Migrating existing content to a new tool takes time. ClickHelp makes this easier with import from Microsoft Word, HTML, CHM and other formats.
Just create output files in your current tool - MadCap Flare, Help & Manual, Doc-to-Help, RoboHelp or any other tool with Microsoft Word, HTML or CHM support. When the documentation is ready, host it online in your ClickHelp portal, generate Web Help to host on your own server or publish to other formats to export it.

Microsoft Compiled HTML Help
HTML5, XHTML or Web Help
OpenXML, Microsoft Word

Advanced Customization


ClickHelp comes with 20+ out of the box integrations, including Google Translate, Google Analytics, Zendesk, Salesforce, Azure AD, LiveChat, Disqus and many more. You can also add your own integrations: JavaScript libraries and custom elements which can be embedded into ClickHelp topics, external applications working with ClickHelp API and custom SSO providers. For example, your topics may contain videos, surveys, quizzes, "Contact Us" forms and chat bots, etc.

ClickHelp API

The REST API allows automating various actions and opens capabilities for even more integrations. For example, you can add the search feature to your Contact Support form to make your customers see automatically suggested search results from ClickHelp before they submit a case, thus making your customers get the information they need right away and decreasing your support team workload. One other example of API usage is Zendesk integration, where ClickHelp search results are used to improve support agents' productivity.

Single Sign-On

The Single Sign-On feature allows establishing integrations with your own authentication system, so your users access documentation hosted in ClickHelp through custom login pages which you provide. ClickHelp supports the OpenID Connect technology and offers special support for popular SSO providers like Google, Microsoft Azure AD, and Salesforce. If you are willing to use this approach but are not ready to implement SSO support on your side, you can also consider alternative approaches, like login tokens.

Custom Scripts

You can customize the behavior of your portal and even extend its functionality with the help of third-party JavaScript libraries and your own custom code. You can implement things like custom navigation elements, automatic redirection logic based on custom parameters or integrations with third-party systems and so on.
