This is for a cloud-based SaaS product which doesn't have releases in the traditional software sense. An initial Help system was created. Now I have to prepare to do periodic updates. I'm thinking of duplicating the existing Help system's folders and file and renaming the existing system's top folder to "release." I would then name the duplicate's top folder "beta" and work on updates to the product in the beta version. Once the beta version is ready for release, I would copy those files over to the release folder structure and repeat the process.
Are there any gotchas when duplicating a Help system? I want to make sure the hyperlinks and graphic links are kept intact.
Any other suggestions for handling this?
It's pretty straightforward. Just pop out to Windows Explorer. Copy the project folder to a new folder somewhere. Then from RoboHelp, open the copy of the project. Once you do that, RoboHelp doesn't know any different from the other copy. All links and whatever should be perfectly maintained. At that point I would consider renaming the project to avoid confusion.
Thanks Rick. Too easy. I was expecting at least one gotcha.
