Can I Directly Enter Criteria Weights?

You are able to directly enter criteria weights, although it is always preferred to go through the pairwise process when this is possible.  If you have previous weights that have been agreed upon, you do have the ability to directly weight these priorities.  In addition, Decision Lens lets you use a combination of direct weight at one level, and use pairwise for a different level of the tree, assuming you have this flexibility.
