This is part of a list of all possible contributions, you can check those in Contributing to iDempiere.

If you got to this website is because you're interested in contributing your knowledge, we thank you for that and want to provide you with all the assistance to make that possible!

These guidelines allow us to evaluate and judge video tutorial submissions, which will also improve documentation. These guidelines are not static and will be updated with time. If you have any suggestions please contact us in the marketing forums.


The purpose of these video tutorials is to provide the iDempiere community useful information from different topics allowing us to share and spread the knowledge throughout the community. The topic should be related to the official iDempiere software (no forks or private customizations) or a community plugin. It should be of interest to community members and professionals involved in the iDempiere project.
