A wizard is an ordered sequence of screens (pages) through which you interact with Ooyala Flex in order to carry out work. Ooyala Flex’s wizard framework is very extensible so that developers can create their own wizards with their own associated screens.
Wizards can be launched in three different ways:
A stand alone wizard can be found inside the I Want To… box on each dashboard for easy access.
Wizard pages are the individual screens through which you interact with in Ooyala Flex to get work done. When wizards are created, the specific pages are selected and the order in which the pages should be presented are also set.
To run a stand-alone wizard simply find the I Want To… box on any dashboard in the Ooyala Flex console. Click on the name of the wizard you wish to run.

Once a page has been created, you have the option of editing, deleting, or re-ordering the sequence of the pages for a Wizard. To do this, hover over the chevrons to the right hand side of each page, and make your selection.

An example of how this functionality works, can be shown using the “Add an asset to a group” wizard, as follows:
