+Coming Soon
+### <h3 id="userFAQ"> User FAQs </h3>
+<b class="blue"> Q1 </b> What is the Project? </br>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Project is simply a collection of experiments. When
creating an experiment it will be under the project you select.<br/> Projects can be
shared with fellow gateway users. WHen the project is shared all experiments in the project
will be shared.
+<br><b class="blue"> Q2 </b> Where can I get test inputs? <br/>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> If you need test inputs try downloading from <a
href="" target="_blank">Test Input
Files</a> <br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q3 </b> Do I need to provide values for wall-time,
node count and CPU count? OR can I go ahead with the given default values? <br/>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Default values are given to make life little easy
for users. But depending on the job you should change the values. E.g.:If you need only two
or less cores than 16 better to change. If you need more wall-time change it, etc....<br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q4 </b> What can I do with Notifications? <br/>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Submitting a job from PGA does not guarantee job
getting executed in the remote resource right away. If you add your email address, when the
job starts an email will be sent to you from the remote resource.<br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q5 </b> Why 'Save' and 'Save and Launch'? <br>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> User has the option of either create and 'Save'
the experiment for later launch at remote resource <br/>Or <br/>
+		can directly 'Save and Launch' at once.<br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q6 </b> How do I monitor progress?<br/>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> When the experiment is launched navigate to Experiment
Summary Page.
+		There the experiment and job status will be present.
+		You can monitor the experiment and job status changes.<br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q7 </b> How do I view/download my outputs? <br/>
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Same way you monitor the experiment progress! 
+		<br/>For each experiment inputs can be downloaded from<br/>
+		- Experiment Summary page<br/>
+		- From 'Storage' at the top menu. Here you need to know the Project the experiment belongs
+		<br/> Once you locate the project you can browse for your experiment. <br/>
+<br><b class="blue"> Q8 </b> I want to bring back all the outputs generated
by my job. How?
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Simply set Archive to 'true' in respective application
interface in Admin Dashboard. Then all the files in the working directory will be brought
back to PGA.
+<br><b class="blue"> Q9 </b> I want to cancel my experiment. How?
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Navigate to experiment Summary and click 'Cancel'
+	Experiments only in operation (LAUNCHED, EXECUTING experiment statuses) can be cancelled.
+<br><b class="blue"> Q10 </b> 2. When I cancel do I still receive any outputs
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> When the user requested the cancel files will be
not transferred from the remote resource. But however by the time 'Cancel' was triggered if
the output files were transferred to PGA data directories they will be displayed.
+<br><b class="blue"> Q11 </b> How can I run same application with different
different inputs?
+<b class="blue">Answer: </b> Simply clone an existing experiment and change the
input files and launch.
+<br><b class="blue"> Q12 </b> I want to change the wall-time of my experiment
before launch. How can I do?
+	- Experiments in CREATED state can be modified through Experiment Summary page. Click 'Edit'
change values and Save or Save and Launch.
