Video tutorials - Basic

This is your one-stop-shop for all of the Basic Video Tutorials from our Guided Tour and Document Assembly. In this series you will receive an introduction to the Berkeley Publisher. Is this your first time using the Berkeley Publisher? Then the Basic Tutorial series is a good place to start.

Each video below is accompanied by a short description with useful tips or links to the topics touched upon in the video. We suggest that you follow the tutorials in the order as listed below, as they increase in difficulty.

More comfortable with text? Then simply start by reading the first tutorial. Note that all articles with videos list them at the top of the page and can be recognized by a video icon in the menu.

Decision trees

In this series of tutorials, you will learn the basics of the Berkeley Studio by making an interactive decision tree which results in the drafting of a contract or other document. Do not forget to save your model, as you will be using this for the rest of the tutorial series. Read the text version “Berkeley Studio: first steps”.

Text & Questions

The Berkeley Studio offers numerous possibilities for adding text and questions to your Studio model. In this video, you will learn what kind of questions you can ask, which inputs to use and how to help your clients in answering your questions correctly. Read the text version “Texts, titles and questions”

Studio Efficiency

In order to make your model look even more professional, the Berkeley Studio includes several features that give your model the final polish. These are jumplists, screen flow, the unlock feature and information sources. In this video, you will learn all about these handy tools that help you finalize your model.


This video explains how to add (and work with) subgraphs in your model. Subgraphs improve the clarity and structure of your model and let you re-use chunks of related logic. They also let you export them to other models.


In this part, we will explore how to add two numbers in the Berkeley Studio and show the result to the user. The text version of this tutorial can be found at formulas.

Complex Formulas

The previous tutorial introduced you to the concept of formulas. Formulas are very useful tools when drafting decision trees since they - together with conditions - allow for complex, multi-step, logic. They can use both mathematical computations and functions and can be referenced by other pieces of your model in return.

This follow-up video will illustrate how to use functions within formulas. If you have not seen the fifth video in this series (Formulas), we advise you to watch that tutorial first. See also the text version of this tutorial.


In this tutorial you will get to know about the use of conditions. You will learn why they are useful and how to add them to your model.

Document Assembly

In this video we will learn how to create Word documents by the use of text fragments.


This video discusses how to publish your application online, after which you will also receive a short introduction to the online environment where you can view published models.
