Online Help is provided for Enterprise Portal. The online help contains generic help topics for each standard page type. When you create pages, you should configure the new pages to display the generic help topic for that type of page. The following table lists the page types and the corresponding WSSHelpTopic property value that specifies the generic help topic for that page type.

Page type

WSSHelpTopic value

Role Center page


Site Home page


List page


Entity Overview page


Task page


If you create your own help collection for SharePoint, use the key values that correspond to topics in your help collection when you specify the help topic to display for a page.

To connect a help topic for a page

  1. Be sure the page has been imported into the AOT. For details about doing this, see How to: Import Pages into the AOT.

  2. In the AOT, expand the Web node, and then expand the Web Files node.

  3. Expand Page Definitions node.

  4. Right-click the page for which you want to specify a help topic, and then click Properties.

  5. Set the WSSHelpTopic property based on the values in the previous table. For example, if you create a list page, set the WSSHelpTopic property to MSEP_EPListPage.

  6. Save the changes in the AOT.
