The Authoring Toolkit is a stripped down version of Guidance Explorer that does not come with a guidance library and includes just the basic guidance types. The Authoring Toolkit is designed for guidance authors who want to use Guidance Explorer to create and/or distribute their own guidance. It has the following capabilities:
1. You can customize the application title to match your team or organization
2. You can add/remove/edit guidance types
3. You have full access to all of the Guidance Explorer features, except for connection to an online store.
Once you've customized guidance types you can distribute to your team for guidance browsing, authoring or modification.
