2014.01.27: BoardDocs Update - BoardDocs Help

BoardDocs user documentation was previously delivered in PDF documents, and while these documents have always provided comprehensive instructions on how to make effective use of the many powerful features provided by BoardDocs, information could become quickly outdated as new features were introduced or as existing features were enhanced. To address this issue, we recently moved our documentation to a searchable online format, accessible from the BoardDocs website, to ensure that our subscribers could receive the most accurate and up-to-date instructions on how best to maximize their use of BoardDocs.

What is included in the update?

We are pleased to announce that you may now access on-line help from directly within BoardDocs! With this latest enhancement, you will now have access to the following features:

  • Instructions that are specific to your assigned role and service type
  • Easy topic navigation
  • Searchable content
  • The ability to rate help articles and provide feedback 
  • Linked topics
  • The ability to initiate a support question directly from within a help article that you are reading
