ScreenSteps: Simple documentation

Judi Sohn

To make finding this info easier, I started building wiki pages for documenting how we at C3 do what we do. And when they do I'd have to redo/update the documentation. Part of my job is helping my colleagues do what they need to do on their computers and online. They ask, "Judi, how do I.?" and I tell them.

Why Doesn''t Your Company Have a Social Media Voice Document? A Social Media ‘Voice’ document. Or is it a tone document? SocialFish : "People in your organization are going to be connected to social media somehow. It’s inevitable.

Google Drive as an Organizational Document Management System: an NTEN Case Study


A look at the basics of NTEN's own continually evolving Google Drive Policies and Document Management System. While it's no secret that most people love spending their extra time elbow deep in their Internal Document Management Systems, tweaking things until everything is just right, I still do hear of the occasional fringe case where an organization is just trying to figure out the best way forward, as old policies and methods no longer match up with new systems and technologies.

Documenting the Digital Divide

When IT Director Karl Hedstrom joined NTEN in 2006, a few employees had been working remotely, thanks to the Cloud. Going forward we kept looking for those solutions because, with our size and capacity, the Cloud always managed to be the better option," Hedstrom said.
