Online Help - Beginner's Workshop

Online help is a revolutionary way to migrate programs, policy and procedure and announcements to all your company users. Be gone with cumbersome paper manuals that quickly become outdated and take up shelf space. Instead, use an electronic online library for your text files, flows, matrices, or company directory. Information is easily updated and only part-time custodian duties are needed. Online libraries have almost no impact on network servers.

CKI offers three Online Help workshops: Beginning, Intermediate and Developer's. The Beginner's Workshop is a pre-requisite for the Intermediate course. This seminar is ideal for minor tweaking of existing projects or to help plan a new online project.

We suggest arranging to receive all three Online Help courses on a continuing regular schedule. In this way your developers will learn intensively and become competent without the need for refreshing previously learned information.

In the Online Help Beginner's Workshop, you will:

  • Learn the online documentation process
  • Understand project writing and layout styles
  • Use the Help Authoring Tool
  • Make minor changes to an existing online library and deploy the changed project to the server
