[Equest-users] Compliance Defaults Overridden

I've always inputted tongue-in-cheek values (ie. 9,999 for the baseline
and 10,001 for the proposed) and never had any comments from the reviewer
on it. I'm not sure what sort of useful information it provides the
reviewer anyway, though I suppose a really small number might raise some
eyebrows regarding the sophistication of the model.

I'd like to echo this question (feature-request?) that seems to have come
up a few times already:


Submitting a LEED EA1 template requires the user to input "Number of
defaults overridden:" for both the proposed and baseline models.  I'm sure
myself and others past, present and future would be interested to hear
others share approaches to tabulating this within the context of eQuest


Does it necessitate going through every schedule and counting the number
of cells with red text until the user's retinas bleed?


Is this figure quantifiable in any time-efficient manner?  


Has anyone observed the USGBC powers-that-be ever raising an issue with
regards to this template requirement?


Looking forward to enlightenment!

Can someone please tell me where I can find the number of compliance
defaults overridden?  Is this information on any of the outputs?


Thank you much!
