# Modify selected values

Use the Modify selection view to adjust several values in a table at the same time. Select the values you want to adjust. The selected values must be in the same row and in a sequence.

Modify the values in one of two ways.

• Enter a new total for the selected days. The new total is then divided according to the current distribution.
• Use a percentage to increase or decrease the values. The percentage is applied to all values.

Apply a smoothing factor if you want to even out the differences between the values. The smoothing factor considers the surrounding values and calculates an average based on them. The higher the smoothing factor, the more days are used to calculate the average.

EXAMPLE   When smoothing factor 3 is applied to a date period, the new value for each day is the average calculated for that day, the day before and the day after (in total 3 days). If the Validated calls value is 1000 for Monday, 1300 for Tuesday and 1000 for Wednesday, the new smoothed value for Tuesday is 1100.

The overview information and preview chart are updated as changes are made.

NOTE   When you confirm the changes by clicking OK, the modified values are applied to the table. These changes cannot be reverted. The possibility to reset only affects the current changes. Previously applied changes are not affected.
