Part: VI Appendixes > Final Thoughts on Documentation

Final Thoughts on Documentation

This appendix has covered a variety of methods for documenting FileMaker systems. The specifics of the documentation standards that you adopt may vary with every project. Ideally, system documentation should contain enough information for another developer to completely re-create the system, using the documentation that you've created as his or her only information source. Clearly, maintaining complete and up-to-date documentation is a time-consuming task. However, many systems that you create will exist longer than expected. Systems are likely to outlive your association with the project. As a developer, you need to thoroughly understand the importance of system documentation and convey its necessity to your client or employer. Developing a workflow with a goal of producing quality documentation can produce substantial benefits in the life of each project.
