?HELP? button in XCELSIUS/CRYSTAL DASHBOARD
HELP key is generally used to provide additional information about a page or logic behind a displayed result .
When we are developing a complex dashboard with complex business functionalities and hidden formulae , the actual meaning of some metrics or measures will not be clear to the users .
In such cases it becomes mandatory to have a HELP button near the measure displays or on a whole to display the information about a page itself .
But , how to achieve this in Xcelsius ? It is very simple! Though we do not have a direct help button , we can use the below trick to achieve it .
1. If the description about each page is not more than 100 words , then we can use a ‘On/Off button’ or a ‘Push button’ and link it to a label containing the description of the tab and display them using dynamic visibility by mouse over or mouse click . This will minimize your effort .
2. Another method is to use a URL button and give the link of a location where functional and technical documents are stored(usually a Sharepoint ).
Hope it Helps !
