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.


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.

Import from CSV File

Tascus will copy information from a CSV file and convert those to Tascus steps. The following step types are supported for CSV import:

  • Display Work Instruction
  • Record Text
  • Scan Part
  • Pass-Fail Test


Exporting Steps to a Sequence

Tascus gives you several ways of exporting sequences from the Sequence Editor. You can use this feature to make it easier to perform an offline review of a sequence, or to share sequences with colleagues.

All exporting of Tascus sequences is started by opening a sequence in the Sequence Editor, then clicking on the File > Export menu.

Export to CSV

This exports a CSV file of a sequence that can be viewed in Excel. It includes a summary of all steps in a sequence but does not include any images used in work instructions.

Export to Tascus XML

This enables you to export a sequence of steps that can be imported into another Tascus database, or into another sequence.


Export to Html

This generates a printable version of the work instructions in a sequence. Each work instruction in the sequence is exported to an Html file.

Step 1 – Open a Sequence and Export to Html

Step 2 – Select the Folder to export the Sequence To

You must select a folder, then click the Current Folder button.

This will then export each Work Instruction step of the sequence to an Html file.

You can then view each Html file in a web browser.
