The configuration information needed to design the steps that are included in a task assistant workflow include commands, feature template settings, and layer information. Configuration information can be obtained directly from ArcMap or from a saved configuration file. A saved configuration file can be used to create multiple workflows.
Appending configuration information to an existing file adds the configuration information to the existing file, rather than overwriting it. For example, you can append configuration information to an existing file to see additional geoprocessing or other tools that can be associated with steps.
- Start ArcMap.
- If necessary, click the Task Assistant button on the Task Manager toolbar to display the Task Assistant window.
- Click the Designer tab.
- Right-click the Designer tab and click Append Config. File.
The Append Configuration File dialog box appears.
- Navigate to the configuration file you want to append.
- Click Open.
Information from the selected configuration file is appended to the current configuration file and updates the list of commands, templates, and other settings that are available for the workflow.
