I have created a new version of our Content Management User Guide to reflect significant changes to the page layout process in the CMS. However, the old guide will be needed for a period of time as users will still need it until they move to the new process. So both guides with similar titles will exist for a while. The issue we have is what to call the old guide. Someone has suggested calling it a "legacy" guide but I am wondering if there is a better name for it, e.g. the "Content Management Users Guide (name)" though (name) could be in a different position in the doc title. Does anyone have any suggestions?
