Imagine not being able to find the fastest route to your destination while enjoying a road trip in an old-school car! What would you do in such a situation? You are quite helpless, right? Now, imagine getting stuck in the same situation, but in this case, your car has a Satellite Navigation (SatNav) system installed. With a SatNav, you can find the fastest route with the least traffic in a jiffy. A SatNav system makes our lives much easier when we are visiting unknown places.
In Clarity 3D Workbench, we have introduced a similar navigation system in the Set Up Computer Resources dialog box to make your life much easier. This navigation system is called the task assistant.
The task assistant is an in-tool help access medium that offers quick resolutions to the most relevant getting started questions for getting started. It contains specially designed help pages that provide a quick overview in the form of task-based topics. The help pages are short and provide crisp information. So, whether you’re a novice or an expert user of Clarity 3D Workbench, task assistant will help you get the work done faster. Here’s a list of typical “getting started” questions for which you can find answers via the task assistant:
Task assistant provides a number of benefits. A few of them are listed below.
The help content is specific to the task being performed. Task assistant displays the help topic and extensively describes it.
The help pages are compact and provide succinct information.
Task assistant allows you to easily switch to Cadence Help and back, thus enabling you to access the detailed help content related to a feature in just a click.
Task assistant also allows quick access to knowledge collaterals such as What’s New and the complete documentation library.
To access task assistant in Clarity 3D Workbench, click the Help button on the Set up Computer Resources form.
