Smart Documents for End Users
What will an information worker see when he or she works with a smart
document? In some cases, the experience might be completely transparent.
With the familiarity of Word and Excel task panes, users are now accustomed to
looking for help with tasks and procedures by going to the panel along the
right side of the work window. Because a smart document provides a
customized, document-specific task pane, users might not actually realize they are
working with smart-document technology.
The smart document is aware of the cursor position and can display
information in the task pane related to the worker’s specific task or action. The
information might take any number of forms, including these:
Displaying a listing of product names and numbers when the user
enters information in a specific field
Providing links to information related to the user’s current task
Prompting the user with the next step in a process
Giving suggestions for content or actions
