If you discover any bugs with the task builder please respond to this post so we can look into and fix any problems. I found one the other day. I found that I was unable to add text to the body of a page. It was frustrating and we’re working of getting that fixed. It’s an odd bug – doesn’t seem to be consistent – those are the worst. I’ve included a workaround that you can use if you’ve also encountered this problem. Just click this highlighted text: Fix so you can add text to a page.

If we can recreate it we have a better chance of tracking it down and fixing it. Thanks! Happy scenario building.

Traci Sylva,assistant researcher at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, was quoted in a US News Science article as saying: “We also try to develop such skills as communication, which is something industry has told us it needs, how to work in teams better (workplace etiquette, as well as the basics of business), and what it takes to grow food for our growing population,” she adds. “Employers want their employees to know the basics of business and how their work impacts that business.” –Full article
