You can quickly determine the best Importance Levels by running Compucap Handicap Reports on past races where you already know the results. To do this, set the importance levels to their defaults, then enter race and horse information and run a "Base Report". Analyze the results compared to the actual race results, then tweak the importance levels until the results improve to their best and save those levels with a descriptive name. Then apply those Importance Levels to an upcoming race and apply the results.
At times you will not be able to select certain tabs, buttons, dropdown lists, etc., this is the normal operation of the application.
