Software documentation

There are two types of documentation which should be created for software. Those that are used internally within the company, and those that are used externally, by the customer.

Some examples:


Explanations of software.
  • What it is for
  • Who the intended users are
  • How it works
  • How it is developed
Sales tools


User guides

  • System requirements
  • Basic (user guide)
  • Advanced (user guide)
  • Installation
  • Upgrading
  • Troubleshooting
  • Moving an installation between machines
