MadCap Contributor Icon

MadCap Contributor makes it easy for anyone in your organization to review and contribute content in a secure desktop-based workflow. Managers and subject matter experts (SMEs) can review and edit topics, make annotations, and update MadCap Flare content with a simple, easy-to-use interface.

A Streamlined Workflow for Content Development

Send and receive review packages directly within the app, instead of using non-integrated products such as Word or PDF

  • Allow SMEs to easily review, edit or create content for MadCap Flare publishing
  • Send reviewed, revised, or annotated content with track changes back and forth with reviewers and SMEs via email, SharePoint or using External Resources
  • Contribution templates set by the author ensure formatting and styles are maintained
  • Advanced track changes help manage the editing and review process:
    • Automatically enabled when reviewers open topics in MadCap Contributor
    • All changes are tracked, along with the user who performed the change

MadCap Contributor contribution/review workflow:

  • Open the contribution template or review package sent from the author
  • Edit the content in Contributor
  • Accept or reject changes if topic already includes tracked changes, or insert annotations
  • Return the contribution template or review package to the author

Contribution Templates Provide Consistency

Contribution Templates make it easy for anyone to edit and review content

  • Applied Styles mean SMEs and managers don't need to worry about formatting, just the content
  • Avoid the hassle of converting content from Word and other formats to ensure consistency throughout your documentation contribution and review process

Templates can include but are not limited to:

  • Page styles
