Help Documentation

All of our TouchPoint documentation is online and is comprised of ‘how-to’ articles, definitions, or processes with other links to provide further information when needed. We also have links to videos and some articles have videos directly embedded in the article.

TouchPoint Documentation can be accessed by clicking ? Help located in the top right corner of your database.

This will open another tab in your browser, leaving the TouchPoint page on the original tab. You can easily return and continue working.

Note

We ask that you please try to search the documentation website before contacting Support. If you do not easily find the answer to your question then please send a detailed support request.

Searching for Answers

After you enter a key word and press Search, you will come to the Search Page for the documentation where you will see a list of matches. You can click the one that appears most relevant to your question.

Browser Tabs

When you click on a link, a new tab will open for the help article. At this point, you still have the following tabs open in your browser:

  • The original tab for your TouchPoint database. Click that tab to return to work.
  • The Help / Search tab where you can return if you need to submit a support request.
  • And the tab with the help article.

Search Options

After you initially enter a key word and press Search you will be on the Search Page where the list of matches will display. You can click a link to open the help article or you can search again. You have two options for searching the documentation using Support IQ search - Quick Search or normal Search.

  • Enter a key word or phrase relating to your question in the Quick Search box in the top right of the screen and, as you type, a list will display below the text box displaying top hits matching your search term. Select one of those if you see what you need. To view the entire list of matches press Enter, press the Search icon, or select View All at the bottom of the list.

Normal Search

Documentation Homepage

If you are viewing the Documentation Homepage, you will still have access to the Quick Search box. It will continue to display in the top right corner of the screen even when you are viewing a help article. This makes it so easy for you to find another article without having to return to your database and click ?Help again.

Index

Click the Index for a glossary list of keywords or concepts. Each is a link to help article where that word / concept is defined as it is used in TouchPoint.

Tip

The Index is a good place to look first.

Categories

This page displays the various categories. We have quite a few of them, each with help articles relating to that category. Just click the icon or More info for the category you are interested in. This will display the list of articles relating to that topic, grouped by type.

Recently Updated

This is a list of the help articles that have been updated in recent days / weeks. We are continually working to improve our documentation; so, just because an article has been updated, does not necessarily mean there is a new feature described. Sometimes, we rewrite articles in order to make the explanation easier to understand or change a screenshot when there has been a minor change.

Tip

Once you click one of the categories, and then select an article, there are ‘breadcrumbs’ to allow you to very easily return to the previous article(s) you have viewed.
