Wanting to use her own file-management tool isn't really a problem, but her attitude is. If she is an absolute tech writing novice but is unwilling to listen to the advice of the person who is trying to train her, she's going to be a complete nightmare.

I almost can't believe I am writing this. We hired an internal candidate into a tech writer position. I am trying to mentor/train her. We'll be dealing with Word documents on Windows machines.

I want her to set up a folder structure to manage the files she'll be handling. I suggest Windows Explorer as the "right tool" for doing so.
Instead, she wants to keep everything on her desktop and use a software called "Fences" to manage everything.

I think this is a really bad idea. Am I wrong?

I try to be easygoing and offer "suggestions" rather than dictate things, but am losing patience.

Thanks,

Bob
