We are interested in providing a project published in SharePoint to a client, so they can then edit the files and TOC of the project.  How much of this is possible?

 

Are there any recorded webinars on the subject?

 

TIA...

You can publish to Sharepoint provided you are using a recent version of RoboHelp. See the RoboHelp Tour on my site. That does not enable your client to edit the files though.

 

When you generate from the topics, RoboHelp changes the topics to work with a browser and creates the output files that support the search and so on.

 

Clients customising help is something I have come across several times but when they realise it has to be done in RoboHelp, the enthusiasm tends to wane, rapidly. Why pay for a RoboHelp licence and learn how to use it as opposed to paying you seems to be the conclusion with that route.

 

Whilst they might be able to edit a topic to a limited extent, that would not extend to the TOC and the search would be for the output as delivered.

 

There's an old article about customising help on my site that will give you some more background.

Thanks, as always, Peter. That's what we've always told clients, and, as you say, they are not enthusiastic about buying and learning RoboHelp. What about the co-authoring aspect? That seems to suggest they could edit the published files if they have RoboHelp. Because of the way our projects are structured, it would be difficult to give them the source files.

Co-authoring is a source file feature.
