We even put some marketing documentation behind a login to generate leads. The technical docs are all behind a login, accessible only to customers. Our management thinks it's more important to make competitors' lives harder than to have Google-searchable docs on the site.

Hi all


I'm interested to know what people think about putting documentation behind a login screen, for example to offer extra documentation for paying customers.


I wonder what views you have about about giving all documentation freely available online. Do you see the restricted access to some documentation as a business opportunity or an annoyance/hinderance to the wider readership and prospects?


I don't know whether there is a yes or no answer to this but it is more about the principle.


Thanks in advance for your thoughts.


Helen
