Managing Your Project
There are several features in Doc-To-Help that can help you better manage your projects, especially if you have a team of content developers. This includes setting up modular projects, providing various project settings, viewing reports, implementing team authoring, and more.
Here are the primary ways to manage your project:
- Migrating Projects Many of us collaborate on Doc-To-Help projects using Team Authoring, TFS, or SharePoint, but sometimes we simply need to transfer a project to a coworker or a client. This is done by sending the entire project folder, but here are a few tips to make the transition easier.
See Migrating a Project.
- Modular Projects A modular project is necessary when you have a collection of several different output files (and would like to keep them that way) but would like them to appear to the end user as a single output system.
See About Modular Projects.
- Project Properties and Settings You can provide your project with various settings.
See About Project Properties and Settings.
- Reports Doc-To-Help has several reports that will help you organize your work and keep track of topics and index elements. These reports can be viewed, saved, and printed for maximum flexibility.
- SharePoint Doc-To-Help’s integration with Microsoft SharePoint makes it easy to collaborate with your team, as well as across your company.
See About SharePoint Integration.
- Team Authoring Team authoring is a source control feature that makes it possible for multiple authors to work together on a single project.
