A KPIs instance refers to the indicators specified by the values of the columns (characteristics) of the table eg name,period etc. In other words an instance describes the outcome of KPIs measurements during a specific period of the project.

This is the section where each user can view the aggregate indicators for an instance (as mentioned an instance is the KPIs measurements during a specific period of the project).

By clicking on a specific instance a table with the so far formed KPIs is available for analysis. The user can also download the KPIs with the corresponding button in a CSV format file. In order to open properly the file, the Tab separator must be specified.
