Hello and welcome to our introduction session on Redmine Wiki Guide Plugin in about 7 minutes.

Knowledge management via Wiki - not only interesting for remote working teams.

Some Facts

Amazon, GitLab & Co.

Do you think that only large organizations store content transparently and easily accessible to their employees in a wiki? Well, you are wrong. It is important for any company. Regardless of the size.

Knowledge means power

Company-relevant knowledge is a valuable asset for your employees. And a central resource that everyone should have access to at any time.

Reduce the risk

Are you also still a fan of collections of Word, Excel and PDF documents?

You recognize the error, at the latest, when you no longer have information available, that you need most.

Due to absent or lost employees the risk for the core business is high. It always results in a large gap of missing or outdated information.

Typical problems when knowledge is in documents instead of platforms

  • Documents are more difficult to link in Redmine
  • Searching for specific content is difficult
  • The chance that documents disappear or become obsolete is too high
  • Data access by unauthorized third parties (e.g. wrong email recipient) is easily possible

What you should do!

Start using Redmine Wiki as a documentation tool

Redmine is a web application for project management.

It is great at helping manage projects, tasks, versions and providing insight into activities.
Among other things, the integrated wiki can be used to store project-relevant information.

Briefings, concepts, specifications, meeting records, instructions for users and much more can be stored in the Wiki and made available centrally to your team.

This way, tasks and related information are always just a click away from each other for your users.

The idea behind the Wiki Guide plugin

The Wiki Guide plugin is an add-on to the traditional Redmine Wiki.

It extends it with typical knowledgebase functions.

Among other things, it provides a cross-project Find-as-you-type search.

So what?

At first glance, this may not seem very spectacular, but it has far-reaching consequences:

  • it allows a quick start, because it works with the already existing wiki content.
  • it improves the usability and thus the popularity of the wiki usage enormously.

Users with respective permission can set a wiki page confidential or view confidential pages. This makes content only available to a special group of users. Use this function if you want to prepare your content before release.
