Using Master Documents

At its most basic level, a master document holds several separate files together. You might create a master document to handle the following projects:

  • A book-length manuscript in which each team member writes and edits one chapter.

  • A grant proposal in which different committee members are responsible for different pieces (for example, your executive director writing the Executive Summary, your financial officer providing the budget, and your development committee chairperson writing the objective and evaluation sections).

  • An annual report that’s a compilation of a number of different sections, including the introduction, the program descriptions, the donor thank-you section, and letters from clients served. Each person on your publications team could research and write a different piece of the report.

  • A technical manual that’s a collaborative effort between your IT department and a technical illustrator. After each chapter is written, you can send it as a subdocument to the illustrator, who can create and place the illustrations, and then return the subdocument to be integrated into the master.
