As many of you may have already noticed today, we’ve really been ramping up LandlordMax‘s online documentation. The user manual is now fully updated with all the new features for version 2.12b. In addition, rather than only offering a PDF version of it on our website, we’ve now converted it completely to html. By doing this we’re seperating it into smaller pieces so that is’ easier to get at for those who don’t have higher speed internet connections. I do undertand that many people liked to print out the full user manual and read it at their leisure, and that’s why we also have a “Printer-friendly” version of all the online documents (one for the User Manual and one for the FAQ‘s) to replace the PDF version. You can find the “Printer-friendly” links at the end of the indexes.
We’ve also added the ability to search the online documentation such as the user manual (and all other online documentation such as the FAQ) for any search term or terms. Because of this you can now look up very specific tidbits of information without having to dig through the whole user manual, the website will do that for you! I suspect this will greatly help a lot of people.
In addition we’ve just started to update and ramp up the FAQ. And as bigger news, we’re planning to introduce a completely new “How do I…?” online section with animated tutorials to answer specific questions that don’t exactly fit in the user manual (for example “How do I find out what rents are due next month?”). You should see some of this trickle in on the website over the next month or so.
Of course we have other items to update on the website, for example the screenshots web page need updating, but all in all as you’ve noticed we’re really ramping up on all of the online documentation to make things easier for everyone.
Please feel free to let me know what you think of our new user manual and it’s new features.
