Using the Sage 100cloud Built-In Help System

Whether you’re a Sage 100 newbie or seasoned pro, everyone gets stumped and needs a little help. Of course, you can always contact us to request phone or email support. But a lot of customers don’t realize that they can often find the answers they’re looking for built right into the software itself. Here’s a quick look at using the builtin Sage 100 Help Center.

Getting Help While You Work

Several sources of information are available to you in the Sage 100 software that are generally broken into the following categories:

  • Feature Tours articles and videos that walk you through a variety of product features.
  • Common Procedures stepbystep guides that answer “how do I?” questions.
  • FAQs & Troubleshooting answers to frequentlyasked questions and common problems.

The Help system is useful when you want to learn about procedures for daytoday processing, see detailed entry samples for fields, or troubleshoot common issues. In addition, you'll find flowcharts illustrating complex concepts.

Accessing the Help System

There are a few ways to launch the builtin help system including:

  • From the Desktop, select Help > Help Topics

  • Press F1 at any field in the software to access Help for that field (contextsensitive)

  • On the Standard Buttons toolbar or bottomright corner of any window, click the Help Button to access either global or taskspecific help topics, respectively.

Once you launch the Help system, the following tools guide you to the information you need:

Contents Tab access to the table of contents for the Help system, organized by key topics. Note that when you first launch Help, the welcome screen appears and the Contents tab is hidden so you’ll need to click the “Show” button at the top to reveal the various tabs and options.

Index Tab next to the Contents tab, the Index tab allows you to search for a specific topic by entering related keywords.

A given Help topic may contain procedural information, overview information, or guidance about a particular feature. These can include tutorials, video walkthroughs, examples that illustrate a concept or task, and so much more.
