API - Join events and alerts information
Hey there!I am trying to combine information from knowledge alerts and the events (a.k.a analytics) endpoint, however, I am unsure how to do this. So far, my best attempt has been joining both information using the field card_id (both knowledge_alerts and events provide it) and filtering the events with type = ‘alert-read’. However, this is not ideal since a given card_id could be related to > 1 knowledge alert, so my question is… Is there any way to know which event is related to which knowledge_alert? It would be nice to have an `alert_id` field under the events endpoint.Thank you in advance!Iñigo

No email notifications when clicking on "reply" button in comments
When we add a comment - we get our emails using @mentions.However, if we are viewing comments in a card and click on the reply button and send a reply - no email notifications are sent.This requires that we start a new comment which makes it difficult to follow the stream on a particular comment.How can we get emails when the “reply” button is used?Thanks for helpTwila

I have 20 plus Saas tools and a sales person gets assigned at least eight of them on their first day. Keeping all of that knowledge straight is a lot to process when you join. Guru is a great way to sort of take that pressure off of you don't need to learn everything right away, but it's here when you're ready.” She’ll cover her approach to:Structuring the Sales Techstack informat

How do marketing teams use Guru? 💡
Need some ideas for how marketers can maximize their use of Guru? We've got you covered! In our recent Deep Dive, we split into breakout rooms to discuss how different teams use Guru. Staying competitive with up-to-date knowledgeRenata Lapetina, Content Marketing lead at Pipefy, will share how she’s used Guru to enable her broader, multi-lingual Pipefy team around marketing content. “When we started using Guru at Pipefy, our first goal was to have our marketing assets live in Guru to support sales enablement. We have a very organized and mature content creation process, and I created a connection between that process and Guru to automate documentation. We don’t have to create a Guru card for every new asset, which helps because we have a lot of new things every month. Inside Pipeify, I created an automation with Zapier so every time we have a new asset, we have a new Guru Card for that asset.” She covered her marketing team’s approach to:Documenting marketing team processes Automatical
Do you create separate cards for mobile app vs. web app workflows?
Hi folks 👋Looking to get some insight into how people generate Guru content when the same workflow can be performed through multiple platforms (i.e. mobile apps vs the website). Wondering if people generate two cards (one for each workflow) or anchor the card on the workflow and then present the two ways of doing it (i.e. on the mobile app at the top of the card and then the website workflow underneath) on the same card. In my mind it’s six of twelve and half dozen of the other but I am leaning toward the second option as it’d increase discoverability.Thanks, folks!
Reducing Customer Support hold times with Guru
Hope that this finds you all well. We are a product manufacturer of clean energy solutions (solar+storage) and sell to distributors and installers. We have a challenge to reduce our Technical Support hold times for installer who call in to ask a question or troubleshoot their system. I was looking for specific case studies or best practices about using Guru to surface knowledge quickly to chip away at these hold times. Trying to build a case for further adoption of Guru along these lines. Thanks in advance for your time with this.
Hi. Is there a way to route cards to a specific section automatically? I create daily meeting notes and want them to go to the respective section on a board without moving them manually. For example, I categorize these notes by the month, so I have a section on a board that has the month. I hope that makes sense. Thank you!
Automatic creation of competitor intelligence cards
Hi! I have a goal to automate creation of cards that include info about our competitors so we don't need a human author. We explored some softwares such as Crayon and Klue who can do that, but it's quite expensive and I want house the info on Guru. Caroline from Guru suggested using 1. Guru knowledge clipper or 2. Zapier integration to trigger card creation based on a certain action Curious to know how other users add competitor intelligence cards to their collection without having to manually scrape the internet for info about their competitors! Thanks all!
Is it possible to embed the "ask expert" feature?
Hi, alongside Guru we’re also using a LMS. We’d like to collect feedback on the courses and allow ppl to ask additional questions. Is there any way to embed the “Ask expert” form into another page similarly as we can embed cards? Alternatively is it possible to somehow allow for the comments section to show up on the embedded cards?We could use Google Forms instead but we’d prefer to keep all requests for knowledge in Guru whenever possible.Thank you,Tereza.
Top Tips on Structuring Permissions and Groups
Hi y’all!I’ve been thinking about all the different ways folks go about permissioning content in Guru and wanted to share some best practices with the class : ). For a quick little recap on how permissions functions within Guru, only Admins on your team can assign user roles which determine a user’s permissions. While the Read Only role (true to its name) does not allow a user to create or verify content but does allow them to view content, both Authors and Collection Owners can create, verify, edit, and manage your Guru content. This Help Center article expands on user roles beautifully.Once permissions have been granted, it’s time to think about which groups to create in order to best serve your team and its goals. For example, say you would like to have Author access in all Collections. An easy way to accomplish this would be to create a group called “All Access” and add it to every Collection as a verifier (ie. Author or Collection Owner). We in Guru create groups based on our var

Creating Hundreds of Links between Cards in 5 Minutes
Just wanted to share something I learned this week (which is very useful for a noob like myself).I’d always been curious if I would be able to bulk-link hundreds of cards to each other based on keywords, and the answer is yes. A use case for this could be that every time the phrase "sales playbook" appears in your knowledge base, Guru will create a card link to the specific card of your choosing with more information about the "sales playbook".Doing this manually is tedious, but the short method is below.Using the find and replace Guru sheet and a quick card export, I was able to create hundreds of Guru links to other existing cards from targeted keywords in about 5 minutes using the following steps:1. Read the instructions on the find and replace sheet and run an export of the relevant collection or boards from the card manager2. Make a copy of this google sheet, and using the information from your export, copy any keywords you want to target, and their corresponding card ID’s and Car
Best Practices around using Guru as a Wiki
We are in the implementation stage with our Guru platform and going to launch in early April.Looking for best practices around the "Wiki" part of our launch and engaging our team to get all their knowledge into Guru. We are planning to launch with a base foundation of knowledge 10-20% or so with clear guides and templates on how to add content. Then planning to have a call to action for the 50 paid seats to help build out this resource. Any best practice on how we can leverage the wiki part of Guru to get all the amazing knowledge out of peoples brains and into Guru? Thank you.RM
Send knowledge alerts for cards in a synced collection?
We have a few collections that are synced from Confluence. Is it possible to send KA’s on those? I don’t see the option on the card but wasn’t sure if there was a setting I had to enable somewhere. We’ve had success with getting buy-in for Guru by allowing folks to sync their Confluence space first so being able to use all the features might help with adoption.
Historical views by day or week for a specific card?
I’m trying to see how many views a card got per day since it was created. Is there a way to do that? I don’t need the “last 30” or “since edited” - I’m looking for a per day (or even week) of views a card received. Is there something I can export that would have it?
Public Sharing - Embedded PDFs only show first page on mobile
We are sharing cards with public links that have multi-page PDFs embedded in the card. However, on mobile, only the first page of the PDF is visible.There is no way to scroll to the the other pages Editing the card to make the iframe big enough to see all the pages does not work - only the first page is visibleAny one figure out a workaround for this? Or @Guru do you have this as a bug to fix?
