The tutorial on how to set up a coordinated task might be helpful for this:

Otherwise, could you share some more details on what exactly you are trying to achieve?

Thank you Felix. I am using an event triggered task sequence - the event is when a particular queue is filled. I would like two operators to go to the queue and remain for a certain amount of time (one operator is there just for observation only). After the delay, one operator loads the item from the queue to transport to another location. The second operator is released once the first operator loads the item from the queue. I have the task sequence working for one operator only. I just don't know how to incorporate the second operator.

Are you using a resource together with acquire/release to reference the first operator? If so, you could just acquire a second one, assign it to a different label and control it with activities like the first one. (Without using the "Create Task Sequence" activity. It is really only useful if you want to pre-define a task sequence and dispatch it as whole. It also doesn't support more than one task executer as far as I'm aware.)
