Using the Equation Editor Info Tab

From within the Info Tab, you will first need to give your equation a name.  The name will have to be unique to any other token (calculator, equation, constant or dataset) in your space.   EquationName.png                                   Equation Editor : Info Tab  
You will notice that there is a button on the Info tab under Options to “Include this item in Public vCommons”.  If you choose this option, your equation will be available to any vCalc user and be in the vCommons library under your user name. We encourage people to share their knowledge and efforts by checking this box.  If you leave this box unchecked, the equation will only be visible to you and then only when you are logged into vCalc.  It will be your private equation.  Note: all equations must have successful tests (see Using the Test Tab), and there must be at least one test case.

Making an equation available to the public is up to you and your equation is yours alone unless you choose to share it.

Summary Steps: Using the Info Tab

  1. Type a unique name for the new equation
  2. Leave the option for making the item visible (Public or shared) checked (by default).
  3. Later, when done with testing the equation , you can check the option for including the item in vCommons.
