How To Publish Monday Docs as Public Documentation
In 2023, transparency means trust, and accessibility is a core component of stellar customer service. That’s why the demand for open-access to product and process documentation has skyrocketed.
Monday.com has long been a cornerstone for internal documentation creation and management. Yet, the leap from private to public documentation has traditionally required a series of external hosting and publishing tools that mean time, effort, and added complexity.
Basic info sharing with Monday.com docs
Monday docs have been instrumental in consolidating collective team knowledge. From intricate process manuals to comprehensive product guides, these documents breathe life into internal workflows. But how do you get this wealth of knowledge into the public domain in a polished, professional way—but with minimal effort?
Until recently, sharing these gems of wisdom publicly was restricted to monday.com’s various guest invite, link sharing, and export methods. However, these are better suited for onboarding temps and briefing investors, and less suited to information marketing, and showcasing accessibility and transparency for your clients.
The old way: external website hosting, building, & manual document export
Besides the various built-in methods, you could always hire someone to set up a website and manually transfer all of your Monday Docs there. Alternatively, you could set up your own website with the right host, the right website builder, the right knowledge, and plenty of time on your hands.
This is tedious though, potentially costly, and unfortunately it means exporting all of your docs from monday.com one by one, and so on. A drag, especially for documentation libraries that may be hundreds of pages deep. What’s more, there’s a technical finesse around good documentation sites, help pages, wiki’s, and the like that can be costly and complicated to achieve and maintain.
Sundae takes care of that stuff. It’s a streamlined website publisher that sits right on top of your Monday workspace so you can publish customized, responsive, and aesthetic websites straight from your Monday Docs, in just a few clicks.
