In the top right corner of your EventSprout Dashboard, there is a button that says "Turn Helpers Off" or "Turn Helpers On" (depending if the feature is in use). By turning the helpers on, event organizers can view tooltips that explain the page's features. By default, helpers are on to guide you through the page and utilize EventSprout to the fullest. Simply hover over a button to learn more about it's function.
Once you get the hang of using EventSprout, you are welcome to turn off the tooltips by clicking "Turn Helpers Off".
