help for custom help?

I'm trying to implement global and table-level help in my model-driven app. The system is properly configured but I'm not sure what to do next.

This is what I want to happen:

  • for records
    • navigate to a record
    • click the standard ? button in the top right corner
    • see table-specific help
  • in general
    • click the standard ? button in the top right corner
    • see clickable list of general help topics

This is what I'm not sure of:

  • do I create help while I'm on a page in my app OR do I create help on a Help form and associate it with a custom entity?
  • If I create help while in the front-end of my app, how do I distinguish general help (which should be available from anywhere) from context-specific help?
  • can I have different help for each tab of a form?
  • will the help I create in my dev environment be included when I export my solution to another environment?
  • Where will my custom table help be found if I leave the Help URL field blank?


If anyone has functional examples to share, I'd really appreciate it.  The docs are decent for configuring the environment to allow custom help. But I can't find much about what to do after.
