edit X X

collaborate X X X
rename X
delete X X

Edit. Open the program for editing.

Copy. Makes a copy of the program. This becomes a new program.

Publish. Transitions the program to the published status. A published program can be used to schedule/start assessments. Published programs can be submitted to the marketplace.

Assess. Schedule or start an assessment based on the published program. Published programs acquired from the marketplace only have the "assess" command.

Revise. Creates a clone of a published program for revising. Works with commit and revert.

Commit. Commits a revising program back into the published program it was cloned from. The revision and history are updated, and any changes are immediately reflected in the shared or marketplace published program.

Revert. Discards revisions made to a "revising" program. It basically deletes that cloned version.

Labels. Adds labels to use for filtering the programs. Examples: demo, safety, aerospace, play. Labels act like foldes. Tag several programs with a label and then use the filter to see just those programs.

Collaborate. Shares a program to collaborate on a draft or revising program or shares a published program with another user to use for assessments or procedures.

Rename. Renames the program.

Delete. Changes the status to "trash." Use the "trash" filter checkbox to see items in the trash.

Restore. Restores a deleted program to its previous status.
