Knowledge Base

The phrase "scientia potentia est" or "Knowledge is Power" has echoed throughout time as the touchstone of good sense. All good help desk software solutions should have a Knowledge Base, and KBs are only as good as the information you put into them.

However, having one that works for you? We've taken care of that. NetHelpDesk's Knowledge Base allows full rich-text formatting of entries, and allows you to paste an entry straight from a ticket for ease of article submission. It also serves your end-user self-service portal as well.

This example shows an end user knowledge base entries for self service, to help the end user resolve the call for themselves, prior to submitting the ticket to you. You control what entries are made public, all in rich text formatting:

Once a tried and tested way has been found to resolve an issue, record a summary of the issue, full details of what happened, scenarios and how it affected those involved. Then record detailed steps for resolution.

  Full Word Indexing, to search title and contents.  
  Rich Text formatting for Full Details and Resolution Screens.  
  Record who created the entry, and when for quality controls and audit.  
  Set Review Date for the future, capture who last amended entry, and when.  
  Link Knowledge Base entries together, for issues with several stages.  
  Add the ticket number that lead to KB article being created, and view from the entry.  
  Link static attachments to article, that will never change.  
  Link floating documents to the article, that are updated elsewhere on a regular basis.  
  Assign an Asset Type to the KB Article for Reference.  
  Print the article straight away to your local printer.  
  Access the KB from Main Ticket View, New Ticket, Existing Ticket Details, and Action screens.  
  Create a KB article straight from the closed ticket.  
  All KB articles are set to PRIVATE on creation.  
  Choose which articles to publish to end-users via the Web Portal for Self Service.  
  Set the number of letters you want NetHelpDesk to use for word indexing for Self Service.  
  NetHelpDesk suggests to end user the answer before they submit the call to your teams.  

This passing of information around your team can be done quickly, and allows them to share their experience and skills with other members.

Private and Public Articles
Everything you publish to your NHD KB is automatically set to private, so that it for your team's eyes only. You can organise entries into FAQ lists as well.

You can then select what information is published to the web portal for your end-users to see, and allow them to self-diagnose and resolve as you want them to. You remain in full control of what they have access to.

Access the KB from Anywhere
The knowledge base is available throughout NetHelpDesk, to make it easy for a support person to add new and look up existing entries. The structure of the KB is based on simple, full text indexing of the entire knowledge base entry, not just on keywords.

Link Relevant Information
Links to fixed documents in the entry, external documents on your network or SharePoint, and web site articles can be added to the knowledge base quickly.

Review Procedures
Each entry is assigned a review date (based on a user defined interval), that allows the information to be reviewed an if necessary amended periodically.

Our product has developed over many years based on Customer feedback, so if there is another way you feel would help you in this area, feel free to speak with us about your ideas. We can usually add in new features quickly, and usually free of charge.

Just contact our team to discuss your requirements. If there are any features you would like to see added to our help desk software, just let us know. See our #ChallengeNHD Twitter campaign for more information.
