Knowledge Base

This forum pertains to our knowledge base feature, which includes articles on your web portal. Please see our other forums on the right sidebar for feedback pertaining to other areas of our product.

When writing your suggestion, please be sure to include:

  • any relevant details about your business case for your suggestion
  • the obstacles you suggestion would help you overcome to gain the most value from UserVoice.

How can we improve our Knowledge Base so your customers can find what they need and you can focus on actionable product feedback?

  1. Provide admin bulk editing for Knowledge Base articles

    It would be a huge time saver if you had bulk editing functions for KB articles. Being able to select several or all articles and change sections, published/unpublished status, and delete would be phenomenal. It would also reduce your support requests to have this done by a dev!

    • Add a filter for shared ideas in my feedback

      It would be useful for users to have a easy tool (filter) to find recently submitted ideas. There are a fair few users that vote on ideas, comment on ideas and suggest ideas and I feel like it would be useful to be able to choose an option from a filter in the my feedback page to be able to filter only submissions excluding all the votes and comments that the user has made.

          • Multi-lang support for articles

            Anyone who provides a service to multi-languages needs to have a multi-language Knowledge Base. By allowing each article to have multiple translations, users would be able to read through the knowledge base in their respective language.

            Today UserVoice offers the ability to have a KB in a plenty of languages – but you can only choose ONE language.

            If you have a multi-language website, vote on this.

            • Be able to create multiple Knowledge Bases on the same account

              Sometimes customers are supporting multiple products. Having all the articles in the same Knowledge Base can be confusing and even overwhelming for users who are only using say 1 product.

              Ideally, admins would be able to create multiple Knowledge Bases (similar to what you can do with Forums).

              Along with that would be allowing admins to restrict a widget to a single Knowledge Base which you can also do with Forums.

                  • Add keywords to articles to improve search results

                    It would be nice to add keywords to the knowledge base articles so that customer searches could return more relevant articles.

                    I have started to put keywords at the bottom of our knowledge base articles and it improves searchability greatly but it would be better if they were hidden from the customer.

                    • Attach files to Knowledge Base Articles

                      We currently have all of our documentation in the form of PDFs. It would be a huge PLUS if we could attach files (other than CSVs) to Knowledge Base articles.

                        Hey there! We recently added the functionality to embed PDFs, images, videos, and just about whatever else you need. You can read all about it here: http://goo.gl/20U3H

                      • Allow admins to preview unpublished articles on the Web Portal

                        Allow logged in admins to see unpublished articles via the public portal.

                        We have a team who create articles and others who proof read and approve articles. The second group of people want to see the article as it will appear when public.

                        It would be great to be able to give them the article URL - or a different URL if you like - which will show the article is it would be if published through the public portal whilst the article is still unpublished.

                        If it's just the normal article URL: what happens now when you visit an…

                            I'd like to be able to add content to the topic page. That way we can use the topic hub as a jumping off page to all the content for that topic.

                                    For accessibility, admins need to be able to add "alt" text to images. While they can do this via HTML, adding a way to do this easily when first adding the image would be ideal.
