The Specification Workspace.

Creating a specification documents is easily with Masterspec's online tools & features.

The Masterspec workspace is where you create and manage projects. Use Masterspec's intuitive online workspace to add, edit and update specification sections for output. Save time by creating and saving Office Masters as well as the necessary supporting material to build a complete, finished specification document for your project.

The Workspace is split into four main parts:

  • the project overview and specification section list
  • the editing and updating panel - here you add, edit, update and organise attachments of technical and further information
  • the Masterspec Libraries and Office Masters panel
  • the Product Data interface, which intuitively offers up product information depending on the topic of the work section you are using

You can control the management of all projects, set output preferences, or keep up to date with the latest changes by using the Update Manager feature. On output, select technical documentation from the online manufacturer's document library.
