User Manuals and Training Guides
Creating effective, comprehensible user manuals and training guides are critical in allowing readers to clearly understand the subject matter at hand. But when it comes to managing content, it’s important to ensure that the right content is being delivered to the specific audience. Trainers, writers, and content developers use Doc-To-Help to streamline the learning material development process.
How Does Doc-To-Help Work?
Easily Edit and Manage from Word
For writers and teachers working solely from Word, Doc-To-Help is the perfect authoring and content management tool. Many transform existing Microsoft® Word documents to an online eLearning site, while others write from scratch in Doc-To-Help’s content editor. In either case, it’s simple to manage and edit content from a single source, making it easy to deliver to a wide variety of audiences.
When updates need to be made, Doc-To-Help makes it easy to apply changes to a single, master document and apply across multiple versions. Doc-To-Help improves the content workflow with automatic topic creation, automatically generated table of contents, glossary links and more. When it is time to update, all you need to do is update the source.
Create Customized Content
Need to create different versions of a manual or guide, depending on the audience and medium? Doc-To-Help features conditional tags to allow users to map any type of content to a specific output. For example, users can create teacher and student versions of a manual by tagging text for inclusion/exclusion. If you want to maintain printed and online versions of materials, you can include interactive features, such as video, in online versions and omit them from printed versions.
Publish for Print, Web and Mobile
Write once, and publish everywhere with Doc-To-Help. When your content is ready, you can publish your user manuals and training guides for responsive web, PDF, ePub, mobile and more. In addition, they can be easily adapted into online Help or a web-based eLearning site, further extending the deliverability and accessibility of your guides and manuals.
