Importing Steps to a Sequence

If you have existing work instructions, it is possible to import these into Tascus to quickly get started with production sequences.

Open or Create a Sequence

You must open an existing sequence, or create a new sequence before importing steps.

Select File > New

This will open the New sequence revision window, where you'll need to specify a sequence name & revision for the sequence.


This will leave you with an empty sequence to which you can import steps.

Import from PowerPoint

Tascus will copy slide images and text from PowerPoint and create a Display Work Instruction step for each PowerPoint slide. This gives you a quick way to generate production sequences using existing work instructions.
