It is our understanding that the most easily edited components of an extracted Pack-It-Up archive would be the file attachments that were initially created using external software programs, such as Microsoft Word. Because these attachments maintain their original file extensions and file types, they remain editable using the software programs that created them.
All of the other components of the archive, including Directed Response Folios (DRFs), presentation portfolios, and Taskstream work created with the Taskstream tools, are saved as HTML files before being compressed in the Pack-It-Up archive. While these can be edited with the appropriate software, such as Microsoft Frontpage, they are meant to be used simply to display student achievements. Editing these documents could result in formatting problems or usability issues within the archive, and should only be attempted by individuals with expert knowledge in web page editing or design.
However, once you've downloaded the package to your computer, you can then extract all the files in order to have all the data stored in one folder so it will display correctly. When the files are extracted, you will have a file folder icon entitled My Taskstream Work. Any file attachments originally included in your Pack-it-Up archive can be accessed and edited at this point.
Please note that extracting compressed files, editing them using external software, and burning data onto a CD are processes that do not involve the use of Taskstream. Therefore, we can only provide limited support for these functions. Please contact us directly at 800-311-5656 if you need assistance with extracting your files and we will do our best to assist you.
