Target lifecycle

Targets are designed to be flexible by nature and you are free to configure them to fit your workflows. You can freely change target statuses as you like.

The default lifecycle of a target is:

  • Waiting: The target is not yet be taught and is not available when running programs
  • Probe: The target is being probed. It is included by default when adding the program to a session.
  • Acquisition: The target is being acquired by the client. It is included by default when adding the program to a session.
  • Mastered: The target is already mastered. It is not included by default but you can override to maintain the target.
  • Closed: The target is mastered and no longer trained. It is not available when running programs.
  • Aborted: The target is not being taught.

Manually adjusting a target status #

Target statuses will automatically be set to Waiting initially. The status can be changed one target at a time by selecting the drop-down box to the right of each target. Watch the video below to see how you can also adjust the status of multiple or all targets within a program at once.

Introduction and mastery dates #

The platform automatically stores the target’s introduction date the first time you record data on that target. Likewise, the mastery date is stored when you mark the target as Mastered. You can always overwrite these dates as needed.

Library #

When copying a program to the Library (and vice-versa) all targets are reset to the Waiting state. It is therefore important that you edit the program and select which targets to probe before including the program in a session.
