  • Multi-language support.Users can easily switch between English and German language versions of the documentation.
  • Version control.New versions of corresponding documentation are noted and users can easily select the version that matches their firmware.
  • Instant feedback. Users can quickly and easily provide feedback on the Knowledge Base including comments or change requests with the click of a button that opens up an e-mail in their local app that is pre-populated with the subject line and URL.
