Added: Norwegian translation for interface of live manuals

New: Auto-number your topics

May 10th, 2017

Another new feature today: Automatic numbering of your topics.
This was requested by user Tiana and I must admit: I was a bit hesitant about this one initially. I mean, Manula is all about interactive online manuals, so who needs numbered topics?

But then she explained:

“Well, we do a lot of phone support, and we often need to refer people to a manual topic for further info. And then it really helps if we can just say: look at chapter 3.3.2.”

Which makes a lot of sense :-) So we implemented it.
And now it’s live, I must say it is pretty cool. In fact, I suspect many users will switch this on.

Thank you Tiana for suggesting this!

The Auto-Number setting can be found in the Manual Settings screen, on the Customization tab:

New: receive email notifications about topic comments

May 8th, 2017

This is (or was) by far the most common request from our customers:

* Can I get notifications by email if people comment on my topics?

Finally, here’s the answer: Yes, this is now possible!

In the Manual Settings screen, on the Feedback tab, enable the “Email notifications …” checkbox. (now enabled by default). And if you wish, enter 1 or more email addresses to receive the notifications. If you leave this box empty, the notifications will be sent to the account email address.

New: Upload PDF files and other documents, then link to them from your manual topics

April 25th, 2017

insert-document-buttonOne of the more common questions we get at Manula Support is:

“Can I upload PDF files and offer them as downloads from my manual?”

Our answer has always been:

“No sorry, you cannot upload PDF files, but you can upload them to your own website or a 3rd party file hosting service, then link to them using a regular website link”.

But as of today, our answer to this question will be:

“Yes, you can! Just use our Document Manager to upload your files to our server, then easily insert links to the files into your topics :-)

Now live in your account. Enjoy!
