Hi,

Need a suggestion here.
We have help pages with mapIDs defined and they are launched as context-sensitive help pages on the web application on the respective web pages.

So as always has been, the page is associated with the mapID.

With Angular and HTML5 that the UI development team is now using, many operation happen on the same web page. So the page/URL stays the same but the content or tasks the users does on the page can change drastically. We have multiple tabs on the same page and each tab has some actions.

So the mapID that calls a specific context-sensitive help page may not not show relevant content if the user is on a different tab, although the page/URL is the same and the page that is called is correct.

Any idea how to handle this?

It sounds like your devs would need to code a different call to the relevant help page depending on what tab you are currently in to get that working. Right now it sounds like the app page is using the same call no matter where on that app page you are.
