EcoSys Online Documentation – Designed for You to Get More Done

At Hexagon, we are passionate about your success. To help you achieve your goals with EcoSys, we offer comprehensive, easy to use documentation providing quick answers to your questions.  You will find a wide range of information in this documentation from configuration of EcoSys tools, such as spreadsheets and reports, to business processes within the EcoSys Standard Product, including project setup, budgeting, and forecasting. The online EcoSys documentation is not intended for linear use; context-specific links and search bars allow for easy navigation of content, enabling you to find what you need. Images and examples make complex topics easier to understand – you will find both in our documentation.

You will also find that as EcoSys is upgraded, the documentation changes too – whenever a new EcoSys feature or new version of the Standard Product is released, you will always find online documentation to go along with it. Better yet, this documentation can be accessed right from within EcoSys or directly from the documentation site!

Accessing the EcoSys Help from EcoSys

For each process screen in the Standard Product, you will find a collapsed Help panel on the right with hyperlinked topics related to the current screen.

To access EcoSys Help:

  • Once in EcoSys, navigate to any module to locate the collapsed Help panel on the right side of the EcoSys screen
  • Click the arrow to expand the Help panel

  • Once expanded, the Help panel will display content-specific hyperlinked Help topics
  • Click one of the topics to display the Help content, which will redirect you to the Hexagon Documentation site (which we will cover in the next section)

All EcoSys product documentation, including interactive, searchable user guides, and installation and maintenance manuals, are available on the Hexagon Documentation website. This easy to navigate online documentation is accessible from anywhere via mobile devices or computers.
