Keeping Quick Reference Guides quick?
Aug 16, 2012
This isn’t Articulate-related, but I’d love your opinions/assistance…
I am creating a Quick Reference guide to give to our software users at our annual conference (these are external customers, not internal employees). I chose which topics are important and typed the steps to accomplish each topic. Ideally, I’d like one page, front and back…anything longer might be not-so-quick and more costly to produce. (I have QRGs for other modules which fit a single page.) Anyway, typed out, everything fits on the front and half the back. Add in screenshots, and I am finding it impossible to make everything fit without bleeding onto another page. Would you delete a topic? Delete some screenshots? Do some other option I haven’t considered?
I’ve already made online videos which we offer to our clients, so that isn’t an alternative. Plus, our conference attendees just LOVE to take “stuff” back with them. Gosh, they love them some handouts. Thank you!
