Hello Qlik Community! In Tuesday's edition of the Design Blog I highlight some of the latest features found in our new Help Site - created with collaboration from our engineers, technical writers and our Product Content and Media team. We hope that the site's new layout and navigation features make it easier to find the information you need, when you need it.
The New Qlik Help Site
"Teamwork for results" -- this is one of Qlik's core values that many of us embrace when creating content that makes our community successful with the Qlik platform. However, few are aware of our unsung heroes that work behind the scenes to bring you this great content, delivered to the Qlik Help site as well as our Qlik Help YouTube channel. I'd like to take this moment to thank and recognize them on behalf of the Qlik Community.
There is a small army led by Renata Rieschel, Director Product Content and Media. Renata manages the development and maintenance of all the content, design and infrastructure of the Qlik Help site. Our technical writers and architects not only design and write the help documentation, but they are also tasked with writing video scripts and verifying content from a linguistic point of view for many of the structured help videos you will find on the Qlik Help Channel. We have even enlisted the appealing voice talents of our Collaboration Product Designer, Stephen Jasionowski and our Internal Communications Manager Helene Rudzinski to provide the voice-overs for many of the help channel videos created by our interaction designer Giuseppe Panella, including those from our new series Qlik Tuesday Tips and Tricks - found on YouTube.
With all this great content being created, both visual and text-based - how should it be hosted, what will the UI look like, how will people search, navigate and find what they need? That is where Magnus Franzen and Tobias Leander come in. They have built a framework and implemented a platform to host all this content and strive to improve the performance, accuracy and usability of it daily, providing you with the best user experience possible.
I'd also like to recognize our technical writers, interaction designers, web developers, architects and engineers in Product Content and Media whom all work together to bring you the best content in a timely and efficient manner.
