Knowledge Base


The Knowledge Base is a feature that facilitates the process of creating and publishing articles to allow end users (customers, vendors, partners, any users) to search these articles for answers to questions and issues. Providing an information source that end users can use self-sufficiently reduces the effort needed to support end users. The Knowledge Base also provides a means of documenting and proliferating information to minimize the time needed to resolve an issue.

A Knowledge Base license key is required to use this feature. Enter your license key in the corresponding tab of the Tracker License Manager.
