Meet the new Help Portal

We’re excited to introduce our new Help Portal. We put all of our help content in one website to make it easy for you to find the resources that you need.

Help Portal home page

Open the Help Portal in your browser—without signing in

When you open the Help Portal (http://portal.paladinpos.com) in your browser, you can get to any content type from the quick-access menu.

Open the Help Portal from Paladin Point of Sale

The Help menu in Paladin Point of Sale also takes you to the new Help Portal.  For example, when you click Knowledge Base, the Knowledge Base page will open in a separate browser window, and you can search all Knowledge Base articles (KBAs).

Getting to the Help Portal from Paladin Point of Sale

When help content opens in a separate browser window, it gives you a much better experience than viewing it within Paladin Point of Sale. Here are a few reasons why:

  • You can read the instructions in the KBA while you perform the steps in Paladin Point of Sale. Two monitors are ideal for this although you can switch between Paladin Point of Sale and the browser window.
    Using two monitors
  • You can save pages as favorites or bookmarks.
  • You can search across all four content types:
    • Knowledge Base
    • Webinars
    • Videos
    • New Features

Search everything or just one thing

In the Help Portal, you can search broadly across all help content or narrow it down to one content type.

To search all help content, use the search bar on the home page of the Help Portal or click the magnifying glass at the top of any page.
Search all help content in two ways

To narrow your search to a specific content type, search from the content page.

Example:  To search for only Knowledge Base articles, click Knowledge Base in the menu, and then use the search bar on that page.

Tip: When in doubt, click About

KBA titles that start with About show you all the topics for a particular subject. If you don’t know exactly which article that you want, but you know the subject, an About article might help.

A link to a list of About articles — About: When in doubt, click about — is always available on the Knowledge Base page.

Form to create a case

If you’ve created cases before, the process will be familiar with a few improvements:

  • You can choose an existing contact, or you can add yourself or someone else as a new contact.
  • You can specify any contact email address and phone number to use for the case, so we can contact the right person with questions and follow-up.
  • You will receive a confirmation email that your case was received, and we will communicate with you about your case by email – including requests for more information and steps to resolve your case. This new process lets you to answer questions and read messages when it is convenient for you. To ensure your case is resolved quickly and efficiently, check your email frequently for messages from us. You may still be contacted by phone, if needed.
  • You no longer need to close old open cases that are no longer valid. If we haven’t heard back from you about a case within seven days of our last email or phone message, we will close the case automatically. You can always re-open a case.
