How do you access the "Results Table" in Sketchbox?

I'm using for some preliminary modeling & parametric analysis. I am running a lot of ECM combinations to find opportunities for peak heating/cooling load reduction. Previous versions of sketchbox (including the version shown in the video tutorial) had a "Results Table" in the Results Tab that you could use to copy/paste data (including peak heating/cooling loads) from each measure into excel. I am not seeing that "Results Table" in the current version of Sketchbox, and the "Download Results" button does not provide information for each specific measure. How do I access this information in the current version of Sketchbox?

The Results Table which was previously visible by default is now hidden in the advanced user interface. To access the advanced user interface, hold down ALT while clicking the project name in the upper left-hand corner:

The reason this table is hidden (and an important caveat) is that the definition of "Summer Peak" and "Winter Peak" will vary by utility and geography, among other factors. The peak periods in this table are currently defined as:

  • Summer peak
    • All Weekdays (Federal Holiday Exceptions: Independence Day)
    • Start Date: 6/1
    • End Date: 8/31
    • Hours: 1-5 pm
  • Winter peak
    • All Weekdays (Federal Holiday Exceptions: New Year’s Day, MLK Day, and Washington’s Birthday)
    • Start Date: 1/1
    • End Date: 2/28
    • Hours: 6-8 am and 5-7 pm

Currently these peak definitions cannot be modified, but this is a feature we are exploring for a future release.
