✍️Contributing to handbook

This Handbook will always be a work in progress, and everyone is responsible for keeping it up-to-date and relevant.

You are encouraged to update the processes your team or the whole company uses. If your area does not have a section in the menu, go ahead and create one. Suggest a change if you notice some procedures have changed from what's been written.

Open vs Closed Information

Rocket.Chat is open by default. This means that unless something is explicitly prohibited from going public, it should be public. Examples of protected information are employee individual compensation and customer contracts.

Creating or Editing Pages

To create or edit pages within the Handbook, you must log in to Gitbook. If you don't have an account, send a message to Marcelo Schmidt to get an invitation link.

After you log in, click the Rocket.Chat Handbook link, then click the 2.0 version:

Then navigate through the menus and find where you want to edit or create a new page.

Then click the blue "Edit" button at the top-right portion of your screen.

If you want to edit the current text, click it and edit in place. You'll see a menu at the right of your editing text that allows you to format the text.

By hovering your mouse in between lines, you can insert a new paragraph by clicking the plus sign that shows up.

To upload images, just copy and paste them into the text.

To create a new menu item, hover between items and click the plus sign.

After you are done creating or editing, click the "Submit" button to create a Change Request that can be reviewed and merged.
