*Entering a new variable structure*

*Entering a new variable structure*

To insert a new structure into the formula field, just start typing its name and a list with *autocomplete* will appear for the structure to be selected, as presented in the following image:

After selecting the desired variable, it will be displaced and its font color will be equal to the color of the adequate structure, represented in key, as below:

*Entering mathematical operators*

*Entering mathematical operators*The user can enter mathematical operators to compose the formula in the indicator definition input. To do so:

- Enter the desired operator;
- Select the correspondence (or press
*Enter*) on the*autocomplete*list that will appear

Only after selecting the desired mathematical operator, the indicator definition field shall be ready for a new entering, as below:

*Changing the time period of the variables*

*Changing the time period of the variables*The user can still control the variable structures in the formulas according to the desired periods. It is possible to choose a specific time period for each of the structure by clicking below them, according to the representation as follows:
