Ask and answer questions about Guru
Hey all! My IT team is considering joining my rollout of Guru to streamline our new hire onboarding experience. We have Okta, JIRA, Confluence and random Slide decks, so my idea is to use Guru, JIRA, Okta and possibly a synced Confluence collection (until I can convince them to move off Confluence entirely so the full company uses Guru). They love Slack's use case that mentions Guru so if any customers or current Guru employees have best practices or can chat live with us, we'd love to know the extent of Guru's API. Thanks! :blush:
Hey folks, I've seen this question asked here a couple of times and I also asked early on in our Guru implementation. Is there a way for users to suspend verification requests whenever they update cards? To my knowledge, there's currently no way to do this. I often need to make small changes to cards and I don't want to bother the verifier with what might be a simple formatting update or sentence rewrite. To get around this, you can use the API to impersonate those users and verify articles on their behalf. Assuming you're an admin (and your org is cool with you editing the content of others), you just generate a token for the verifier of the card and then post the card content using the token. This is only worth setting up if you make a lot of small changes to other users' cards, but just figured I'd mention here in case others had similar questions.
Hi! I noticed in this blog post an awesome brand story Card that nicely displays Guru's hex color codes. Is that a markdown element? Curious if Guru can share how that was made? Thanks https://blog.getguru.com/how-guru-uses-brand-guidelines-to-empower-our-revenue-team
Happy tips and tricks Thursday!! :star2: Has your team considered using Guru for professional development? Here at Guru, our People Ops team uses Guru *to advertise professional development opportunities and include summaries/relevant links after the session in Guru Cards*. Here's a recent example, where we had an excellent training about developing a growth mindset :brain:: Does your team use Guru for professional development? If not, are there ways you could expand Guru to be used in this way? Let us know down below!! :arrow_down:
:brain: *Template Spotlight:* Product Feature Support Troubleshooting:notebook: By @bwayne, Program Lead - Communications at Freshbooks :leaves: > "When a product doesn't work the way it's supposed to, we want to ensure our agents have the information readily available to troubleshoot and solve the customer's issue effectively. This template keeps all the details in one central place, in case the issues overlap, and the anchored links helps our agents jump to the right spot on a card quickly. No problem is too intimidating when all this information is laid out clearly for our agents like this template." -Brooke Wayne *Check out and copy the template here. Have questions about the template, or your own examples of using Guru for competitive intel? Snap a screenshot and share in the thread so we can all learn and grow together!*
Hey all - Happy Thursday! Here at Guru, we're experimenting with using a Card to communicate how to ensure our Slack communication is as efficient and effective as possible. In this new normal of remote work, it can be challenging to manage Slacks zipping to and fro/in all directions. (AKA How can we go from :explodinghead: to :maninlotusposition:...) One interesting idea we're testing out is a set of custom emoji's that clarifies the urgency of a Slack message, whether it's a high priority ASAP need, just an FYI with no action needed, or somewhere in between with a response needed in 1 or 3 days. Check out this blog post, posted today, for more on this and other ways we're working to improve Slack with Guru. As always, thread your realted ideas and suggestions here for the benefit of all! :handshake::heart::rocket: Have a great rest of the week!
Hello Guru! Is it possible to auto-create a Guru card (using a Guru template) when something changes on a Salesforce record? I'm curious if there is a way to automate a "new merchant onboarding" Guru card after an Opportunity field in Salesforce is updated to closed won. Appreciate any insights!
Is anyone here using the Ticket Linking feature (for Zendesk), and can you share any wins or challenges you've had? We just completed a test run with a small group of our Japanese language agents, and I'm gathering data and feedback to see if we want to roll this out team-wide. Would love to hear others' experiences (both as an admin or manager, or an agent!) so I know what to look out for and any cool things you've done with the data!
Is there a way to see how often the "Z" button was clicked to copy an article link when someone has searched in the sidebar? They don't have to view the card to copy the link and I'm trying to determine engagement with that. Users will not necessarily filter for the collection so I can't count on that option in the analytics.
For folk who didn't catch last week's Guru Deep Dives, we heard from a few different Collection Champs at Guru about how they organize their department's Collections. Check out this clip where Emily Nguyen walks through the Marketing Collection: https://getguru.wistia.com/medias/hn10ks6tom
:wave: hey everyone, happy Friday. Quick question for those using Slack Reacj channeler. I'm trying to find a good workaround for the limitation on using the same emoji for different channels/purposes. I'm assuming most people are creating a different emoji for each purpose , is this the case or do you have any other suggestions? I really like the Guru brain emoji, and I wish I could keep using that consistently across the different channels.
:wave: Hey Guru Sales friends! Does anyone have any *recommendations for vendors that do first-time/new manager training*? I want them to have a safe (virtual) space to practice the basics and learn from/connect with others outside of our org. I'm thinking of AMA off the top of my head, but would love recommendations.
Hi all, what tools are teams using for innovation management, ideation etc? Any that play nice with Guru and are well suited to an SME business? Would really like it to handle capture and rating of ideas with the least friction possible, perhaps also measure / assess the value of them, but doesn't necessarily have to facilitate the project management aspect of seeing the development of an idea through to completion.
Hi everyone :slightlysmilingface:, I hope y'all are having a great week so far. Our team is considering migrating part of their support operations to Discord (from Slack). I've been able to implement a Discord bot integration to handle searching guru cards, but I cannot find any functionality in the API that lets me listen to when *new cards* get created, or when *knowledge alerts* get sent out. Is there no way to do this using the current API? Our goal is to retain the most important functionality for us from the slack integration (namely searching and linking cards, setting up a new card feed and getting verify/knowledge alerts) when moving over to Discord. Is there any work around that I could use? Thanks in advance!
Happy :fallenleaf: Autumnal Equinox :fallenleaf: - Time to give gratitude and start fresh! In the spirit of fresh starts, why not start that custom sync project you have been wanting to do :eyes:? Jon Peck from GitHub recently shared with us how he built a *reusable migration tool from their Sales Enablement team's GitHub repository into Guru*. His initial MVP took *~2 days* and he also posted his Github to Guru action for the Guru Community to use! Since building this sync, Guru has given his team a single place where they can store and maintain all reference material relevant to their sales process. Learn more about Jon's project here. Do you have any external content sources that you want to sync into Guru but are not currently available via the Knowledge Sync feature? Are there any roadblocks in using Guru's API to build that sync for you and your team? Feel free to share in the thread!
Hey folks, we're trying to leverage the API to pull all cards in our knowledge base as we're building a find&replace MVP. We're using the search endpoint with a blank query to list all cards but it appears to be timing out. It stops printing at 8952 cards and that figure doesn't appear to bear any significance. Would you be able to shed any light on why that might be the case? I'll thread the code for reference.
Is there an option to have the API response Paging link as an element within the Body of the response, rather than within its header? I cannot access the response header from within Power BI (or more specifically, from within Power Query), so quite a lot of the APIs capabilities are unusable to me.
