Creating the Tags instruction set

The steps below create an instruction set called Tags. Users who are members of the built-in system roles All Instructions Questioner, All Instructions Actioner, All Instructions Approver will automatically then be able to use these instructions on all devices.

The Tags instruction set will contain 17 instructions from the 1E-Explorer-TachyonCore Product Pack described in the table below. The product pack filename is and is downloaded as part of the Tachyon Product Packs zip file from the 1E Support Portal. For more information about this product pack and its instructions, please refer to 1E Explorer TachyonCore product pack.

First upload the instructions:

  1. Logon to the Tachyon Portal using a Tachyon user account with the Full Administrator or Group Administrator role.

  3. Navigate to the Settings→Instructions→Instruction sets page.
  4. Click on the Upload button.
  5. In the Open dialog, navigate to the location of the file.
