Maintain a high Verification Score and improve Answers quality with auto archiving

Hey Community! Today, we released a new automated feature for all teams on Builder plans and above that will help you keep information in Guru fresh and trusted by archiving low-engagement, unverified Cards. Auto archiving runs in the background and takes the manual work out of identifying content to clean up in Guru. Archived Cards won’t appear in search results or Answers, and can be restored any time if you want to revisit, refresh, and republish them. You can keep encouraging your teams to capture and store information in Guru, with the foresight that Guru will step in to identify what Cards are going stale and archive them on your behalf. This takes away some of the manual work of verification by allowing experts to focus on verifying the most important content, instead of out-of-date Cards that aren’t being viewed. Auto archiving outdated information has the added benefit of improving the quality of Answers generated using Guru content. If you’ve been using Answers and seeing unverified Cards in the sources, you’ll see an immediate improvement after auto archive cleans out the stale info. Admins can access the auto archive feature in Card Manager. As part of this release, the layout for the Card Manager page has changed to a side navigation. This is part of our overall effort to create a consistent navigation experience inside of Guru.  We’ve implemented auto archiving with default archiving settings that reflect best practices from our most successful customers, based on our decade of experience in knowledge management (KM). Cards that will be auto archived are ones that have been unverified for 6 months or longer and have had 0 views while being unverified. We’re also giving admins control over how this feature gets implemented in your instances, so auto archive can reflect your company’s KM strategy. Admins can preview Cards that are about to be archived and remove Cards from the archive queue. If you’d like even more control, you’ll be able to adjust the criteria used to determine which Cards are auto-archived.  If auto archive isn’t right for your company, admins can choose to turn this feature off by contacting our support team. To give Collection Owners more control over this feature, auto archive is turned on at the Collection level. Collection Owners are often closest to the content stored in Guru, so they’re better able to make a call on whether specific Cards should be archived. The owner of each Collection will be able to choose the custom criteria for their auto archive, or turn off auto archive for certain Collections. As with workspace-wide auto archive, the default settings will be on by default if no change is made. Because this is a new automated feature, we recommend communicating your auto-archive settings to Collection owners who don’t have admin access so they know what to expect. If you have Cards that meet the default criteria for auto-archiving, they will be listed in the “Auto Archive” queue within Tasks and the actual archive will occur on December 10th. You have a week to adjust criteria, review the queue, and remove Cards from the queue. Every week, the process will repeat, with a new list of Cards to be archived available in Card Manager. Once your first auto archive has run, you’ll be able to filter by auto archived Cards in Card Manager and view the queue of Cards scheduled to be archived in Tasks. This will give you a chance to see content that has been automatically cleaned up versus content that’s been manually archived by your team. If anything unintentionally got included in an auto archive, you’ll be able to restore that Card to its original Collection.Learn more about auto archive in the help center.

Suggested Answers in Slack: Automatically surface trusted Guru info in Slack threads

Hello Guru Community! We have yet another exciting release for Answers today - introducing Suggested Answers in Slack!Suggested Answers gives your users the power of Answers without having to leave Slack. When enabled in a Slack channel that has the Guru app installed, Suggested Answers will proactively answer questions using Guru content via thread.The trigger for Guru to attempt to answer a question is ending a Slack message with a question mark. So once enabled for a specific channel, Slack messages containing a question mark will automatically generate an answer from Guru. Here’s how it works:Admins can add the Guru Slack app to your Slack instance, if you haven’t done so already. In the Apps and Integrations area of Guru, an admin can click the “Add a channel” button and select the public Slack channels where you’d like to enable Suggested Answers. In Slack, invite the Guru app to those channels. Bask in the gratitude of your SMEs, who will save time whenever Guru automatically answers a question for them! For the moment, only Guru cards that are shared with the “All Members” group will be used to answer questions. We’re continuing to invest in this feature so we’d love to hear what you’d like to see from Suggested Answers in Slack! Let us know in the comments below.

Now in beta: connect Dropbox and search for answers!

Hi Community! Starting today, you can participate in the open beta release of Dropbox as a connected source for Answers. Just connect your company’s Dropbox account, and users will be able to generate Answers based on the information stored in documents and folders.As a reminder, admins will be able to review all Answers that are generated by Guru, along with the sources used to generate those Answers. You’ll be able to assign any Answer to an expert to have them check it–and the sources used–to make sure everything’s accurate. Check out the help center for more information.  Here’s how it works:In the Apps and Integrations page, admins can navigate to the Sources tab and connect Dropbox using their credentials.  This step defines the universe of potential documents that can be sourced for Answers. TIP: If an admin doesn't want their personal credentials to define this set of resources, they can set up a separate Dropbox account with access permissions only to those folders they wish to use for Answers. The admin will receive an email once the Dropbox source is synced. This usually takes a few hours. When an end user asks a question using Answers, their permissions will be automatically inherited so Answers will only be able to generate a response based on documents the end user has access to within the universe of folders initially defined by the admin. FOR EXAMPLE: The admin sets up the Dropbox source to include every folder and document in the company. When a support agent asks a question, only documents from within the Support folder to which they have access will be used. Documents from the Sales and Marketing folders will not be used for that Answer because that support user doesn’t have access to those folders (even though they’re connected to Guru).   With the current set of Dropbox permissions that Guru uses to authenticate the Dropbox integration, group permissions are not carried over at this time. This means that a file or folder shared with a group would need to be shared individually with the end user prior to being used to generate an answer.  This scenario applies to both the admin creating the initial connection as well as to users who are getting Answers. FOR EXAMPLE: Carlos, Amanda, and Janelle are the members of the Marketing group in a company’s Dropbox instance. Carlos’s user name has been granted individual access to a working doc that he’s been drafting with colleagues. That doc is later shared with the Marketing group. Answers will be able to use it to generate a response for Carlos. But because Amanda and Janelle are not individually shared on the doc, Answers will not be able to source that doc to respond to Amanda and Janelle’s questions.

Introducing Prompt Management for Assist: A new way to fully customize your Assist toolbar

Hi Guru Community!I’ve got another exciting update for Assist that just launched today. Admins now have the ability to fully customize the Assist actions for authors across their Guru Workspace. With Assist prompt management, admins will be empowered to:Remove/turn off any existing default actions from the Assist menu Customize your menu to reflect only actions you want your team to be using.  For example, don’t want anyone on your team writing in a witty tone? Simply disable that action for everyone, or specific groups of people.  Add a new action for editing existing writing Give your team members actions that let them edit their knowledge more efficiently. For example, if you want all your authors to keep their knowledge content as concise as possible while sticking to your branded company tone, you could add an action to the menu called X company concise + tone adjustment with the following prompt: “Edit to be more concise, then adjust the tone to be friendly and professional.” Add a new action for creating content from scratch  For teams that are creating content with similar formats, you can create a prompt that your authors can use as a guiding outline with your approved style and tone already built in. For example, you could add a menu action called How-to article outline with the following prompt: “Create an outline for a how-to article in the voice of an HR Specialist. It should be direct, but at the same time, empathetic and friendly.” With Assist prompt management, you can ensure the company stays in compliance with your organization’s brand and best practices. Admins can access Assist prompt management by going to Settings > Guru Tools> Assist > Assist for authors.We’d love to hear examples of how you’re customizing Assist for your authors! Feel free to share below in the comments.

Inline comments are live on published Cards

Hi Community 👋 I’m back with an update that I hope will make some of your days: inline comments are now live on published Cards! We’ve seen feedback about this (with over 80 votes) shared in the Community so we’re happy to announce that now users are able to attach their comments to specific content within a Card. This feature works similarly to other apps your teams are likely using, so we hope it makes communication much easier.To leave an inline comment, highlight the text you’d like to comment on. A small pop-up menu will appear above the highlighted area. Click the pop-up to open a comment box to the right of the Card content and reveal other open comments on the Card. When leaving a comment, you can choose to tag another user or group to alert them to your comment, just like in the previous experience. Inline comments can be attached to text elements (lists, Card titles, headers, paragraphs, etc.) tables, and code blocks. With this move away from general Card comments, existing open comments have been attached to the title of the Card so they are easy to find. Resolved comments now appear in a new tab under Card history. Comments can be resolved and deleted in the same way they were in the previous comment experience. Notifications of comments and replies to comments work in the same way they used to as well.Learn more about the new commenting experience in our Help Center. We’re hard at work on bringing inline comments into drafts, stay tuned for that update later this fall!

Answers: get trusted knowledge, instantly with generative AI!

Hey Community 👋 I’m excited to share the news that Answers, the new generative AI feature that lets you ask a natural language question and get a direct answer, is in open beta for all users on Builder plans and above*! Answers is a powerful tool to get employees the company knowledge they need to do their jobs, dramatically reducing the time to find exactly the right info. Alongside Guru’s powerful search, Knowledge Triggers, and recommendations, Answers delivers trusted information, fast. The experience is like popular AI tools your team may already be using, but securely connected to your company’s trusted information in Guru and beyond. We’re starting with Google Drive, and will be adding more sources soon! Admins can quickly connect Google Drive folders on the Apps and Integrations page. Once Google Drive folders have been connected, Guru users will be able to generate Answers based on the content in those folders. Learn more about how sources for Answers work in the help center. There are three ways to get Answers:Type your question into the search bar in the web app or the extension, including a question mark.  DM the Guru Slackbot or tag @Guru in a Slack channel with the question, including a question mark. Click the Ask a Question button in the top navigation bar of the Guru web app.Answers will go to work scanning Guru and connected sources, and will come back with a response within seconds. Users will see the underlying sources used to generate an answer, so they can dig deeper and get more context if they need it. They’ll also be able to rate the answer with a thumbs up or thumbs down. If an answer is especially useful, they can copy it and save it as a Guru Card. But if the answer isn’t exactly what they need, they’ll be able to search it or ask an expert, right from the same workflow. Better yet, Answers is available right within everyone’s workflow. Users can get Answers in Slack and in the extension, so they don’t have to stop what they’re doing and open a new app to get the info they need. We’re creating transparency around Answers so you can feel confident rolling this feature out to your team. Admins can review information generated by Answers by going to Settings in the Guru web app. They’ll be able to see questions that have been submitted, the Answers that have been provided, and review questions that didn’t generate Answers. Useful Answers can be submitted to an expert for review and verification so that info will be captured in Guru where it can be reused in the future. Learn more about expert review for Answers in the help center. We’re not done building Answers! We’ll continue adding new sources for Answers, increasing the amount of control admins have when rolling out Answers, and finding new ways to make this feature even more useful. If you have ideas for Answers or want to request a new source, share your thoughts in the Product Feedback section of the Community or upvote existing recommendations! We'd love to hear how your teams are using Answers. Drop us a comment in this post and share the love! * Don’t want Answers for your team? No problem! Admins can turn off the feature in Settings.

New + improved Knowledge Triggers: manage in the web app, add descriptions, and more!

Hello again Guru Community! Today I’m excited to announce some big and exciting changes to Knowledge Triggers. We’ve added a new page within Guru’s web application that allows authors and admins to easily create, manage, and track Knowledge Triggers. The Knowledge Triggers page can be found by navigating to Settings and will be listed under Guru Tools. You’ll be able to see all Knowledge Triggers for your Guru instance, including:Who created them What date they were created on Who created the Trigger The last time the Knowledge Triggers were activated From this new page, you can also create new Knowledge Triggers (you can still do this within the Chrome extension), delete any Triggers, and edit existing Triggers.When it comes to Knowledge Triggers, context is key. That’s why we’ve added the ability to add descriptions to your Triggers that will display for end users. That way they’ll understand why the Trigger is activated and how they can use it. Have Knowledge Triggers that you want to make sure your team doesn’t miss? We’ve also added the ability to choose how your Triggers display to your users. You can decide between a quieter notification with just an icon (this is how KT’s have historically displayed), or you now have the option to choose a louder notification that will display both the card title and the description. Any existing Triggers you have setup will continue to have the quieter notification unless you update them.But wait…there’s more! We’ve also updated the Knowledge Trigger icon to be more visually striking with our latest branding. Not familiar with Knowledge Triggers? Knowledge Triggers are a feature within Guru’s Chrome Extension that helps to surface knowledge to groups based on specified content or fields on the webpage they are viewing. Deliver the right knowledge to the right people, in their flow of work.

Shared drafts: a new collaborative editing experience in Guru

Hi Guru Community! Many of you have asked for this feature, so I’m excited to let you know that we began releasing collaborative editing in Guru this morning. Thanks to the feedback shared in posts like Indicate when two people are editing a Card, Real-time collaboration on Guru Cards, and Implement shared drafts, we created a new Card editing experience that will let authors collaborate on content, right within Guru.We understand that SMEs and authors often need to get feedback, iterate, and refine what they've written before publishing it. With this new functionality, you can say goodbye to workarounds and keep the process of content collaboration inside of Guru. Shared drafts are available for both newly created and pre-existing Cards, so the whole process of knowledge management can take place right within Guru. The experience should feel similar to other apps you’ve used:Authors working together on a draft.Shared drafts open up a whole new world of publishing workflows! For example, an author can write a draft of a Card, share that draft with someone who can approve and verify it, and then let that approver publish the Card. When it comes to updating existing Cards, we’re making it easier for authors to let readers know what’s changed. Authors can choose to add some context before publishing, so readers that follow Cards can get a TL;DR update before opening the Card. Anyone with access to the Card can also review this note in Card Details.Here’s what’s changing with shared drafts:Users will no longer have their own individual drafts of existing cards.  There will be NO automatic update for existing drafts. Individual drafts of existing cards will be available until November 30, 2023. Individual draft owners can delete, copy, and publish these drafts as necessary before then. These changes will be communicated in-app leading up to the deletion of these drafts after November 30, 2023. You will be able to share drafts of new Cards that you made before this release began if you’d like. Drafts of new Cards that you created before this release will not be removed in November. Drafts will auto-save (just like the editing experience in apps like Google Docs).  The “Save a draft" button no longer appears. The editor will be in full-screen (vs. in an overlay). A new Publish modal will make it clearer whether an author wants to verify the Card and notify followers of the changes.  This modal includes an open text box so publishers can notify followers with a summary of changes to the Card. In the Drafts area of Tasks, you will see collaborators listed next to each Draft, if there are any. Revision history on Cards will show publish change notes and collaborators on that draft. We're consolidating the actions related to publishing a card to the top right of the Card.  We’ve added new filters to the Drafts area of Card Manager. How are you planning to use shared drafts? Let us know how this feature will help your team by leaving a comment on this post!

Introducing Workspaces: Separate Guru instances you can share knowledge across

Greetings Guru Community!Today we launched Workspaces: a feature that gives you the control and flexibility to manage multiple teams, brands, partners, etc. in their own Guru instance, while giving you the ability to share your knowledge across them.  Each Workspace will have separate:Users  Billing Workspace name  Theme colors (if you choose to customize) Dashboard right rail (featured cards + content widget) What can you do across Workspaces:Share knowledge Collections - Shared Collections will be read-only  Send Announcements  Here are some examples of how Guru customers are using Workspaces:Sandbox trial: If you’d like to start with content, there’s no risk of messing up your existing team/Workspace. You can also use this as a way to try out features that you’re not ready to switch on for your main workspace (like Answers or Assist). Expand Guru to a new team at your company: Any new Workspace you create, will begin as a 30 day free trial. You can share some collections from your existing Workspace with the new team, giving them a realistic Guru experience with company knowledge already built in. Subsidiaries, multiple brands, or new acquisitions: Reduce noise and maintain control with separate Workspaces that contain relevant knowledge, users, and custom branding.  BPOs or Partners: Create multiple Workspaces to keep separate login/security, and billing, while sharing relevant knowledge across them. We’d love to hear how you’re using Workspaces!

Updates to popovers on images in Cards

Hi (again) everyone 👋I wanted to highlight a small set of UX improvements that we finished releasing today. With these updates, we’ve improved the usability of the popovers that appear on images contained in Cards. They also clean up confusing icons and buttons and give editors the ability to add alt text without having to use Markdown. If you’ve been keeping a close eye on things you’ll know the alt text update was released a few weeks ago, we’re including it here to make sure more teams are aware of that change!Here’s what’s changing for editors:The download button now downloads images instead of opening them in a new tab. Use the magnifying glass button to see the image at a larger size. Rename the file by clicking on the name of the file. (The name is no longer a link to view the image at a larger size).  A “refresh” icon has replaced the pencil icon for when you need to replace the image. A new “Alt text” button makes it easy to add alt text to the image for people using screen readers. Popover for editors. Here’s what’s changing for viewers:For most images there will be no popover. The buttons will appear in the top right corner of the image on hover. A popover will appear for very small images where the buttons wouldn’t fit. File names will no longer appear because we believe they aren’t useful for most viewers and for cards with many images they can be distracting.  Popover for viewers. We hope these updates make it easier to work with images in Guru!

Use Assist to create content from scratch + more!

Hi Guru Community!Big news today: you can now create new content or edit existing content using custom prompts with Assist. Our existing out-of-the-box actions – such as adjusting tone to make it more conversational or simplifying vocabulary – are still available. But now, you’ll also be able to tell Assist exactly what you want it to do - whether it’s producing content from scratch or refining the knowledge you’ve already written. This new enhancement will give you and other authors on your team the flexibility to create and edit knowledge in ways that fit your company’s specific needs.  Here are a few examples of using custom prompts within Assist:Editing existing knowledge:In the past, you may have used Assist to edit your writing or existing content. For example, you may have selected a paragraph, used Assist to refine/formalize, and then inserted the suggested improvements. But, you also wanted to adjust the tone and simplify vocabulary, which meant using Assist multiple times, performing each action one after the other.With custom prompts, you can have Assist perform all of your intended  improvements and edits in one shot with something like “Refine the flow of this text, then adjust the tone to be conversational, and add a summary to the top of it"Creating knowledge from scratch:You’ve asked an SME on your team to create a card on design best practices, but starting with a blank card can be intimidating. It can be even more intimidating if your SME is a novice writer and not sure where to start. But now they can use Assist to help them by using a custom prompt like: "Create an outline that walks through product design best practices" "Write me a few paragraphs on product design and best practices to keep in mind"From there, your SME has a solid jumping off point to edit and share out their knowledge.  While we encourage you to experiment with custom prompts for yourself first, we also wrote a best practices guide you can reference here.What type of custom prompts are you using?

Guru’s navigation and hierarchy: simplified and standardized

Hey Community 👋We’ve heard from our users that the hierarchy of Board Groups, Boards, and Sections can make it challenging to organize your content in Guru. Each level behaves a little differently, and users can’t store Cards at some of these levels.  That’s why as of today today, Guru has migrated all teams to a familiar “foldered” structure. The Board Groups, Boards, and Sections you’ve already created are now folders. This means you can move Cards to any level of the hierarchy–including storing Cards at the Collection level. This new hierarchy will make it easier to organize your content, as well as making it easier for users to browse and find what they need. Here’s what’s changed:Your existing Board Groups, Boards, and Sections have been converted into folders. Your content hasn’t moved. You can start moving Cards to any level of the hierarchy. Collections have an updated, cleaner appearance that removes the Board Group, Board, and Section icons. The Cards Not on a Board area at the bottom of each Collection has changed: If you have zero Cards not on a Board, this area will no longer appear. If you have one or more Cards in this area, it has been converted into a new folder labeled “[Legacy] Cards Not on a Board.” You can move Cards out of this folder and delete the folder when you’re done reorganizing. The drag and drop experience will be smoother and more consistent. We’d love to hear how you’re using the new, flexible, foldered version of Guru! Leave a comment here and share your thoughts.

New analytics experience: more insights, more context, and new benchmarks

Hi Guru Community! I’m happy to share the news that analytics has gotten a major upgrade, and users on Builder plans and above can see the glow-up today! We’ve kept all the reports you’ve come to rely on, plus we’ve added a whole host of new insights as well as best practice benchmarks so you have context for your company’s usage patterns. Whether you want to drill down into a team’s or an individual employee’s engagement with company knowledge, see what features and integrations are getting the most usage, or understand the performance of announcements over time, the new analytics experience will get you the insights you need, faster than ever. Analytics are now organized into three categories so different types of stakeholders can understand how Guru is being used:Knowledge Health: admins, champs, and knowledge managers can see the overall health of info stored in Guru plus usage stats.

Performance: shows overall performance of Guru and allows team managers to drill down and see how their teams (Groups in Guru) are using the app. We’re especially excited to share that we’ve added benchmarks to several charts so you can see how your team is performing against knowledge management best practices. You’ll see benchmarks for Verification Score and Total Adoption, giving you an actionable jumping-off point to improving your overall Guru health.  On-Card analytics have also been improved in this release. On every Card, you’ll be able to see views, favorites, and follows over time. We’re also introducing the ability to see where people are viewing Guru Cards–whether it’s in the web app, in the extension, or in Slack or MS Teams. Admins will also be able to see Card views by user, right on the Card. You’ll notice a couple of housekeeping changes in this release:Analytics navigation has been moved to the left, so it’s consistent with navigation across Guru. Trust Score has been renamed to Verification Score to better reflect what’s being measured. If you’re using scheduled reports, you’ll need to set up new ones to correspond with the new charts. You’ll receive communications with help on how to do this.If you have feedback on the new analytics experience, please log it in the Product Feedback section of the Community. We’d also love to hear how you’re using analytics in Guru. Drop us a comment on this post and share your story!
