A Manual

Click on a manual to see an organized collection of ScreenSteps chapters and articles. Here is an example of a manual on ScreenSteps:

  1. Manual title.
  2. Chapter title - A chapter is just a grouping of articles in a manual.  It is a way for you to sub-divide your articles and better organize your content.
  3. Article - this is a link to an article in the manual.  When the user clicks on it they will be able to view that article.

Two questions: can I control access at a manual level rather than a site level? or if not, can I provide a link to my users that takes them to a specific manual when they log in so they don't have to choose? thanks.

@Bridget: While you can't control access to a particular manual, you can control access to articles within a site. This article shows how: http://help.screensteps.com/m/managing/l/788132-viewing-permissions-for-articles

Just make all of the articles in a manual available to a particular group.

You can also send users a url that points directly to a specific manual in your site. Each manual, chapter, and article in ScreenSteps has a unique url that you can copy in your browser and send to someone.
