Dozens of Excel based Data Collection Forms are provided to simplify and speed offline data collection from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).  The attributes and options within each form (Job Tasks, for example) are identical to the corresponding (Job Tasks) fields within ADVISOR.  Once completed, the data can be uploaded to ADVISOR Enterprise with a few mouse clicks.  Although the import function is fairly intuitive, to minimize errors, please read and follow the instructions.
