Don’t Just Help, Guide: Making Documentation More than How to Accomplish a Task

It’s so easy to just list what to do and not provide actual guidance why or best practices.

In my group, Digital Care at GoDaddy, we decided to pilot a project to bring together multiple content types into one guided path.

As leader of that project, my group included people who created how-to videos, led our Community forums, edited articles for the Garage (our blog), and also included UX researchers, customer onboarding strategists, and our Guides.
