Step-By-Step Component Best Practices
“In order for training to be effective, training needs to help employees not only understand a procedure, but be able to apply it to their jobs, and consequently the success of the company.”
Use a new step-by-step component for each category of your process. For example:
Add more than 10 steps to one step-by-step component. If your process is this long, make the entire page about this one section of the process & break it up into multiple step-by-step components.
Make each step in the process short, and skimmable so the reader doesn’t get overwhelmed with a large number of words.
List multiple steps in one step… this could get confusing to the reader, and it’s much easier to click the arrow to know when to continue on to the next step.
