Add Instructions

The instruction sidebar can be helpful in explaining the concepts and usage of the blueprint to the end user. The instruction section is fully customizable and can include more complex text formats than the description, images, embedded videos as well as other media.

The instructions editor is a full featured rich text editor that can include embedded video links, presentations and images and can even contain custom HTML code. Any instructions you create will be visible to the end user in the Instruction sidebar when viewing the blueprint's diagram or the sandbox diagram.

Note: CloudShell admins can configure the Instruction pane to open by default and change the pane's width - see Specifying which side panes should be open by default and Defining the Instructions pane size.
