TIMELINE

 

 

Open the PAGES-tab of your query and click on the CREATE PAGE.

Now you will see the QUERY PAGE menu in front of you.

By moving the cursor over the page, you can see the nature and use of each query type on the right.

Timeline -query type is one of the basic forms of future research. It estimates the time (a year) when any phenomenon occurs entirely or to a certain extent. In addition to a single year, it is possible to evaluate a time window, ie. two times, the first of which is the earliest possible date and the second is the last possible date.
The timeline -query type is used in particular in technology evaluations.
Click on the option.

Enter the title of your query in the TITLE -field. Write your question in the THESIS field and write the explanation or the background information in the bottom text field if necessary.

Below the text fields, you'll see the default settings for your query. You can edit the settings by clicking the SHOW OPTIONS.

From the TYPE -menu you can define, whether your timeline has one or two values. If you want panelists to assess both the earliest and the latest point in time, choose the option TWO VALUES.
From the VALUE 1 and VALUE 2 you define, what you would like panelists to evaluate, for example, the earliest and the latest.
From the MIN you define, the year in which your timeline begins, and from the MAX, which year it will end.
From the STEP you define the interval of years on the timeline.

At the bottom of the page you define if the question is visible and commentable, and whether the conversation s are also visible to other panelists. Remember to save your query.
