Scroll Versions Pro Tip: Using the Variant Management Functionality for Workflows

My day-to-day work here at K15t Software involves regular contact with users of our Scroll Content Management add-ons. I provide troubleshooting tips and workarounds tailored to their use cases.

A while back, in fact, a Scroll Versions user came up with an innovative way to use variant management functionality for workflows. Let's take a closer look at how this can be achieved.

Customizing the Confluence sidebar and page navigation with Scroll Versions

Have you ever wondered whether you can display additional content (such as Atlassian's Confluence support docs) in the navigation sidebar and on each page? Well, I was wondering about this myself. And when I came upon the solution, I was quite surprised about where it was: in K15t Software’s support docs for the Scroll Versions http://www.k15t.com/display/VSN/Documentation theme. A prime example of RTFM (read the fantastic manuals)!

How to use Export Schemes - blueprints for your exports

We at K15t Software use Confluence for everything: to share news and knowledge in-house, for external communications and our website, to collaborate with customers, to manage our documentation, to create quotations for our services, and even for employee contracts. All these different kinds of documents need to have their own individual appearance when exported to PDF and printed. With Scroll Exporters versions 2.x, entering the correct export settings used to take a great many clicks. And so we sat down and thought about how we could make this easier for users. The result: the Scroll Export Schemes. With these, you can export Confluence content just the way you want it: defined once and exported in about two clicks. See the screencast at the bottom to see how it works in detail, and how you benefit.

Scroll Versions 2.2: Improved usability of version and variant management in Confluence

Some years ago, Canonical launched an initiative called One Hundred Papercuts to improve user experience with its Ubuntu operating system. A papercut is "a small, easily fixed bug or annoyance that a user will experience frequently". The name comes from the saying, "Death by a thousand papercuts". We at K15t Software were aware that there were some papercuts in our own software, so we concentrated on eliminating as many of them as possible in today's release of Scroll Versions 2.2.
