ALM Help Center provides you with comprehensive user assistance. You can access the ALM Help Center on the Web, or install it locally on your ALM server.
By default, when clicking context-sensitive help, ALM links directly to the online ALM Help Center. This enables you to use the most recent version available of the ALM online help.
If your organization has firewall restrictions that prevent you from using the online Help Center, switch to the local mode and install the Help Center locally on your ALM server.
