Create change-controlled documents from Slack

For a while now, you’ve been able to use our Slack bot, sqrbot-jr, to create new technical notes. Now, we’ve added support for change-controlled documents such as LDMs, LSEs.

Open a new direct message with sqrbot-jr and type:

project create

Select the new template from the menu: Change-controlled doc (lsstdoc LaTeX).

Fill in the prompts:

Notice that the “handle” is a free-form text field. For change-controlled documents, you’ll enter the handle that was assigned to your document by DocuShare. This handle also becomes the name your document’s repository and publication subdomain.


This new procedure is documented for your reference in the DM Developer Guide.
