Creating Technical Documents and Linking Features

After release features have been identified, Technical Publications can begin revising existing documentation or developing new documents to describe new product functionality.

Documentation development is tracked in Release Manager, with the document available as an attachment to the record. Associated features are linked to the document. Product marketers who may be associated with the development of the document are linked to the record, and their approvals are recorded. For each document, the fraction completed and the target completion date are logged so that potential issues can be flagged before they become critical.

To add a document

  1. Navigate to the Release screen > Technical Documents view.
  2. Add a new record and complete the fields, as needed.

    Some fields are described in the following table.

    Complete %
