The Inspection Documents Task Editor is where tasks - MPD or other - can be added and revised. In order to add or revise tasks, the Inspection Documents module must be in Edit Mode. See Inspection Documents - Utilities

An inspection document record - a task - contains accomplishment Instructions, zone, access panel list, references to external documents, trade/skill expectations, a parts list, and graphic/pdf attachments. In addition an inspection document record also tracks aircraft effectivity, revision number, and source document information.
