Knowledge is power!

A robust knowledge base is your #1 way to save time, deflect requests, and close tickets faster. That's why we're working to bring you a knowledge-first help center that encourages customers to help themselves before contacting you.

What's new for customers

If your service desk has a knowledge base, it's the first thing customers see when they visit. They can browse categories of articles, or search across your whole help center. 

When you group your articles into categories, customers find the help they need, even if they don't know the exact word for what they're looking for. Customers find more of your articles, and you have more free time for tricky requests.

What's new for agents

We've given agents more options to browse and manage articles in the service desk. When you visit your knowledge base, you can search and sort a list of all your articles, their views in the help center, and edit dates:

To make it easier for customers to browse for what they need, you can also group articles into categories.

Just click New category, give it a name, then click Add article to start populating the category.
