Default brewsmith question

hey i'm sampling a free trial of the brewsmith software and i'm trying to figure out the carbonation table.
you type in desired co2 volume, temp, and beer volume and get a required force carbonation pressure. but no time frame of carbonation.

whats the deal? is there some sort of standard carbonation time i don't know about? because i'm aiming for fast as possible and i cant quite find a solid recomendation of pressure, time, and temp to yield the right carbonation.

It takes about a week of you just connect it and let it go. If you shake the keg, CO2 will dissolve faster into solution. If you need it fast, set the regulator to 30, shake for a few minutes, and then lower the reg to the pressure you ant according to the chart and leave it to coast the rest of the way there.
