Guys, How it is possible to add a compact schedule in open studio version 2.8? I have seen this video, but it regards earlier version of open studio. And I could not add or load a default compact schedule in open studio.

Thanks for your help in advance

@Mamak if you have an IDF file with compact schedules, you can import that into OpenStudio to save them as OpenStudio compact schedules. You can then load that a library under the file menu to drag compact schedules into other OSM models that you are working on.

If you are writing measures, you can also create compact schedules using the API based on user inputs or external files.

Thanks David for your response. I did as you explained. However it is not possible to edit the compact schedule in OS? Am I right?

@Mamak correct, generally speaking, yes, you can add them but not edit them. There are a sub-set of situations where you can edit them in the edit tab, but I would not rely on that.
