Report-Level Help and Documentation
Print this Page
 

Provide help for each report within a dashboard page as shown. The help link appears within a title view of that report.

The help content for a report is a view within the report. Create a static text view for the report and include the help content in that view.

Example:

You provide the link to the help content as shown:

Use the following syntax for the help URL:
saw.dll?GO&Path=/shared/796_Webcat_Refresh_Project/Sales/Competitors/Common/Win%20Loss%20Trend&ViewName=htmlview!1
i.e.
saw.dll?GO&Path=<path to the report>&ViewName=<name of view with help content>

You should name the help view content ViewName=htmlview!1 unless existing text views are already present in the report. In that case, increment the number 1 by the number of text views already present in the report. Consider removing obsolete views as described in the Basic Principles section of this document.
