Testing quotas
If your interview uses Quota control, you can test your quota categories and targets before you activate your interview in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server.
You can only test a quota that is based on the answers to questions in your interview script (.mdd) file. Quotas based on sample management data are ignored.
Overview
You define quotas by creating a quota definition (.mqd) file. If you have already created a quota definition file for your UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server project, you might want to use that file for testing. Alternatively, you can create a new file from within UNICOM Intelligence Professional.
The quota targets and counts are stored in a quota database. Alternatively, UNICOM Intelligence Professional can create a quota data source via a UNICOM Intelligence Data File .ddf file on the client.
To test a quota, specify the Debug Quotas: Data File Location in the UNICOM Intelligence Professional options, and then select Quota > Enable Debugging from the UNICOM Intelligence Professional Tools menu. This synchronizes the categories and targets in the quota definition file with the quota database. When you test your interview, UNICOM Intelligence Professional increments the counts in the quota database. To check the quota counts, stop your interview script and run an mrScriptBasic file to produce a report.
