  • What is a Wiki and what can I use it for?


  • SAP Jam.



  • A wiki is a place where multiple people can collaborate and contribute to the same piece of information.  This information is kept current because anyone (either the people in a group or anyone in the company depending on where the wiki was made), can edit the wiki and make sure it is up to date.
  • Visually, a wiki can range from a simple text document to a rich media experience.  An easy to navigate toolbar allows you a range of options - from text formatting to the inclusion of links, images and even external documents and video.
  • Wikis can be used for just about anything.  Any document or piece of information  that needs to be updated by one or more people can be a wiki – the possibilities are nearly endless!


For instance:

  • Planning Meeting Agendas/Meeting notes
  • Schedules
  • Project Management
  • Company or Department Documentation and Operation Manuals
  • FAQs
  • Event Coordination
  • Track Goals and Deadlines
  • Job Descriptions
  • IT Network Instructions
  • Onboarding – New Hire Information
  • Company/Product Best Practices
  • Department Knowledge Base
  • To Do and Check Lists
  • And so many more!
