Assessing: COMPASS: viewing your records: the main window

The basic background window includes a number of drop-down menus and icons at the top of the screen.

The menus are:

Most of the options in the menus will only work once you have selected a case record from the case index (IHTM31112).

As you continue through the COMPASS program pages, different windows will open, each with a description of itself on the title bar. The windows open on top of each other, which uses up a lot of computer memory. Try to limit the amount of windows open at any time. Working from the case outline window will help with this.
