Traveler application user manual

Since last year, I have been working on a web application to create, manage, and share forms and travelers. A traveler contains a sequence of actions defined by a user in a form. An action requires a person to verify the action is performed and/or collect data as defined in the form. The traveler application records who collects what data at what time before the traveler is completed. It is quite similar to Google Form that used Google speadsheet as the data storage and management interface in that the user defines the form in a WYSIWYG way. The major difference is that Google form is implemented for a survey-like application that collects multiple pieces of data for each form, while the traveler is designed for a workflow-like application that collects one piece of data with revision history from multiple users. The full user manual page is now on github (via rawgithub).
