Good question...

The work flow or "how to" method of writing GEMS docs is very important.  It
makes sense to an election official/programmer because it most probably
follows their current system and/or experience.  It can also be a good
training tool.

However, I also don't think that you will be able to get away from
describing commands, fields, views, menus and buttons because eventually it
will used for GEMS online help screens.

So in my humble opinion, you may have to follow both methodologies.

>I am putting together the Operations Manual for GEMS and would like input
in choosing between two options.  The old documentation follows two
different logic patterns.  One way the guide follows the workflow of the
election process.  The other way documents and defines according to the
menu, fields or views.
