Seriously, systems training on generic content, far away in time of the actual launch, no context, half-baked flow… If you can, create short, task-based demos relevant to roles that can be accessed on-demand. Best to use worked examples in a training or sandbox environment with a support line to ask questions. Don’t waste your time on step-by-step “show-me-try-me” clicks. By the time you build one, it’s outdated.
