One Button Help: Learn About Any Field Fast

Article Highlights:

  • Easily access screen details with F1 Help.
  • Help is context-specific, pulling up details for your current field.

Have you ever skipped over a field in ERA-IGNITE because you didn’t know what the field was? The F1 Help feature follows you everywhere you go, and is equipped with the information you need to confidently navigate through ERA-IGNITE. All you need to do is press F1.

The information in the F1 Help screen is context sensitive, which means it recognizes which field and screen your cursor is in when you select Help.
