I am documenting the site administrator and content creator roles for my web application which I am working on. The documentation manual walks the readers through how to add, delete, update members, news articles, and how to configure the site with different options.
I had one of the developers say that I should add screenshots of the pages on how to do these actions within the documentation also. Which, I think he is right, but at the same time, I do not.
I know if that the user can read, then he will be able to follow my instructions in my ordered list.
- First Step, click here
- Second Step, click this
- Third Step, type this
Should I add screenshots to the documentation manual? Would it also help with the ordered list of instructions to clarify things for users? Or should I stay with my method of using text only?
