Using the Knowledge Base

Keeping's Knowledge base allows you to store snippets, templates, or canned answers across your entire team.

What is the Knowledge Base?

The Keeping Knowledge Base is where you can store answers to frequently asked questions. This allows for one-click insertion into your Gmail replies.
If your team gets the same questions over and over again, the Knowledge Base can be a big time saver. As an admin, it can also help ensure that your team is responding to your customers in a common and consistent way.
Good to know: Information stored in the Knowledge Base is only accessible by your agents. It is meant to be an internal resource that your team can modify and share as needed.

Adding a New Entry

Go to your Keeping settings page, and choose "Knowledge Base" from the right menu. In the upper right corner, click "Add New FAQ".
Click "Add New FAQ" to add a new question/answer to your Knowledge Base.
Use the "Question" field to identify the snippet or question. In the "Answer", insert the text you'd like to be able to quickly insert into a Gmail response.

At this time you cannot add images or other attachments to a Knowledge Base answer.
