I am trying to move some cards to a new collection. However, whether I export/import them or use Card Manager, it appears that their view data is reset. Am I missing a step or option somewhere? I am trying to work around issue where the analytics tab doesn’t filter for board or tag. (And card manager view count is always a total, not a affected by the date selected.) The export file from Guru has all the analytics data in it.
We often create public cards that inadvertently link to internal only cards. Would be good if the product warned about this. It doesn’t result in a good user experience for people who try to click on these links.Is it possible to get a warning? If not, possibly you couldwarn if any links within the public card are internal-only a large percentage of links are internal-only delegate the above to user settings
Hi there! My team and I enjoy using Guru, and as I was formatting a card, changing the color of my text, I wondered, “Hm, is this color providing enough contrast for my readers? Is my content going to be accessible?”I searched “accessibility” in the help center, and I didn’t find any relevant articles. I was a little surprised. I haven’t been a big user of the new community yet, but I do see accessibility is on the roadmap. Not a lot of content is tagged “accessibility” for searching, however.Will Guru be focusing on making card content accessible? Will there be documentation to help card authors ensure their content is accessible? Will the authoring experience be accessible as well? Thank you!
Hi all! Product Manager from Guru here.I’ve started a research project looking into how our customers manage users and groups at a large scale, especially if they do so without SSO and SCIM, or if there are gaps in SSO and SCIM that need to be filled manually.Are you a knowledge manager, CX leader, or sales enablement person who finds yourself spending too much time adding and removing users from different groups in Guru?Or maybe an IT admin who has to do manual things in Guru that you think should be automated?I want to talk to you!Please feel free to share your experiences in this discussion, and let me know if you’d be open to a 30 minute Zoom conversation with me.I appreciate you!
Hey Guru friends! I am wondering how many companies utilizing Guru have a dedicated ‘knowledge management/technical writing team’ vs. opening up knowledge capture to a much wider audience? I consider this a traditional approach vs. a crowd sourced approach.Traditional - change management or process/knowledge changes are funnelled into the technical writing team, who then prioritize writing based on resources/bandwidth, etc. They control content with stringent content & style standards.Crowdsource - Anyone (or everyone?) from a team/department owns the content and is empowered to update or create at any time?What works for your teams?
I’ve been looking at templates for hours. All the templates are for very purpose-driven communications. My team of designers wants to make a beautiful internal Newsletter and I’m trying to push for a Guru card instead.I want to show them what can be done -- and without too much custom code because I also have to do this work. Anyone have something elegant yet also engaging they can share so I can convince visual designers to not overcomplicate this? Again, these are designers who make beautiful things. Also, my thinking is that the email announcement that drives to Guru could be animated or something… let’s get those clicks into Guru! lastly -- thoughts on this idea: we just create one Newsletter card and update it monthly, adding to the top, instead of “issues” for each month… thoughts on that?
Hey everyone! Curious, how do you all organize your favorite Cards? I was hit hard by the back-to-school ads this September and felt inspired to get in the spirit and organize my Guru instance. I pulled out all of the stops: I finally worked through that growing verification queue, responded to some outstanding comments and really began to feel that classic fall feeling of being back in a routine with a clean slate. As part of this clean-up, I also decided to re-examine how I was using my Favorite Cards and Lists. Here are a couple of helpful action items I wanted to share: Create an “Action Needed” Favorite List. I can’t believe I haven’t done this before! This is a great place to store Cards that you want to look at again or have a direct action item related to. I also set up a weekly reminder in Slack to take a look at these Cards so the list is maintained. Create temporary lists for current project work. Favorites Lists are easy to edit/update so don’t feel pressure to creat
Hey all! Has anyone used Glean (glean.com) as their KMS or looked at it as part of a KMS evaluation? I have a CTO who is jazzed by it but I just see it as making the chaos more searchable, not solving the problem of wrangling the disparate docs into a centralized location. Obviously, I ❤️ Guru and I’d like to shut down this convo. Welcome your thoughts!
We are getting ready to implement Guru in a phased approach across our ~350 person remote/distributed company. I’m curious how other folks are helping to define for their users what should and should not go in to their Guru knowledge base? For example, we don’t want users to save meeting minutes in Guru, as meetings and other in-progress work is not authoritative/definitive. What guidance do folk give their users to help make it clear what should and shouldn’t be in Guru? TIA!!!!
Some other teams have pages with useful information that we’d like access to in Guru but we don’t want or need to sync the entire space. Is there a way to embed a Confluence page the way that a Google Doc/Sheet can be so that any updates are shown, rather than doing a static copy/paste?
Hi everyone! Just wanted to get some ideas on essentially having 2 verifiers on cards. We have an independent contractor creating and updating all of our health and safety cards. We want the independent contractor to be receiving notifications on cards to be verified and make updates - then we are wanting the card to be verified internally after reviews and change’s have been made. Does anyone have any current processes that sounds similar or some tips on how we could manage this?Thanks team!Grace
User is seeing the card with all the images laid out on top of each other (rather than next to each other in a mosaic) and they can’t scroll down more than a 3-4 lines.This has come up a few times. Happens mainly in Safari.Is it an issue with how I authored the card or with that browser?
Hey! I was wondering if you could make cards invisible in the searchbar but accessible for everyone (only when they need it)? We have small cards that are an element of a ‘head’ instruction. This mostly contains a table which doesn't fit between the instruction or is only necessary in certain situations. Now they show up in the searchbar. This is not convenient because the search bar gives more results than needed and we don't want our employees to mis the important steps where they need to start. We've tried:Include the content in the same Card with the use of markups. This doesn't work because the nummering/bullits will not continue after a markup. Include the content with a table of content. This only makes it difficult for our employees to edit the content because it is not easy to edit for everyone. Put a note in the ‘side’ instruction: ‘you only need this content when ..’ or ‘you've first followed these steps [link] before you start with this Card’. This option is still open if
Hello fellow Gurus,I am trying to get a deeper view of the Searches Producing Results and Searches Producing No Results but I’m getting the error message ‘Failed to fetch’. This is a feature that I have previously used and was working fine. What could be causing this?

I know we’re all dealing with different challenges in this current macro economic environment, ranging from increased scrutiny on all expenses to shifts in strategy to the heightened risk of downsizing and more. What challenges are you all experiencing, or are you starting to think ahead about proactively?If we can surface some of the challenges we’re working through, this can be a space where we can support one another and offer helpful guidance, shared experiences, and resources. Along these lines, we’re holding a two-part Deep Dive webinar series coming up on how to measure and articulate the value of KM and Guru (part 1), and proactively guide conversations about consolidating other tools into Guru (part 2), and I’d love any and all input on how we can shape these sessions (and other resources) to best support you over the coming months. Thanks in advance for your candid input!
Hello! I know a lot of people have asked about find + replace functionality. One of my team members recently wrote in to Guru support about this, and they shared this workaround: https://app.getguru.com/card/TeE45Knc/Google-Sheet-for-Find-Replace. I don't think I've seen this mentioned here, so I wanted to share it in case it helps anyone else!
