How to add a new case

  2. Make sure you are on the Home page (if not, click the Home link on the top right)
  3. Make sure your personal details are up to date, so the results documents will be filled in with the correct details, too. For more see Editing your Profile page.
  4. Click the Add new case button:
    1.  To see a screebshot, click here to expand...

    2. If you have a free trial case available, it will add your free case
    3. If you have no free trial and no pre-paid cases, you will be directed to a payment page where you can chose your case bundle (1, 10 or 20 cases) and then pay online with a credit card.  After you have you paid, you can add cases with the Add new case button
    4. If you have pre-paid cases, a pop-up will tell you how many cases you have left in your bundle and ask you to confirm it is okay to deduct a case from the bundle
  1. Once you have created a case, you will be at the Start step (top menu) you can choose buttons to either:
    1. Fill the case with sample data (for more, see How to use the sample data in Pathfinder); or
    2. Start with a blank case (for more, see Entering Data in Pathfinder); or
    3. Continue editing the case, if you had started it previously (or go straight to the Personal details step (top menu))
  • Every time you finish entering data in a field it will be saved automatically
  • You can log out of the case and come back to it later
