Storyboarding

You can storyboard the duties and tasks being identified during your job analysis session. Aidematic provides a visual storyboard to your recorders and facilitators to create, edit, reorder, and delete duties and tasks. Symbols are maintained for every duty and task created. Duties follow the pattern A, B, C, onwards, while tasks are identified with their duty symbol and number designation such as tasks for duty A will be A1, A2, A3, …., etc.

You can also export your duty and task information in an excel format. To access a storyboard in a job analysis session studio, navigate to the Storyboard tab:
