Hi PH community 👋 Around a year ago I was working for a startup that was using Google Docs/Drive for their internal documentation. I found that it wasn't really ideal for content sharing and finding information, and no one was really using it because of this! You need a wiki is here to solve that... It takes all the best parts of Google Docs (Editing, formatting, versioning), sprinkles some wiki functionality on top, and creates something that you and your team will hopefully want to use and be compelled to contribute to. Some of the key features: ✅ View all your pages at once with the tree menu ✅ Navigate between pages quickly ✅ See who edited the page last ✅ Create links to other pages with a select and click ✅ Read only mode, no more accidental updates ✅ Leverages the power of Google docs Create a wiki for free now and start sharing knowledge with your team!

@grantkiely Great work! At my first internship last summer our wiki/documentation was with confluence and it was downright awful. It neither succeeded at including all the work within it, nor at least organizing links to external content. A poor wiki system really is just about the worst thing possible for a company. Communication is vital.

@theodorasarahabigail Thank you so much Theodora! I appreciate your patience with the log in. You are right, there are some applications outside of a wiki that I had not even considered! I’m also looking to add more features! You can see them here: https://ynaw.nolt.io

Just wanted to pop in here and say congratulations on the launch, @grantkiely 🎉 Love seeing new approaches to wikis and agree with you that most teams need a wiki. Love the idea of building on top of Google Docs and think that's really smart. Good luck!
