    Standards Knowledge Network (SKN) User Guide


    Overall Background

    While we indent to at least build a minimal viable platform by the switch-over point in January 2021 to continue the SMPTE due process we strive to continue to improve the platform once the switch-over is behind us. This document will be continuously updated to provide guidance on how the SMPTE due process is implemented in Microsoft 365 (MS 365), Teams, GitHub and any other applications which form the SMPTE platform.
