IT system detailed documentation template

Here is mine a IT-system documentation template. Once the documentation is in place it is widely used by developers, testers, users and management. Isn’t it much better to just refer to a paragraph in docs and send an URL to a colleague then describe the same thing over and over again in e-mails?
