Add IBM i service and/or API to command help

I am modifying the following RFE
so as to be clear that I am not asking for output file support to be added to certain commands. I am only asking that the documentation for certain commands be modified to suggest an IBM i Service and/or an API. I am asking that the online help for that command be modified and also the Knowledge Center with the highest priority being the online help.

Use Case:

I prompt WRKACTJOB. Perhaps right before: "Error messages for WRKACTJOB" I would see a section like:

For APIs see also
List Job (QUSLJOB) lists some or all jobs on the system.
Open List of Jobs (QGYOLJOB) generates a list of jobs on the system.
