TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
We have a product that has a number of screens with very similar names and quite a few screens that you can get to in different ways. As thereâs a slight lull (famous last words!) and I thought I try and may them out, initially for my own benefit but also possibly to be added to the docs as an Annex. Iâve had a couple of thoughtsâ
I could do it by hand, A3 sheets, and show the paths. Fine for me, if cumbersome, but probably not very useful for inclusion in the docs
I could use Visio, Help package, âbrainstormingâ software, spreadsheet etc and do it that way
I could simply tabulate each screen â name, function, how to get there
Anybody else done anything like this? How did you do it? What did you use?
