch between scenarios to compare metrics, building space use, and zoning or land-use area.

By default, a plan has two scenarios: the existing conditions and the new (future) conditions.

Create a scenario

To create a scenario while editing a plan, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the plan to edit and click Open on the plan detail card.
  2. Click the Configure scenarios button More in the center of the header.

    The Scenarios dialog box appears.

  3. Click Add Scenario.
  4. Provide a name for the new scenario and choose the scenario on which the new scenario will be based.
  5. Click OK.

    The new scenario appears in the Scenarios dialog box.

  6. Optionally, click the new scenario and add a description, configure a design visualization or a design context web scene, or configure the modal split.
  7. Click OK.

    Note:

    See Share and publish plans to learn how to make scenarios visible to the public in the overview.

Lock a scenario

As the owner of a scenario, you can lock it. This prohibits other users from editing or deleting your scenario with the exception of the plan owner who has the permission to delete an entire plan (and the scenarios in it). The workflow for locking a design scenario is slightly different than the one for locking a scenario of a plan in the public content. To learn more about public and design plans, see Share and publish a plan.

Design scenario

To lock a design scenario, complete the following steps:

  1. Click a plan in the view or find it in the search panel.
  2. Click Open on the plan detail card.
  3. Click the Configure scenarios button More in the center of the header.

    The Scenarios dialog box appears.

  4. Find the scenario you want to lock and click the lock button next to the scenario name.
  5. Click OK.

    The scenario configuration dialog box closes.

Public content scenario

To lock a scenario of a plan that is in public content, complete the following steps:

  1. Click a plan in the view or find it in the search panel.
  2. Click the Settings button on the plan detail card.
  3. Click the Scenarios tab and click Configure in the center of the header.

    The Scenarios dialog box appears.

  4. Find the scenario you want to lock and click the lock button next to the scenario name.
  5. Click OK.

    The scenario configuration dialog box closes.
