Feedback, Please! - Why Technical Writing Shouldn't Be a One-Way Street

For a long time, technical writing was like driving down a one-way street. We’ve sent information into one direction, and nothing came back. But since the age of the Web 2.0, this approach is no longer a best practice. Today, being a technical writer means to communicate and to interact with everyone involved – including our readers. Building documentation heavily depends on feedback, and it’s an iterative process – more like a traffic circle. New processes require new technology – it’s time to move from publishing tools to collaboration platforms. This blogpost is part of a series about feedback in technical communication, In this article, read why receiving feedback is crucial to create helpful technical content and how a web-based collaboration platform can enable both internal feedback and customer feedback.

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)!
