Format for effectiveness

Make your content intuitive to follow by formatting it so it can be ready and understood quickly. Besides text and screenshots, you can insert checklists, foldable sections, pop-up links, table of contents, and styled text blocks. You can even embed forms and videos from 3rd-party services.

When your guides are formatted clearly, your employees can do their jobs faster with fewer mistakes.
