Is there anyone at Autodesk here to respond to this?
There is a tonne of amazing help on this forum that might rendered less useful if all the old links to documentation become broken.
This isn’t the only case either, I’ve found quite a lot of links within the api documentation also no longer resolve.
First, I want to say thank you for the feedback, and apologies that the transition is a challenge. I’ve moved into a content experience design role and have been working to making documentation improvements based on feedback. But to begin the transition, we copied the documentation directly from our old documentation site over to the new Autodesk Knowledge Network, but have made some more updates based on feedback to try and improve the experience:
We updated the presentation of the documentation so that it’s now organized by role. The hope was that users could quickly identify what is relevant to their roles, rather than features, etc.
All developer documentation is now available via the developer documentation site, to keep it focused in that area and continue the same flexibility this site has provided. We’ve also added some more content to this site, including additional workflows and common error messages with solutions that were surfaced in the community.
Here’s a rundown of where you can find things in the new structure, and I hope this is helpful:
Product Documentation: Help. This main landing page includes common links visited, like links to developer and RV docs. This is a good one to bookmark.
@sichoi , is there anything in particular that you’re looking for? I am happy to help you find the right material in the new structure. And yes, we do have the old material backed-up, but it’s now considered out of date and we no longer maintain old documentation.
@Patrick , I completely agree , this forum has a ton of incredible information. This is something worth considering for sure.
@k_zananas I urge against referencing any older documentation since we update so frequently. Let me know if this is something specific you are looking to find as well and I’m happy to jump in.
Hi again, I just wanted to quickly mention that I created a dedicated post here for helping everyone find the topics they are looking for. I’m happy to jump in whenever you mention me in a reply on another thread, or reply to this thread directly: Need help finding something?.
Gotcha - ok! Lots of folks are on break right now for the holidays, but I know the support team is still working away. If you put in a new support request to Contact Customer Support | Autodesk Knowledge Network, someone from the support team will be able to help gather what you need from the older site. I’m also tagging @Jmalan here for visibility.
