I received error about having to change time step from 2 to a minimum of 4 during heating simulation. Could anyone be able to show me where can I change the time step? Thanks a lot!

DesignBuilder and the interface has changed significantly since the video keb refers to, and now includes many more capabilities and options. If you are running a simulation, go to the simulation screen and open the simulation options dialog, and there you can set the number of time steps per hour on the options tab. If that doesn't answer your question you can submit a ticket to our technical support team or find out more from this Help topic:
