The help assistant says "bye-bye" - With new insights, the journey to improvement continues!

Since May, we have been testing the help assistant together with you. After intensive testing and collecting feedback, we have decided to stop using it from 21.09.2023.

The light bulb icon with step-by-step instructions and news will no longer be available to you from that date.

Our goal is always to provide you with the best user experience possible. During our testing, we have evaluated how you, as our users, use the help asssistant, checked our use cases and closely monitored how the usability works for you and us. Unfortunately, the Help Assistant did not deliver the quality and functionality that we hoped for and that met our needs.

But don't worry! Based on the knowledge we have gained, we are still working on solutions to be able to offer you even better support in the future. We will keep you informed of any further developments.

The help portal and our customer service will of course remain available to you.

Your feedback is very important to us. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please write to our UX team

Best regards and thank you for your patience and support!

Step-by-step guides and news directly in d.vinci

Explanation of term

We are currently evaluating if we can support you in the future directly in d.vinci with a help assistant.  

As of 04.05.2023, our help assistant is designed to help you work with and navigate through d.vinci faster and more efficiently. It will guide you step-by-step through the features directly in d.vinci if needed, showing you tips and tricks, new features and announcements. 

With this assistant, you can solve your challenges right where they arise without help from colleagues or our Customer Service. We hope it feels a bit like our Customer Service colleagues are standing next to you, guiding you through the software or advising you on what to consider when configuring it.

Your benefits by the Help Assistant

  • The assistant guides you step-by-step through what you need to do in d.vinci.
    Even complex tasks are simplified in this way.
    Contents could be: Set up Google for Jobs, create job postings, connect job boards via interface, maintain master data, create applications, use hiring requests, why can't I see an application?
  • We show you where you can find new features.
    We will guide you through setting up the new feature from start to finish if needed. 
  • You will find around-the-clock assistance and won't have to leave the system.
  • You can also give us perspective feedback on how the tutorial or feature is for you.

Help us to help you

By using the Help Assistant and providing feedback, you can make a significant contribution to improving your user experience.

Please use the Help Assistant before contacting our Customer Service. Maybe the step-by-step instructions can already help directly. First of all, you will find content on frequently asked topics.

We will look at how you use the assistent over the next few months and ask you for feedback at various points if necessary.

If we find that you don't get any added value from the new feature, we will disable it again. 

However, we are convinced that the Help Assistant can be a valuable addition to our customer service and look forward to hearing your opinions.


By default, the Help Assistant is enabled on your d.vinci system. We can turn it off if you don't want to use it. However, we recommend it, as we may remove instructions from the help portal in the future.
If you are not interested in using it, please email us at

Privacy and Information Security 

Before we bring new partners on board, we subject them to a thorough review of all aspects of data protection and information security. For us, the DSGVO and ISO 27001 are essential. We only enter into this partnership if we have no concerns with regard to data protection and information security.

You and your privacy and information security officers should be able to work with d.vinci at any time without hesitation. We do not want to make more work for you than you already have by adding additional checks. However, we always recommend involving your privacy officer with any feature you enable.
