  13. COMMANDtrack Looking Forward • User creatable views • Currently we support tracking, standard scheduling, 2-grid, 4-grid and 6-grid scheduling, … • Future direction will allow the user to create new instances of tracking and scheduling, arrange them as they see fit, and then save that grouping of screens a view. • In this manner, you can create a 1 tracking with 3 scheduling screens cube or 2 tracking on top with 2 scheduling below; configurations that are not possible now. • Within each tracking and scheduling screen, independent configurations can be chosen to show a particular plant list and appropriate settings. • All this saved and configurable after the fact from each window.
