Help Guides are topic based, step-by-step instructions. As we add new features, we may create help documentation in existing guides or create new guides. If you are looking for help, look at the list of available guides and choose the one that best matches your needs. If you aren’t sure, you can use the site-wide search tool on the home page.
You can see which Help Guide you are in by scrolling to the top header. Below is an example of the header for the Reports Help Guide. Search within a guide to limit results to that guide only. This is helpful, for example, if you know you need information on a specific section like Reports or Dashboards and don’t want to sift through unrelated search results.
You can also download and print the entire guide as a PDF if you want to have an offline or paper copy.
