Select Parent Job¶
As introduced in the header menu page, a completed "Parent" Job can be selected and added to a Job being designed from scratch. This new Job can in this way be based upon the Parent, and thus re-utilize its final results for further computation. These results are therefore "recycled", with the aim of optimizing the performance and computational time of the child Job.
In order to do so, the user should select the
Select Parent option under the drop-down menu of the main header bar of Jobs Designer.
