Summary: this page describes how to use the Document-It feature.


The Document-It feature allows you to add detailed documentation to a view and also to specific objects or nodes. This documentation is in addition to tags or comments that you can add to your views:

The document popup will be displayed - fill in the title, description (i.e. the text you want to add) and optionally a Tag. You can add tags that you have already created using the  icon in the left menu bar, or create the tags directly in the Document:
