Answers and knowledge

So people find help when they're stuck, and can continue working — or buying from you.

Avoid repetition, save time

If a question has been asked already, others with the same problem, find the first question — no need to ask again.

Everyone gets help

List unsolved questions, so nothing gets overlooked.

Onboarding, handover

Your new members learn how things work, by reading earlier questions and answers. The knowledge stays, when someone leaves.

Crowdsource ideas

Sort by popularity.

Pick the right ideas

Discuss ideas and answers. The good replies surface to the top, so you find them, before making decisions.

Avoid mistakes

You'll see if others disagree with something — then, read the replies, to find out what the problem is.

Insight and transparency

Click a category for one of your teams or colleagues, and see what they're talking about and doing. (Except for private discussions)

Custom groups — save time

Create a user group, add members, and, in a few clicks, configure everyone's notification settings and access permissions.

Team chat

Get work done together, in team chats. Add a public support chat, for quick questions from your users.

Blog comments

Add comments to your blog, or technical documentation. And talk with your blog visitors. Read more here.

Mobile friendly

Easily navigate large discussions, also on mobile: Click to jump to the parent comment and refresh your mind. Then click Back, to continue reading.
