Use Conditional Tags to Map Content to Outputs
Conditional tags allow you to map any type of content to a specific output. For example, you may want to include a video for online output and replace it with a static image for manuals. This feature is also useful for creating student/teacher or internal/external versions of your deliverables. Doc-To-Help also includes automatic conditional content features. Print-based cross-references become links in online outputs, for example. This just scratches the surface. Conditional content technology is the secret sauce that will save you tons of time!

Doc-To-Help gives you technology to help manage content and workflow. Choose between Doc-To-Help’s own source control technology, Microsoft® SharePoint® or Microsoft® Team Foundation Server® for check in/out features, version history, and review workflows.
