The Lifecycle screen is divided into three sections. The left column controls navigation and display of the current lifecycle (Figure 1).

In the left column are:

  • A button that collapses or expands the display of the left column.
  • Expand All and Collapse All buttons to display or hide sub-steps.
  • A Zoom slider that allows you to get a closer view or an overview of the lifecycle. This can be especially helpful in complicated projects.
  • The Actual Size button, which reverts to the default lifecycle display.
  • The Show All button, which fits the entire lifecycle into the screen.
  • A map of the entire lifecycle, with the portion of the lifecycle currently displayed on-screen highlighted. This is very helpful for knowing where the project is in the lifecycle, how far along it is, what’s left, etc.
  • Navigation buttons that allow you to move around in the lifecycle. The Home button in the center returns to the current active lifecycle step.
