I’m looking for a product that allows a small team to easily read/write documentation (including attachments) as well as any tips/tricks that would otherwise be stashed away in random chat messages or e-mails.
I came to this community because we’re currently using Sharepoint and it’s so terrible that everyone has pretty much stopped using the site. I’m almost looking for a combination of a text editor like Bear (minus its current lack of table support) and the zen feeling of Things–beautiful, functional, and powerful when used properly.
My basic requirements:
- Native app (or Electron I suppose ) for macOS and iPadOS. Must also support a lone Windows user with either a native app or a web app, but if that is too constraining we may be able to make other arrangements for him.
- Support for attachments
- Support Spotlight for quick searching
- Support for tables
- WYSIWYG editor (Markdown is a bonus!)
- User friendly while still being powerful
I’m sure it’s asking too much, but I’d love a product that logs the searches people perform so we can identify gaps in our documentation so that if results aren’t found, we can either add a new page or tweak the language on an existing page (so it’s more discoverable).
I’ve looked at:
- Notion, but I’m not sure how I feel about it so far. It may be too open-ended for our group.
- Confluence, and while nice, it lacks native applications
- Using a generic git repository so that others could use their app of choice + markdown, but I worry a few folks would be unwilling to learn markdown and would likely struggle with the Git concepts like push/pull/merge.
I would really appreciate any suggestions / conversation on the topic!
