Ok,Finally found some time to work on the Help files.
Which toolbars need updating in your opinion? I think all of them are OK now, expect the one on the home screen.
Working on the content of the Home screen now. Also, the User Access Level needs to change now. Guess with Hoffi's changes we are somewhere between old-style Eventlist access control and full Joomla ACL now...?

My changes are related to read access only. With it JEM fully supports Joomla's access level mechanism. ACL instead is in my eyes more for modifying access rights. For that we have the JEM groups.
(Of course, in detail there are cross-effects. So a super user is allowed to modify all but if he is not attached to relevant access level he can't see e.g. events in frontend he is allowed to modify - so he can't modify in frontend.)
Says the help anything about menu items? Yes, there is (/should be) a description text for each param which pops-up on mouseover. But maybe some general words could be helpful?
Hmm.. ok. Trying to understand the new access levels....
I will read the topics here and then try to reproduce what I've learned (to double-check)
About the views:
They are not included in the Help screens, but they do have tot pop-ups on mouseover. I think it would be very helpful to add / modyfy / clarify those texts as much as possible.
Some general words could be good, but the Help icon in the Views refer to standard Joomla help. So maybe we could use a descriptive text above the view but I would certainly want to keep that for JEM 2.x
It's not essential for now. Essential is to get a first release out.
