Add Dynamic Help to a Page

Page help text can be added to any page in a custom WebApp. To view page help, open the page. The help displays below the Navigation pane in the Information pane.

NOTE: Dynamic help can also be added for columns. Hover a cursor over a column heading that has dynamic help defined, and page-level help is hidden until the user closes the dynamic help for the column.

Refer Add Column Help Text for more information.
