Help us help you

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you are probably already aware that we monitor your comments closely. In fact, we’re always looking for ways to get feedback from MATLAB users. Along with the great feedback we get through technical support and our user surveys, we’re continually checking the file exchange and the MATLAB Newsgroup for your ideas.

Our documentation group is just as interested in hearing from you as our developers are. Starting with R2007b, nearly every page in the Help browser includes links to a feedback form at the top

and bottom

of the page. The online documentation on our web site contains links to the same feedback form.

You can be as specific as you want about the page you’re commenting on – the form keeps track of which page you were viewing when you clicked on the feedback link. Or, if you couldn’t find what you were looking for, feel free to give us feedback about the page on which you expected to find a topic. Each request will be routed to the appropriate writer and taken into consideration for the documentation of the next release. If you include your email address in your feedback, you can expect to hear back from the writer with any comments or questions they might have, as well as a summary of any action they are taking as a result of your feedback.

So, if you couldn’t have done your job without our documentation, let the writer know. If you think you have an example that’s even better than the one we provide, we want to know about that too. We’ve already gotten lots of good feedback from you; nearly half of the comments we have received have directly resulted in improvements and corrections in our documentation. You’ve shown us that you can make our documentation better, and we want you to keep it up. Our documentation team looks forward to hearing from you!
