Training manual (how-to) template for end-users? 

 Hi everybody, 

First off, I apologize if this question is being posted in the wrong place. 

I been asked to put together a very brief training manual on how to setup new vendors in our vendors database. I'd like the training manual to incluude screenshots 

and the steps needed to perform each task. I'd like to avoid the document being to wordy. Does anyone know of any templates ModernAnalyst or another site that I 

can use to get me started? I really appreciate the help.

Thank you,

Re: Training manual (how-to) template for end-users? 
Hi Castillb, I suggest you go one step further from job aids and create an automated video on how to set up vendors. You can spend 10 pages documenting step by step with screen shots, but they're unlikely to read it. There are several software programs that capture your screen actions including Captivate. Show them step by step with audio voice over how it's done and post the link to the video in your vendor database. It takes about the same amount of time to do as a word doc, but is appreciated and used more. First, I would go to the vendor database's website and see if they already have documentation or a video created for you. good luck! Machelle
