Just Press F1 for Help!

Just Press F1 for Help!

We all know that it takes time getting to know a new software system or to expand on the knowledge we already have. At OnRamp we not only created a library of detailed tutorials to help users, we also developed the functionality to give users help instantly.

On every OnRamp screen, you will see in the bottom left corner a white lozenge with the words “F1 for Help”. If you are having difficulty understanding the terms used in certain screen fields just hit the F1 button.

Select the field you wish to know more about. When you press the F1 button a new window will appear with detailed information.

There are 4 tabs located on the left side of the window, Documentation, System, More and About. The first tab, Documentation, lists any supporting documents associated with the screen you are working with. When you click the “View” button a PDF will open with more information about the screen fields.

The System and More tab are primarily for IT troubleshooting. The About tab contains field details including a link to any screen that has associated data with the field. There is also a short description of the field.

The F1 for Help function can save a lot of time instead of hunting around tutorials for hours.
