8. So, what's this FTP button all about?
FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol" and that's what you use to transfer your GoalEnforcer Status Report to your website, so that it will be displayed as a web page for other people to see it.
What info do I need?
Ask you Web Hosting Provider and they should provide you with your FTP login info.
It should include:
- Your FTP server address, which is usually something like ftp.mywebsitename.com
- Your Username
- Your Password
"Server Directory" means a folder in your server where you want to store your projects. Its usually www if you want to make your report open to the public, or something like www/myprojects if you want to use a private folder.

- You can choose to display the "Current Map View," which will only display the goals (and all sub-goals) that were being displayed by the main view before you opened the Status Report. Note: if you want to select a different view, close the Status report, navigate to a different level and then re-open the Status Report window.
- You can also choose to display the "Hyperfocus Zone" items.
- Click "Focus Off" to display the entire project.
