Categories and Guides? Can you explain Dozuki's hierarchy?

History

I have a lot of documentation spread across several product offerings, could you further explain Dozuki's organizational hierarchy to me?

I want to better understand the following Guidebook objects:

  • Categories
  • Guides

As well as how they all relate back to each other. Thanks.

Guidebook organizes content using two objects: Categories and Guides.

You can read more about our Hierarchy here.

Categories

A Category is a wiki page that is used to organize your content. When creating a guide you must first identify which Category the new Guide belongs in. In addition to attaching a Guide to a Category, Categories can also have additional categories (which would serve as subcategories).

Lets say you have a product line of 4 Widgets, called Thingamabobs. On top of this, you have a standardized process which enables a user to identify what Widget they have. You could organize in the following manner:

Block Image

Attached to the Thingamabob Category Page would be the single Widget Identification Guide and then four separate Widget A-D SubCategories.

In Addition, Wiki text and images can be placed on Category pages to provide additional information.

Note: The ability to have multiple layers of categories is only available on the Enterprise Plan

Guides

A guide is a wiki page that supports photos and drawings within a step-by-step structure. Guides are the glue of Guidebook. They attach to any category.

Guides can be attached to other guides by utilizing the Prerequisites feature.
