How can I create knowledge from any workflow?
A Spek is a bite-sized piece of custom knowledge. It can be used by your Team to document any process, step-by-step walkthrough, or term in your company for easy access. Speks can be used to embed "help" icons on a page or to document a "how-to" process.
Using the Spekit Chrome Extension, you can create knowledge from any application without leaving your workflow. You can do this from any other application in your tech stack. Follow the below process to see how to create documentation on the go.
