Condensing multiple Inquisit Lab scripts into 1 Web experiment

Hello,
Prior to the pandemic, we were running multiple Inquisit lab scripts as part of research study, where participants came in and did a few different types of assessments (one cognitive paradigm of our own, then the death/suicide IAT script), then 4 identical training sessions (our own script), then a repeat of the assessments, 4 of the identical trainings again, then the repeat of the assessments. The trainings differed based on whether participants were in the Active vs Control conditions.

Now with Inquisit Web, we are noticing we can only upload one file, unless we purchase a different license for each type of assessment or training which seems unnecessary. Has a thread or guidance already been written on how one can condense existing scripts? They have different fonts, sizes, etc. and I am not sure how to have it so that the settings for each type of session still remain specific to those sessions and not the entire script. I understand that we should be able to enter the condition for each subject at the beginning, rather than open different files by condition as we used to.

Thank you very much for any guidance.

Multiple tasks can be administered via batch scripts. This is supported on the web. The batch script needs to be uploaded along with the task scripts and all other assets, and then selected as the online experiment's start script.
