NOT ACTIVE In Development Documentation Team


The aim of the documentation team is to provide a full suite of up to date documentation that allows our community to successfully install, deploy, configure, use, and maintain the Mifos X platform and the various apps they're using. This documentation consists of technical and non-technical guides including installation guides, user manuals, configuration guides, deployment guides, technical how-to's, etc. It will primarily live in the Documentation Section of this Wiki.

Current Priorities

Since the Mifos X platform and Community App, have just launched, we need to build out a full suite of documentation, deprecate our existing documentation, and streamline how this is all maintained and created. An outline of potential projects and priorities can be found at: Streamline Mifos X User Documentation

  • Installation Documentation: The community requires comprehensive and straight-forward documentation for installing Mifos X in Windows, Linux and Mac environments as well as deploying in cloud environments across multiple platforms. 
  • User Manual: We need to document end-to-end how each piece of functionality in Mifos X works and how it can be used by financial institution staff. 
  • Functional/Configuration Guides: To complement this end user documentation, we need functional specifications and a configuration guide that thoroughly explains the various parameters/settings/configurations in Mifos X. 
  • System Administration Guides: Administrators of Mifos X require documentation on how to optimally configure their system, secure their network, back up their data, etc. 
  • Technical Manuals: Documentation is needed in instructing external contributors, how to build out their development environment, build new features, build new apps, and in general contribute to the platform. 
  • Deployment Guide: We need to update for Mifos X, our six-step deployment recipe to ensure partners and users can smoothly implement Mifos X and maximize staff adoption. 
  • Community Engagement: General guides are needed to explain the various community collaboration tools that are available and how to sign up for and use them. 
  • Financial Inclusion: We need to compile existing documentation on financial inclusion into easy-to-follow materials to help onboard community members that are new to this domain. 
  • Training Curriculum: All the collective knowledge across using the product, building the product, and financial inclusion processes/operations needs to be packaged into training modules. 

We are actively seeking tech writers, project managers, and operational experts to join this team.
