Some of our colleagues are currently working hard to create a Thinkwise community website, which includes e-learning, webinars, documentation and a forum.

In preparation for this, we at Product Innovation have been busy converting the existing Word documents into a more consistent and reusable format: MarkDown. And because the Community site is not yet live, we have made the documentation available for now through our Office website. Check it out!



Online Documentation

The documentation is stored on our new Azure DevOps environment. Because MarkDown files are plain text files we can use the integrated GIT version control to easily make and review changes. Docusaurus is used to generate a website from the MarkDown files.

Help us improve the docs!

We have already done some serious sanitizing of the documentation to correct inaccuracies, supplement omissions and improve the worst steenkolenengels. Fortunately, our English teacher Rob will soon do a final check of the documentation as well. The coming period we’ll also be adding more documents and, of course, the upcoming 2018.3 features.

In the meantime, if you see any errors or missing features, please help us improve the documentation by reporting a ticket via TCP. (Select the Documentation product!)

Why do improvements need to happen via a ticket? Why cant we update the text ourselves? We all work at Thinkwise and (should be) knowing what we say, right? I assume this could save you guys a lot of hasstle and will get everyone that wants to get involved, directly involved.

We would very much like that too, but to access our Azure DevOps environment you need a Visual Studio subscription, and we only have a limited number of licenses. We’re looking into some other options as we speak, so hopefully in a while everyone will be able to fork the repository and submit pull requests!

@Robert Jan de Nie We have moved the documentation to GitHub so that you (and everyone else) can now propose changes yourself!
