Task Instructions

A task may have instructions that are displayed to the operator prior to running the task. The instructions may be defined for the Task Program and/or for the Task Protocol. Protocol level instructions are set in the protocol editing interface of Dexterit-E. If a protocol has instructions set then the Task Program instructions are not displayed, just the protocol instructions.

Default instructions for your Task Program can be added via the Parameter Table Defn block.

Task Protocols can specify video instructions to display to the subject on the subject display. For information on setting up video instructions see the Dexterit-E User Guide.
