Preparing Master Documents and Subdocuments

You can see the benefits of working with master and subdocuments—especially if you’re managing a large project. Like anything else that requires the cooperation of a number of people, it’s best to start with a plan. Take some time to consider all the different aspects of your document and plan the types of assignments you want to make before you get started. Be sure to create a table or listing of various assignments that will enable you to track the different parts of your document.

Tip

Create an assignment list

You might want to use Word’s Table of Contents (TOC) feature to automatically generate a table of contents that you can use as an assignment list. If you have a large project with many different pieces (and as many team members), you’ll need to track the list so that you know who has which piece. For more about using Word’s TOC feature, see Chapter 21, “Generating First-Class Tables of Contents and Related Elements.”
