Which documents?

Scroll Prev Up Next More

If the following arguments are the only reasons why you consider creating a document, don’t create it:

“Everybody does it.”

“We’ve always done it this way.”

“I don’t know where else I should put the information.”

Create a particular document only if:

users actually need the document

legal requirements necessitate that you create the document

If you think that users expect a particular document, but if you aren’t convinced that users actually need this document, don’t create it. Consider adding the information to another document and choose a title or subtitle that makes clear that the information can be found there.
