    Welcome to the In Editor Tutorials discussion forum. You can use this thread to ask for help, share feedback, and have discussions about the In Editor Tutorials packages.


    Introduction

    The In-Editor Tutorials (IET) packages (Tutorial Framework and Tutorial Authoring Tools) makes it possible to create and run interactive in-Editor tutorials for a wide range of Editor use cases. For example it can be used in teaching environments where a tutor can easily create sample projects with accompanying instructions and tasks for students. It is also useful in large collaborative projects where project information and specific tools can be explained to new contributors. Another use case would be to include tutorials with custom tools that are shared with other people.


    Resources
    For more information, please have a look at...

    Requirements

    • The minimum required Unity version is 2019.4 LTS

    Getting started
    1. Download Unity 2019.4 LTS or newer through the Hub.
    2. Open your project in Unity and go to Project Settings > Package Manager.
    3. Enable Show Preview Packages in the project settings.
    4. Go to Window > Package Manager.
    5. Click on the "+" in the top left corner of the window and select "Add package from git URL..." and add com.unity.learn.iet-framework
    6. Click the "+" again and add com.unity.learn.iet-framework.authoring

    Current state
    The packages are currently in pre-release state but we are looking to make the verified 2.0.0 release in the coming month.


    What's next

    Our current goal is to increase the utilisation of the Tutorial framework in both internal and external projects. We have a few new features in our backlog that we are going to add. One example is the addition of categories and navigation so that projects can include more tutorial content. In addition to this we are also looking to gather user feedback and add features based on requests.


    How to provide feedback
    In terms of feedback, we're especially looking for:
    • Can you think of any use cases that are not covered yet?
    • Are there any workflows that are unclear or missing?
    • Is there anything that is unclear or that you don’t understand?
    • Are there any issues or unclear parts in the documentation?
    Please share your feedback in this forum.


    How to report bugs
    Ideally we'd like any bugs reported through the built in bug reporter tool, as that will automatically provide us with some relevant context. When reporting bugs, please:
    • Attach a (stripped) project when there are issues with X.
    • Attach X files when there are issues with X.
    Have a look at this page for more information and best practices around bug reporting.

    Once you have submitted a bug report through the bug reporter, please feel free to start a discussion about it in this forum.


    Thank you for your interest, we're looking forward to your feedback!
