-These tasks are very easy to use but have some limitations. Every program step is written in a table, and the table is executed from top to bottom. Branching is possible if calling other tasks from that list (CallAsThread,​ CallAsFunction).Conditional branching is available in Scripts only. Also (nested) repeats are possible. The biggest advantage of Cuelists ​isthat programming skills are unnecessary to work with them. Also for people with (basic) programming skills, Cuelists lead to target ​very fast.+These tasks are very easy to use but have some limitations.

-Timestrips ​are used for a timeline like programming. The difference ​is that the representation ​of the task is not a timelinebut a table.+ 
 +Timelines ​are used for a timeline like programming. The Timeline ​is displayed as a table. Each entry starts with a time that represents ​the start condition ​of that cue. To allow multiple commands to be executed at the same timetwo or more rows can have the same time as start condition.
