Subject:online help: help me convince the boss From:Bill Hartzer <BHartzer -at- PAGEMART -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 9 Mar 1999 12:22:00 -0600
I've used Doc-to-Help for many years. However, the company where I work
has never included online help in any of its applications (gasp!). Now,
the "new boss" wants to add online help to our applications and is
"looking at several help packages."
All of our documentation is done in MS Word 97. Therefore, with my
experience using Doc-to-Help, I believe that it's the most logical answer
since all of our doc in already in Word. I can tell him that I've used
Doc-to-Help, but that may not be enough.
What do I say to my boss to really convince him to go with Doc-to-Help?
