Good Afternoon,

I am being uncharacteristically wishy-washy on a training document I'm writing. It has a companion web site with videos. The videos will follow the steps in the document with text on the screen. After watching the video and reviewing the steps, users need to complete an exercise. The document is laid out like this:

Create a Folder
Steps Overview

I have a two-column table for the exercise with Steps on one side and Actions on the other. I'm waffling on whether the Action side should be filled out completely, basically repeating the steps (because steps are actions) or keep the actions to things the user does outside of the steps, like how they should name the folder.

If anyone has a better idea, I'm up for it.

I know I'm probably not being clear. I blame the pollen.
