What's New in the Help Center

Welcome to the new ExamSoft Help Center! 


Here is a list of what’s new:


Search Functionality

  1. Instant Help Center search

    • As you populate the search box with your query,  you will see article titles that match the content under the search box with links to each article.

      • Note: Native Search uses full word search and includes the titles, body of the text, and labels in the search results.



  1. To refine your search results, place quotations around the search terms.



3. Refine your search results using categories

    1. Click the Articles link under Type on the left-side of the screen.
    2. You will see the results grouped by the Exam-Maker and Exam-Taker Categories.
