After logging in, you arrive to your Projects Navigator. Here you can geolocate all the projects you have created so far. The project “Example Case” is there to show you what a project could look like. Let’s start!
→ Create Project: Click on the circled plus symbol (⊕), name and geolocate your project. Then press Save. Selecting the created project will bring you to the Project page.
→ Edit Project: Click on the three points –upper right of each project– and select Edit
→ Copy Project: Click on the three points –upper right of each project– and select Copy Project
→ Send Project Copy: Click on the three points –upper right of each project– and select Send Project Copy. This will send a copy of your project to one of your colleagues, or to any other Sympheny user. Enter the email address corresponding to the users's Sympheny account and click Send.
→ Reinitialise Project: (Only available for specific Example Projects shared by us). After clicking the project will restore to its original state.
→ Share Project: Share this project with several secondary owners. Allow these owners/users to Read only or Edit the project.
As an owner with Edit rights you can click on Lock and prevent editing of the project by other users.
The other user will see a banner with a message like this:

A Project in the Sympheny Web app typically corresponds to a site for which you would like to develop an optimized energy supply system. In the Sympheny Web app, Projects are composed of Analyses, and Analyses are composed of Scenarios. When you run your optimization, you can execute a single Scenario, or execute all Scenarios in an Analysis simultaneously.
This structure has been designed to fit typical energy planning workflows, in which:
Multiple Scenarios may be used to evaluate different possible futures (e.g. energy price conditions or energy demand assumptions) for the site or different design variants.
Multiple Analyses (i.e. multiple sequential iterations of an analysis) may be used to iteratively refine the design of an energy supply system for a given site.
What can I do on the Project page?
On the Project Page you have an overview of your Analyses included in that Project.
On this page, you can:
Copy Project: By clicking on Copy Project a new project will be added to your dashboard of projects
Send Project Copy: By clicking on Send Project Copy, you can send a copy of the Project to any other Sympheny user
