Online Help

Online Help

Every view in PPM Pro is connected to an online help topic relevant to the current view. This is referred to as "context-sensitive" help. The context-sensitive topic is part of the CSC, so you can continue to navigate/explore additional topics.

To summon the context-sensitive help topic, click the help_icon.png or select Help Topics from the help menu - both are shown in the screenshot below.


Note that the online help reflects the product in its default form - because PPM Pro is highly configurable we can't ensure what you see in the documentation matches your configuration. If you see elements on your screen that are not referenced in the help, or vice versa, it likely means your instance of PPM Pro has been configured and is not displaying the default elements. Additionally, customers often change the labels of certain elements; for example, the project Issues entity is often renamed to Project Logs. 

Searching the Online Help

At the top of every page in the documentation is a search field that looks like the one below:


Sometimes its not clear where to look for certain information, in which case try using the search field.
