    We pay someone to do this, part time. Staff can book him or go to him during their free time and have one-to-one sessions, or group sessions if they book him during departmental time.

    In my experience, and in addition to the responses above, it's mostly a waste of time. They won't be read, your e-mails and notes to staff telling them where the stuff is will be ignored and forgotten. Unless you've been asked to do it, I'd just save yourself the time and effort.

    Since installing SpiceWorks, the usual problems have decreased, too. Forcing them to submit issues via the helpdesk and seeing a response to their repeatedly simple problems in writing seems to knock it into their heads better than writing how-to's.

    Not that I'm bitter or anything.
