ABOUT THE ARTICLES MODULE
*Note: A single Article will be referred to as a Post.
The Articles module manages Posts, which are long-form text documents that authors can publish and share publicly or to specific groups of users such as employees, customers partners, support agents and even website visitors. The built in post management and classification features allow authors to create a wide array of text documents to suit the specific needs of their organization.
The Articles Module can be used to host multiple types of knowledge bases or FAQs. Users can easily search for specific information related to know-how, commonly asked questions, concerns, etc. For example, a technical knowledge base can provide customers with quick access to self serve support, or an HR department may post employee benefits information that addresses common inquiries. The Articles Module can also be configured to streamline employee on-boarding and support sales enablement.
Using the Articles Module, a variety of blog styles that are accessible to a particular community of users can be created. Everything from a company blog featuring updates, initiatives, and expert opinions to an internal or micro blog authored by experts within the company can be configured to share information and perspective.
The Articles Module can facilitate announcements to all levels of a company. Communications can be shared with a team, department or even across the whole company. Project briefings, new hire welcomes, new product debuts and any other announcement types you might have can be easily pushed to the appropriate audience.
