Your Secret Weapon: The Documentation Handbook

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Whether you work with a team of writers or on your own, it’s a good idea to keep track of your documentation procedures and style guides. Keeping everything in a centralized repository lets you organize internal processes and rules, and introduce new writers to the team. Enter the Documentation Handbook: a one-stop shop for procedures and style guides. Because it is written using your current authoring tool, it acts as a sandbox for new writers to learn procedures while editing topics. However, it isn’t just for training writers; it is a useful reference for the entire team. Join this session and let Kate show you how to create and maintain a very useful tool and resource for everyone on your team.
