You want your knowledge base to be chock full of high-quality information that your tech support analysts and your customers can use. But ensuring sure the KB is current and readable is a monumental task. To manage this task, you've created KB article templates, which should make writing articles easier. However, many templates aren't user-centric or specific enough. If your KB article template has headings like "Introduction," "Notes," or "Resources," it's not going to help you get good articles from analysts and SMEs. A generic template isn't much better than no template at all.
In this session, you will learn how to use customers' and support analysts' questions to develop a worthwhile, reusable KB article template that will produce better articles and make them easier to update. You'll learn how to gather a set of user questions and how to make room for future, as-yet-unknown questions. You'll also learn why using customer questions is a proven tool when the KB needs people to become article writers who haven't been writers in the past.
