Help on context-sensitive help

Hello there! My company is considering switching over to Confluence and their #1 requirement is that we still offer context-sensitive help. We would be going with the server option (not cloud), and most of our customers do not have Internet access in the labs to access help remotely. Currently we go out and install our software and then pull in a distributed version of our help that automatically maps to topisc with topic IDs (from MadCap Flare). How is/can this performed in Confluence?

I hope that helps, but do let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Shannon
