As of the 1.0 release, administrators are able to define help for the following parts of the interface:

  1. Pages
  2. Components
  3. Buckets
  4. Slots

How to open help

There are two places where in-app help is available:

  1. The question mark icon visible on the right side of the page banner. Clicking on this icon will open the help sidebar and search the page for applicable help. If help is found for the page being viewed, it will be shown immediately. Otherwise, a table of contents will show with all of the applicable help articles for elements of the page.
  2. If enabled, help icons will show next to slots that have help defined for them.

Help parametrics

On the bucket parametrics page, there are three settings for in-app help:

  • Enabled - shows the question mark icon on the right side of the page banner. Help icons will show next to slots when the help sidebar is activated.
  • Enabled with Contextual Help - shows the question mark icon on the right side of the banner. Additionally shows question mark icons next to slots that have help defined for them.
  • Disabled - all question mark icons are turned off by default.
