Clicking through the peripheral sequence can last a few minutes, but it saves you linking hundreds of PLC in-/outputs manually. The diagram shall help you if you don’t know what do. If you know what to do you can skip some steps:
When you double click on Peripherals and select the IO tab you can see all in-/outputs within a peripheral tree. Here you can move in-/outputs via drag and drop without losing object parameters.
Copying or cutting and pasting is also possible for several in-/outputs by multiple selection.

This is a huge improvement when using numbered step names:
You must set the option "duplicate on copy" for each step. To apply this setting for new steps set the general TwinCAT options like in the screenshot:

This will help you and the operator to identify deviations due to faster or slower movements or communication times later. Analysing and comparing can also be done in the office with Cycle Time Diagnosis.
