Hi all!I'm pretty new to TechComm (have been at it about 6 months) and was formerly a librarian.

Target Audience Placement in Doc

Started by Rick Fox in Software and Stuff. Last reply by Jeffrey Gantner Oct 14. 4 Replies

I think the Target Audience section should be in the Preface of each document (PDF deliverables), where readers see it right away and will know if it is aimed at them.One of my co-workers wants it placed at the end of the first chapter/section. He feels that if the readers want to know the target audience, they can search for it or will see it in the navigation pane.Opinions? Thanks.Continue
