Creating an application guide

You can create an application guide to direct users through a set of tasks. By providing instructional information about your application, you can users learn about the functionality that your application provides, configure complex settings, or extend features with limited assistance.

Create a rule in the Application Definition > Application Guide rule category.

You add structure to an application guide by organizing related tasks into chapters. Each task can include instructional text and a link to supporting information, such as an external document or a landing page. When you open an application guide, you can quickly see who completed each task and how many tasks remain.

For example, you can create an application guide for migrating locally stored information to a database server. In the chapter for configuring your database, you can add tasks for creating tables, views, and users. In the task for creating users, you can supplement the instructions with a document that lists database privileges.
