MadCap Insider, Issue No. 21, December 2018

Welcome to the December issue of MadCap Insider.

In this issue you’ll find a fresh collection of free resources, including a new webinar on interactive wizards in Flare, and blog posts covering Word import and the latest release of MadCap Flare.

The next MadWorld 2019 San Diego registration discount ends December 31, saving you up to $800 on your conference registration. We’re also thrilled to announce the MadWorld 2019 Dublin Call for Presentations, with a submission deadline of Friday, January 11, 2019.

Two new customer success stories highlight two very different companies and solutions. The first, from disguise, a visual production design software company used for concerts, live theater, and more, takes a look at how they focused on four core benefits with MadCap Flare: enhanced user experience, easy customization, efficiency, and brand alignment.

The second success story, from Snap-on Business Solutions, highlights how the company relies on MadTranslations to deliver documentation in over 30 languages.

We hope you enjoy this latest issue of MadCap Insider.

Interactive Wizards in MadCap Flare

Presented by: Eloise Lewis, Senior Technical Author | JHC Systems LTD.


Do you want to make your user assistance a more interactive experience? Guide users through a complex task? Offer an advanced troubleshooting tool? In this webinar, Eloise Lewis looks at how to create a click-through wizard within your MadCap Flare project for HTML5 Top Navigation outputs. Learn how wizards can be used in a whole range of scenarios, including (but not limited to) stepping users through a complex task and helping users select the correct tool. With the use of a few tags, some CSS and a little JavaScript, you too can transform your static content into a dynamic, user-led story.

MadWorld 2019 Dublin: Call for Presentations Now Open

MadCap Software is excited to announce the MadWorld 2019 Dublin Call for Presentations. The premier technical communication and content strategy conference returns to Europe next year to Dublin, Ireland.

Submission Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2019

Conference Dates: October 8-11, 2019

Conference Location: The Marker Hotel, Dublin, Ireland

This was my first time as a speaker at MadWorld (or any conference) and from start to finish the whole MadWorld experience has been great. I’d encourage anyone considering submitting a presentation to go for it! The conference has a really positive, supportive vibe to it, and the more diverse the speaker base is, the better it is for the community as a whole.

MadCap Software Named a 2018 Top Workplace

We’re excited to share that MadCap Software has been named a Top Workplace by the San Diego Union-Tribune. This award is especially meaningful, as organizations are selected based solely on the results of employee feedback about the company’s workplace culture.

MadCap Software has come a long way from our founding in 2005, here in San Diego. Since then, we’ve introduced innovative products to our customers, improved the way technical communicators create content, and expanded all over the world—none of which would have been possible without our team.

–Anthony Olivier, CEO
