Troubleshooting Guide Template: 5 Ways To Improve Style and Format

  1. 1. www.Klariti.com Troubleshooting Guide Template: 5 Ways To Improve Style and Format If this is your first time writing a Troubleshooting Guide Template, then the following checklist will help you write this technical document. One way to write this guide, also called Troubleshooting Manual, is to use other guides as a reference point and build from there. Troubleshooting Guide: Getting Started This guide is not difficult to write once you understand the following points: 1. Readers – identify who will read your document. Is it end users or System Administrators for example? To learn more about Audience Analysis, read these articles on defining user profiles. 2. Expertise – identify what is there level of expertise. For example, if you're writing a Troubleshooting Guide for a Car, then you need to consider that the average person may not know where or what is the spark plug. 3. Prerequisites – for some documents, it’s best to provide information that puts the document in context. In other words, maybe they don’t need the Troubleshooting Guide, maybe it’s the User Guide they should read first. 4. Format – design your Microsoft Word template so that the key information is easy to find – and fast! Whoever is reading your document is possibly upset, in a hurry, under stress… so format the document so that the key problems are easy to find in the Table of Contents. 5. PDF – after you create the template in Microsoft Word, convert it into Adobe PDF and reduce the PDF file size so it downloads fast. Also add keywords to the file properties, so you can find it easier on the network. About the Author: Sharon Quinn helps companies develop Software Development Plans.
