We are generally an amperautoprompting shop and I am thinking of creating an MRE report help facility.
The idea would be to create a spreadsheet with two columns one containing the report id and one containing the help info. (Nothing as sophisticated as context sensitive help!)
However I am sure that vast cool intelligences must have looked upon this problem from afar in previous times so I would be interested how other forum members handle the problem of help for reports in MRE.

Actually, there is a sort of a help facility available for domains in MRE. Every domain has its own folder within the basedir, and in this folder are three more folders. The app folder is the one that contains the procedures, and also the help-file for that domain. This help file gets loaded into the browser when you click on the help icon in the mre toolbar (the rightmost icon). Whatever is in this help file will get shown. Hope this helps.

Yes only MR applet user interface has the option to view the contents within the domain help file. There is project 85280 (MIP 102853) tracking the new feature request to enhance Dashboard. If you would like to be informed of when the NF is implemented in Dashboard please open a case with Customer Support. FYI, we are actively working on enhancements in Dashboard for MR Admins and Developers to create Standard Reports and Reporting Objects for the next major NF release.
