Share Articles with Users & Roles

UseResponse allows you to share FAQs / articles with anyone and control whether users can view or edit the article.

There are several use cases when it can be used:

  • You've written private article and want to provide access to some limit number of customers using sharing link;
  • Article would need revision of some users to update it without "Manage Knowledge Base" permission;
  • In internal knowledge base you would like to share it with group of users only;
  • Article should be updated with new versions by specific users.

Only administrators and agents with "Manage Knowledge Base" permission can use share option.

How to Share Articles / FAQs?

In order to share article to some users or group of users, you would need to go to article page in agents interface and click on either pin icon in share section to get sharing link or use "Advanced" link to get more options.

Note: Edit permissions will be available once Version Control is enabled in Administration » System » Knowledge Base.
