I have html pages that are the solutions for each help topic. With in those HTML pages I wish to add a link to open the containing book for this help topic in the TOC.

Use Case Scenario - Windows 8 Product Help File - Responsive HTML5 output created with RoboHelp 11

User Actions:

1. User searches "Add a contact"

2. User clicks and views solution for adding a contact.

3. User sees and clicks link to view similar solutions at the bottom of this help topic.

What I am trying to accomplish:

I want the user to see and click the link at the bottom of solution that says something like, VIEW SIMILAR SOLUTIONS.

Properties of this link - I want the link to open the table of contents book where the "Add a Contact" solution is listed.

Does this clarify what my intentions are?

Thank you for any assistance with this,

Anthony

Three options.

Use either See Also or Related Topics. See Snippets Item 23.

If the topics you want users to see are in the same book in the TOC, then make sure your output is set up to sync the topic shown with the TOC. That will expand the book that topic is in and users will see the other topics.
