In this concluding article, take a look at a sample table ofcontents for a user manual, understand the importance of having yourwork reviewed by peers, and find out how to handle document versionmanagement.
With all of this behind you, you will finally be ready to release the manual. The following frills will complete the package:
The name of the software should be written in accordance with the brand decided.
The version number of the software should be clearly stated.
The name of the developer with address and contact numbers.
Table of contents
The topics should be linked to the matter inside.
Notifications for proprietorship and confidentiality
Headers and footers
Headers could include the project name and version number of the document.
Footers can have the page numbers and a short confidentiality notice.
It might also be a good idea to include a feedback form as the last page, as your users will probably get back to you with suggestions. This will be especially useful if there is a second phase of development for the software.
And that's about it. If you'd like to learn more about the technical writing process in general, here are some links you might find useful.
