The Glossary feature allows you to create a list of terms and phrases that will help users better understand the content. It's as easy as hovering over and we show you what the expression means!
What is an Article Glossary?
The Article Glossary is a simple way to define unique terms to your business or organization, and have the explanation/meaning be presented instantly to the user. You can think of it as a dictionary of terms.
After defining a term, all you need to do is use it, and Helpjuice will automatically insert the definition for it to be visible (on hover), when you save (or auto-save) an article.
If the Word/Expression is underlined, you can simply hover over and we will tell you what it means!
How does a term get displayed?
In the editor: You can simply click on the blue highlighted word, and you will see its definition pop-up.
In the knowledge base: Once viewing an article, you will see the term highlighted in a blue & dotted line under the word. Simply hover over it.
