We recommend that Help Authors and above be given full access to this object.
Helped Users require Read / View All.

Helped Users require Read / View All.

* Help Interation object / Help Vote Option (iahelp__HelpInteraction__c.iahelp__HelpVoteOption__c):Used for recording details of the Votes cast (Help Vote Options selected) by users.
Object access permissions should remain unchanged.
This field should be updated automatically where required. Add it to the standard Salesforce detail page visible when viewing an individual interaction record: Note that the Global Help Settings page / Tracking Tab now includes a link to Help Interaction records.

Used for setting the Vote (if any) that will be offered to users when viewing a given Help Topic.
Help Authors and above require read / write access. Help Administrators require read access.

* Helpable Signature object / Help Style (iahelp__HelpableSignature__c.iahelp__HelpStyle__c):
Used as part of new facilities that increase the flexibility with which Signature Elements can be displayed. The field may contain an Improved Help styling class name defining one of several known ways in which Help callouts can be displayed.

Please contact us for more information and assistance.
