By default, the case controller is located directly below the main toolbar and is visible when the application is launched. It can be toggled on and off from the View menu in the main toolbar.
The case controller displays the default date that is applied if any changes are made to the model either through an editor, or on the map. For further information on making configuration changes, see adding changes after building your model. After a change is made, the date is highlighted in yellow in the case controller and forecast view, and is referred to as a configuration date. You can select various dates from the drop-down arrow and view model conditions as of the selected date.
It is important to manage dates within the model. Make sure you have selected the appropriate date before making any changes in order to avoid confusion later.
