The Chameleon HelpBar allows you to search and navigate between Chameleon resources, features, and pages to switch between guidance and product components effortlessly.

Integrated into your workflow, the HelpBar will save you time and boost your Experience building flow with all configurations you need, at hand.

Availability & Usage

🔐 Available for all plans

⚙️ Launch it from the Dashboard, Builder, or with CMD+K / CTRL+K

📺 Watch the video below to see how the HelpBar works in Chameleon 👇

The HelpBar is a built-in "Spotlight search" engine that connects all Chameleon Help doc, best practices, Developer docs, Experiences, and more. It’s our solution for quick navigation without interrupting your flow.

You can use the HelpBar to search for, and access:

  • Dashboard pages

  • Chameleon Experiences

  • Segments, custom CSS codes, data Imports

  • Help articles & Developer docs

  • Blog content

  • Available Integrations

  • Experience Alerts

Open it with CMD+K (on Mac) or CTRL+K (on Windows) anywhere in Chameleon: the Dashboard, while using the Builder in your app, or open it from the top of the Dashboard menu. You can search for Experiences on your account, a Segment you created, or a Help article to guide you through the configurations underway.

Type in a word, and the HelpBar will pull up all available resources in Chameleon. You can use simple words, and Chameleon will list all connected resources available. You can navigate the results with the keyboard shortcuts. Chameleon Experiences, Dashboard configurations, or account-wide options will always have priority here, followed by helpful resources.

To stay on top of Experience-building in Chameleon, you can use

  • the icons to quickly scan available resources and ensure you’re heading the right way. They signal integrated components such as Experiences, Help docs, Alerts, and so on.

  • labels that show you whenever new resources are available, or the status of Experiences.

  • the preview details to make your choice easier. For example, in the case of Help articles, you’ll see a content snippet. Or for a Segment, you’ll see the number of users included in it.

Pick from the list of results the one that fits your need, and you can navigate to it right away. If it's a Chameleon page, you'll be redirected to it. If it's an external resource, it will open in a new tab. No extra steps. 😉

The Chameleon HelpBar gathers all Chameleon components in one place, so you can find your next project in a beat. Whenever you need to check, learn, or edit something, use the HelpBar to get to it.

You’ll notice that HelpBar has two main sections: Recent and Recommended results.

Chameleon learns from your search habits and will pull up the most relevant results as you continue to use it. This way, it's integrated with your unique habits and needs.
