Submit Content to the Solution Store

This article explains step by step what is required to make a submission to the RequirementONE Solution Store.

We also suggest that you have a look at this page about being a content author before you make a submission.

Different kinds of templates

You can currently submit the following types of templates: 

These are all high-level entities that form the foundation for each of the apps listed.

Instructions 

  1. Login to RequirementONE.
  2. Select the project were you have the data you want to publish (if you are a regular content author we recommend adding a dedicated project for this).
  3. Navigate to any of the apps.
  4. Hover over the entity that you want to submit to the Solution Store and click on configure (little blue cog).
  5. Enter a simple but descriptive name. Use up to 100 words to described details of what the template is for and how should it be used. We recommend that you re-use this description for your Help Center article (step 7)
  6. Make sure that you have uploaded a logo (e.g: company logo) for the template.
  7. Create an article in the Help Center using this Solution Template
  8. Scroll down to the 'Solution Store' section and click on 'publish to store'.
  9. Select 'language' from the drop down (e.g. English) that corresponds to the language of the template.
  10. Select 'category' from the drop down that best fits your template. Read more about categories under content author.
  11. Copy and paste the link to the template article on the forum
  12. Set a price, based on research of similar products on the marketplace. Enter a one-off price in US dollars ($) that a user will be charged for buying the template for a single project e.g. 0, 5, 19.95, 200. 0 means that the template is free to use.
  13. Click OK.

Your template has now been submitted for review by the RequirementONE team. We might make small adjustments to the text to make sure that it presents itself in the best possible way.

We will also get in touch if have any significant comments regarding the content or price - we strive to process any submission within 72 hours, although this is dependent on the scope of the solution.

You will get an email notification that your template has been published to the Solution Store.

Questions?

Then please get in touch via the helpdesk and we look forward to working with you.

    Hi!

    I would like to create templates related to my industry but I am not sure about the balance between generic templates and very specific templates?

    We suggest that you start wtih templates that are general in nature and then you can supplement with more templates later that are specific to certain types of industries or products.

    Let's try to a look at an example for a 'Specification template' for regular desktop based software.

    The general template would contain (in this case simplified) categories and requirements (prefixed by ‘R’) literally like this i.e. general in nature:

    1. Overview
    • R1 System overview
    • R2 List of system components

    • User interface

    • Use cases

    • R3 Flow 1

    • R4 Flow 2

    • Screens

    1. i. R5 Screen A
    2. ii. R6 Screen B
    • Features

    • Feature 1

    • R7 Feature 1 details

    • R8 Feature 1 details

    • Feature 2

    • R9 Feature 1 details

    • Hardware requirements

    • R10 RAM

    • R11 Resolution

    • R12 Hard Drive

    A specific template should be for a CRM System (many different useful specifications could be defined):

    1. Overview
    • R1 CRM overview
    • R2 List of system components

    • User interface

    • Use cases

    • R3 Login

    • R4 Add customer

    • iii. Etc.

    • Screens

    • R5 Customer view

    • Etc.

    • Features

      • Customer record
    • R6 Customer fields and validation

    • R7 Customer report

    • Etc.

    • Hardware requirements

    • R8 Desktop / laptop

    • R9 4GB RAM

    • R11 1024 * 768 resolution

    • R12 50GB Hard Drive

     

    With that said you will have to decide on whether it makes sense to include the general sections in a single specification for the general use template and maybe do separate templates with variations for these components or not?

    It could be that for specialized templates that all these categories are included and maybe keep some of them generic and or mostly empty to keep the overall structure and populate e.g. the feature section.

    So we end up with the template(s) being best practice and generic that users can use as a guideline and adapt and then you can add more templates for specific project variation that you think will have a general appeal.

    How do users that have purchased/copied a template to their project get easy access to the corresponding article on the forum?

    That is a good question. They can of course always go to the forum and do a search however a link to the forum article is automatically appended to the description for the copied template.

    So just just go to the settings (configure) by clicking on the little blue cog for your specification, project plan or questionnaire to see the details and direct link to the specific forum article.

    Is there a possibility to create a template for on of the Apps like Specification and save this one for own usage? When creating a new specification there would be an option to select an earlier used template or a saved template.

    Hi fbolder,

    That is a request we get frequently and the feature is included on the road map for release later this year (private organizational templates).
