From Taskstream help screens:
The Pack-It-Up area enables you to create packages of TaskStream work that can be downloaded to and viewed on your computer. Viewing work in a package does not require you to be logged into TaskStream.
Packages are created in a compressed format: .zip for PC users, and .sit for MAC users. When your package request has been completed, you will receive an e-mail notification with instructions on how to access the package. You can transfer or back up your package as you would any other file.
Note: It may take up to 2 hours to process your package request.
Before proceeding, there are certain things to keep in mind:
Each package will be available for 30 days. After that point, you will no longer be able to download the package.
It is not possible to add the downloaded work back into TaskStream or edit work on your computer once it is downloaded.
Pack-It-Up will not delete the selected work from TaskStream.
Pack-It-Up will create a copy of your selected TaskStream work and convert it to an html format. Any file attachments will remain in the file format in which they were created. These files are then compressed in a .ZIP or .SIT format.
Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 users will need a decompression utility such as WinZip. Macintosh users may need StuffIt.
To begin the process, click the Create a New Package button. You will see a categorical list of your TaskStream work.
Click a category to view all titles within it. To choose the file you wish to save, click the checkbox that appears to the left of its title.
Note: You can select to include more than one piece of TaskStream work in your package.
When you have selected all the work you want to save offline, click the Save & Continue button to continue.
You will now see a list of items you have selected.
To remove an item from this list, click the Remove button to the right of the file you want to remove.
To select more work to download, click the Add More Selections button. You will then return to step 1 to add new selections to your list.
When you are satisfied with your selections, click the Save & Continue button to continue.
In Step 3 you will set the options for your package.
Choose the file format for your package that complies with the type of computer you will use to download. If you are a PC user, choose the .ZIP option. If you are a MAC user, choose the .SIT option.
Choose the method in which you would like to be notified when your Pack-It-Up file is ready. You can choose to receive your notification through the TaskStream Message Center or through an external e-mail address. If you choose the external e-mail option, you must supply a valid e-mail address.
Click the Finish button to proceed.
Once Pack-It-Up has completed the creation of the package, you will receive a notification e-mail in the address you specified in Step 3: Pack-It-Up Options. The e-mail message will direct you to go to the Pack-It-Up area of Resources to download your package.
Download Your Package
Once you have received the notification that your package is ready, you may download the package from the Pack-It-Up area.
Access the Pack-It-Up home page and click the Download button next to the package. Notice that once the status column contains the word “Available”, the download button becomes active.
Once you click the download button, a pop-up window will likely appear containing downloading prompts. You have the option to save the file to your machine, open the file from its current location, or cancel the download. Choose Save if prompted to do so.
Note: Depending on your browser, platform, and operating system, you may or may not see a pop-up window with downloading prompts. Your machine may download the file to a predetermined location without any prompting

Just some examples of what text looks like in Taskstream.
Adaptations: I indicated where the “Text & Image” and the “Main Text” sections start, so you can get an idea of how much content you can add and not interrupt the visual flow.
Technology: You can see the how the text changes from the text boxes to the use of sections.
Rationale: This is only using sections and not using “Text & Image” and the “Main Text” options.
Daily Lesson Plans” When you click on Daily Lesson Plans in the left navigation, you will also see “supplemental material” appear in the left navigation. If you click on “supplemental material” it will take the viewer to a new area/page. This was accomplished by adding an area and linking to Daily Lesson Plans, rather than the folio title “Introduction to Law”.
