Creating intranet content: a guide for everyone

Writing guide collage

This is a set of short guidelines to creating intranet content for people who are not full-time communicators.

Each section is a 1-2 page summary of tips and examples covering a single topic, such as adding links or adding images. Sections are designed to be read individually, so you don’t need to read the whole guide for them to make sense.  At the end is a checklist that you can use as a quick reminder of things to do.
