    Shared Network Documentation

    We're a small IT Department, just me and a techie. We put a helpdesk in, and it's revolutionised how we work, i use an iphone and my techie a windows phone and having a web tool has been awesome.

    Our documentation is currently mostly in word documents on a server share, and it's difficult to get access to on the go from a phone. So I was thinking about a wiki on the helpdesk server or something like evernote.

    I was wondering what do other people do?

    Same thing for documentation, but it is setup as WebDAV through iis, and can access through both iPhone, win phone or android using free apps.

    Does the helpdesk not have a knowledgebase system you could leverage for this?

    If everyone in you IT uses an iPhone you could think about put the documentation on iCloud, could be a bit pricey though not sure.

    I set up a WikiMedia web server, the biggest problem is keeping it up to date. We also have a shared technicians drive on the network that is accessible anywhere through a web interface.

    I started looking at Onenote also a while back, it seems to be excellent, even working well with online sharing from what I can see from Onedrive.

    We use onenote individually, but I've not been able to sort out notebook sharing. Apparently it's possible to create shared notebooks with office365 but I've not seen any guides on how to
