The goal of this issue is to make it very easy and obvious for users to search through our great Matomo.org resources (user guides, FAQs) directly from within the app. While keeping it very simple for us to implement.
Suggested places where people can access Matomo.org search:
At the top of our Help page, above the "About Matomo 3.10.0" block, we would:
Browser all user guidesand to
Browse all FAQs
It could look like Slack help page:
(we probably don't need the "Popular help topics" section for now)
When any term is entered in the awesome menu, the dropdown would include a new element, at the very bottom, called eg
Help resources, with a sub-item called eg.
Search KEYWORD_HERE on Matomo.org
Example suggested mockup:
In both cases, when people enter a search term, and click the button or link, a new tab would open in their browsers, and open the Matomo.org search result page. For example if you search for
custom dimension it would open: https://matomo.org/?s=custom+dimension
We don't want to include the help resources within the app because it is too much work to implement. Rather we want to do the easiest solution that will still provide great value to users when they need help.
As always, thoughts/suggestions welcome!
