Getting Started With Scribe’s Technical Design Document Generator
Step 1: Capture your any technical design process
Once you've decided on the components, modules or features you want to cover in your technical design document, install and turn on the Scribe extension or desktop app.
Then, click "Start Recording". Scribe's intuitive interface will write clear and concise descriptions as step-by-step instructions documenting each step as you navigate the process.
Step 2: Stop Capturing and Generate Your Technical Design Process
Once you’re done with recording your technical design document process, click "Stop Recording". Scribe will auto-generate your documentation based on your keystrokes and clicks in a few seconds.
Step 3: Edit and Customize Your Documentation
Once you've finished the process, Scribe will auto-generate a step-by-step document based on the captured screenshots and text.
You can edit the documentation to add information or clarify any steps at this stage.
You can also customize by adding tips, updating steps and annotating screenshots. Ask AI to add titles, descriptions and additional context.
Use the AI features in Page to combine multiple documents with text and video to build out more comprehensive documentation (see Step 4).
Step 4: Ask AI to Write Your Documentation
With Pages, you can transform a blank page into a comprehensive and contextual document with just a few AI prompts.
Tell Scribe's AI what type of document you want to create, any tools you plan to cover, and who your audience is. The AI will generate an outline for your TDD.
To complete your TDD, create comprehensive documentation by adding multiple Scribes, videos, images, and other multimedia elements in Scribe Pages.
Scribe supports dozens of video platforms, including YouTube, Loom, Vimeo, Jumpshare, Vidyard, Canva, Gong and TikTok.
Pro users can add custom branding, edit screenshots, redact sensitive information, and more.
Step 5: Store and Share Your TDD With Your Team
Make your technical design document easily accessible to the relevant stakeholders. Teammates can comment, provide feedback and react to your Scribes so that you don’t miss any critical feedback.
Sharing documentation is easy. You can:
- Send a quick link.
- Export your guide into formats like PDF, HTML, and Markdown.
- Share the link via your Scribe workspace.
- Embed the guide into your preferred channels or platforms for seamless integration.
Technical design documents are essential, especially for larger and more complex software projects. With Scribe, you can quickly and easily create detailed TDDs that will help you streamline your processes and improve your team's productivity.
