Use your wiki as a central repository and include signposts and links to documents stored elsewhere, for example in Google Shared Drives and websites.

Use the wiki in conjunction with the Google Suite and create a wiki front-end menu for Google drive folders and docs to improve navigation and make searching easier.

Give your wiki a logical, hierarchical, structure by adding ‘child’ pages to ‘parent’ pages.

Include a search function and restrict it to your Wiki - see macros for different search options.

To make your page more attractive and easier to read, use the Page layout button to divide it horizontally into columns or vertically into sections.  

Ensure that your wiki pages are accessible - use features such as the built-in header and paragraph styles, and use colour with care. See the Creating Accessible Documents page for more information.

Include a Google feedback or queries form to help users and build in ongoing user-directed changes.

Explore other non-restricted York wiki ‘spaces’ for ideas - try browsing the Space Directory for examples.

Use the ‘Watch’ option to see when collaborators have updated sections.

Use the ‘Coolors’ website to generate colour schemes and get html colour codes.

Create a simple team directory using the ‘Panels’ macro. See the Enterprise Projects Team Profiles for an example.

Spend some time working through this exercise to familiarise yourself with some basic techniques.
