I perform content review slightly different. For most of my FM content, I
extract data from a set of Excel/Access files. Right now, I'm up to over 20
databases of information. It is these files that I continuously request
review. Most like the review done this way because they can take the data
and manipulate it through SQL queries against real-time data and/or
configurations files. In return, I get a review on a single set of data that
I use to create multiple subsets of content throughout the documentation.
