In this tutorial you will create a new workflow by configuring steps and moving them to the proper location in the workflow. You will learn how to save the workflow to a file, associate it with a saved map document, and distribute the task assistant workflow.
It is recommended that you complete the tutorial in sequence, since the instructions build on those introduced in earlier exercises and assume you understand those concepts. You should complete at least all the sections in each exercise. If you save your edits and the map at the end of each exercise, you can start the tutorial again on the next one.
