Create links to steps within the same task

Create links from one step to another within the same task that include a dynamic step number.

While it’s a best practice to write tasks so they flow without interruption from the first step to the last, sometimes you need to create a looping task. When you need to do this, it’s best to create a cross-reference so that if the steps are re-numbered, the step reference changes automatically.
