  • Adam Muhammad Usman Namibia The novice according to this categorization is new and he needs to have basic knowledge of the user guide and trouble shooting, what could be the average time taken by a novice to become an intermediate user? The incidentals on the other hand are described as occasional users of information. this implies that a user can stay away from information so long as it is not relevant to his need.

  • Odongo Moses Uganda Documentation for different users, It is important to identify the user and their documentation requirements.When developing user documentation the level of knowledge and involvement should be considered. Documentation must be geared directly towards the needs of a particular user or group of users Users are normally categorized by their level of knowledge of the operation of the system: Novice:Need quick start guides, troubleshooting tips and user manuals that explain basic processes in detail Intermediate:Need more detailed user manuals which assume some prior knowledge, troubleshooting guides and simple technical guides Experts: Need manuals with explanation of complex or advanced features,Support specialists, usually software or hardware technicians whose role is to maintain the system? Specialists:These users depend on the use of information systems to do their work. They may include data entry operators, web developers and graphic designers. Adjunct:People for whom information technology assists them in their work but is not essential. This group includes medical staff, teachers, accountants, lawyers and store managers. Incidentals:Occasional users of an information system. Examples include a customer using a company's web-based product catalogue to order goods, accessing point-of-sale systems, or even interacting with an electronic switchboard with voicemail.
