Analysis Criteria

  • Documentation types:

    to get an overview of how much documentation is designed for being printed and how much documentation is designed for online use, and to see what different types of documentation are existing (help, manuals, tutorials, training courses, videos, tips and tricks ...)

  • Search functions

    to have a closer look at the different search functionalities in Application Help and printed documentation (search boxes, index, glossary, chapter headings ...)

  • Information types

    to rate the distribution of the four information types:

    • instructional information: detailed stepwise instructions
    • conceptual information: explanation of specific office terms, particularly important for beginners
    • referential information: functional descriptions (of dialog items or spreadsheet functions for example)
    • examplary information: examples that help to understand actions and concepts.

  • Visualization
  • Navigation
  • Contents organization
