Create a Help Page for the Candidate Object

We highly recommend that you create help pages for your custom objects. It’s easy to provide useful information about your object by using a simple Visualforce page. Your users will thank you!

Let’s create a simple Visualforce help page to reference from your Candidate object.

  1. From Setup, enter Visualforce Pages in the Quick Find box, then select Visualforce Pages.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter a label for your page — for example, Job Candidate Help.
  4. Enter a unique name for the page — for example, Job_Candidate_Help.
  5. In the Visualforce Markup area, enter information about your custom object. You might want to include dependencies, next steps, or other tips for using the object.
    For example:

    1 <h1>Help for the Candidate Object</h1>
    3     <p>The Candidate object is for identifying and tracking individual candidates for job positions.</p>
    4     <p>Sort candidates by Name, Location, Last Modified, and Prospect Rating.</p>
  6. Now let’s reference the help page you just created from your Candidate object. To do this, we’ll edit the Candidate object.
    1. In the Setup Quick Find box, type Object.
    2. Under Create, click Objects.
    3. Click Edit next to the Candidate object’s name.
    4. Select Open a window using a Visualforce page and choose the page you created.
      Custom object help display setting
    5. Click Save.
When your users click the Help for this Page link on a Candidate record, they’ll see the helpful information that you provided about the Candidate object.
