SAP Process Automation: Help right where you need it

We’ve just launched in-app help on project level. It provides all relevant information to help you understand how to build processes using the right capabilities. You find this embedded help in each of the following editors:

  • Process builder
  • Forms editor
  • Automations editor
  • Data type editor
  • Decisions editor
  • Visibility scenario editor

What’s in it for You?

The embedded help for these editors provides the following benefits:

  • In-app What’s New: You get a list of select features in the What’s New embedded help.
  • Context-sensitive help: You only get information for elements that are currently visible on the screen.
  • Short explanations:Concise help concerning an editor, a UI element, a dialog, or a view.
  • No need to search externally for help:The information is directly shown when working on the screen – including a direct link of the current selection to the complete, official documentation.

How do you access the Embedded Help?

When you log on to SAP Process Automation for the first time and create your first business process, you get a message and can simply follow the link to the in-app What’s New list:

The list opens on the right-hand side showing the tiles for the new features.

Features List

You see the short description right away. When you click any feature, you access a screen with a graphic and more details. Most tiles have a link that directly points to the relevant documentation on SAP Help Portal.

While building a process and opening new editors, you see only information that’s relevant for the options on the current screen. Let’s say, you choose to create a process. Then, in the process builder, the help relevant for this editor is displayed. On hover-over, the text tiles are connected to the areas in the editor.
