For 24 years, I’ve worked entirely in software, and writing has always played a role. I’ve published over 200 blog posts over 10 years at tomresing.com. In 2013, I co-authored a book that received 4.5 stars from 39 ratings on Amazon.com. For the past 5 years at Microsoft, I’ve focused on UX writing and content design.
For the last year and a half I’ve been the lead content designer on two new products. This portfolio includes highlights from my recent content design work, focusing on the UX writing for the products.
- SharePoint Syntex allows model builders to automatically identify file types and pull information from them. It was released at Microsoft Ignite last October.
- Microsoft Viva Topics shows you info about topics that are important to your work. It was released on February 4th at a special launch event announcing the full Microsoft Viva platform.
Microsoft Viva Topics – topic recommendations
Viva matches you with topics you’ve worked on. The following screenshot is an example of how I was matched and how I confirmed my connections with some topics. For a deep dive on this example, read how I applied heuristics to improve this experience (on tomresing.com).
