Product Documentation and Knowledgebase

Almaden has launched a dedicated product documentation and knowledgebase site at This new site will enable our customers and partners to quickly and easily search for topics, and review documents and articles.

Documentation is segmented by product and you can quickly jump to a Product, or Topic within a product, by clicking on the heading.

At the moment we have product documentation for SmartCenter™ and Collective IQ®. This will be added to and enhanced with FAQ’s and instructional videos over time.

Multi-lingual documentation

The Product Documentation site is currently available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Simplified Chinese. The site should auto-select the language, based on your browser settings. If however, you want to manually change to a different language you can do this by using the drop-down language switcher in the menu. Almaden Product Documentation Site -


Articles and documentation are fully searchable.

Searches are completed in the language you are currently using, so if you are looking at the documentation in English you need to use English search terms. If you are viewing the documentation in Portuguese then you need to carry out your search in Portuguese.


There are multiple navigation options available to you, in addition to Search.

  • By Topic: You can navigate the documentation site using the, collapsable, topic and sub-topic navigation on the left-hand side of the screen. Simply click on the topic to select it and jump to the document.
  • Sub-Topic: If there is a downward-facing arrow to the right of a topic you can click on the arrow to expand to the sub-topics. Again you can click on the sub-topic to quickly select that item for reading.
  • Breadcrumbs: Just below the Search Bar breadcrumbs are displayed to show you where you are in the overall document hierarchy. You can use the breadcrumbs to navigate back along your trail, by clicking on the item.
