Using Bookmarks touchpoints
Touchpoints allow relevant information to be shared seamlessly between Bookmarks and the People + Services topic. Example: You could define access information for services such as your electric utility account directly in People + Services. Via the touchpoint to that topic, the information is also accessible from Bookmarks. Or, you could define the billing and payment website for your ISP account directly in Bookmarks and, via the touchpoint to that topic, the information is also accessible from People + Services.
How do I use Bookmarks?
These sections are available in the Bookmarks topic view:
