Writing Steps

When writing steps, determine what a user needs to do first, next, and last. Write clearly so that a user understands exactly what to do. To write concise steps, follow these guidelines:

  • Number the steps.

  • Make each step short and equivalent to one action.

  • Write each step as a complete sentence in the imperative mood.

  • Write meaningful steps.

  • Use branching of steps appropriately.

  • Review and refine steps and procedures.
