Managing knowledge bases

A knowledge base contains your support content. It can either be used to show the content to your customers as a public facing website or to provide internal content for your staff.

Manage knowledge base configuration

Add and update knowledge bases in the admin area.

From the top right of the navigation bar, click the cog icon.

Click on Knowledge Bases.
