Hi everyone!I'm curious to hear how does your Guru team use Knowledge Triggers? What questions do you have about our Knowledge Trigger feature?Knowledge Triggers can be used to surface information using the Guru extension over specific webpages. On the Support team, we use Knowledge Triggers in a few different ways:Logging Bugs: We have a Guru Card that outlines how to assign a bug based on our internal engineering system When we are over app.shortcut.com, we surface that Card automatically in the extension for easy access, no search required! Customer Conversations: When using Intercom, our chat platform, we use Knowledge Triggers to surface information about the tags that we use to keep track of customer conversations I'd love to hear how your team uses Knowledge Triggers or answer any questions you might have about the feature!You can also watch this Deep Dive session on Knowledge Triggers for some more examples. 😄
Hello!This might be a weird situation. We think that the editing/designing possibilities are quite limited in the Guru Card Editor. Therefore, we have made our card design more intractable and flexible by utilizing Markdown (HTML/CSS).Although, it seems that our cards are “rendered” differently on the website, compared to the Guru Extension. Is there a way to solve this? Card in Guru Extension:Card in Guru website
We understand how knowledge triggers (KTs) are set up and work, but when do they “go away”?I’ve noticed that when a KT appears in the Chrome extension, even after selecting the card or cards that the KT has pushed to the user, this is not enough to make the KT go away.Aka, even after1. selecting the relevant cards AND2. navigating away from the relevant informationGuru is still prompting the user that they are missing something important, which is not true.Does anyone else have this issue?
When looking though I didn’t find a way to parse all the comments made on all cards in all collections for a given time frame. As a Guru admin, I would like to be able to ensure that all comments that were made in a given time frame were seen and addressed (both resolved and open). I may have missed it when going through the options and documentation. Please do let me know if I missed it or have any ideas for a workaround (maybe an email filter or using the API). Thanks in advance! 😃🙏
Is there any way to know how many of our users have Slack notifications enabled or somehow only allow Slack notifications for our users? Our organization doesn’t use email unless interacting with clients and external stakeholders and if our users don’t make this change, it is a given they will overlook some important announcements. We are using SCIM in Okta, if that makes any difference???
I’m trying to copy and paste information from OneNote into various cards in Guru. When I do a regular copy/paste, it inserts an image of the text box, not the text itself. I can do a Ctrl+Shift+V to paste without formatting, which at least inserts as plain text. However it removes any bold/text color, which is cumbersome to go back and re-add. Does anyone have any helpful tips for copy/pasting text into a Guru card?
Hi! Is there a way to check within Guru where cards are embedded? Our use case is for Guru cards embedded into Workramp. When a Guru card changes, we want to be sure to double-check the content in the places where that card is embedded to make sure those workflows still make sense. I don’t believe this is a feature, but I thought I’d check. Thanks!
Hi everyone: I’ve recently started experimenting with Guru for knowledge base for some of our company’s functions and seems like a great tool - still learning it but like it a lot.We use make.com for quite a few integrations in lieu of directly programming API calls and I wondered iff anyone had explored this as I didn’t see GetGuru as an option within the Make.com/Integromat integrations. I noticed some stuff about Zapier, which we have also used but are most comfortable with the Make/Integromat system
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?
We use Microsoft Sway for our newsletters, which look great. Is there a way to embed something like that into a card? We’d like to use Guru to distribute and archive our monthly internal newsletters, but I’d like a little more integration than just pasting a series of links onto a card. Any suggestions?
We love creating cards in bulk using a spreadsheet. The latest collection has over 1300 individual cards that were created in bulk, with several shared tags.On the flip side, we love tags, but were curious if the ability to select (and delete) more than one tag at a time would be a feature coming? Selecting each individual tag and then deleting them, or moving them one by one is a bit cumbersome.
When I have my Slack notifications turned on, and one of my groups is asked a question through Ask an Expert I appear to be getting duplicate notifications. Below are some examples. Is this working as intended, or is there a setting turned on somewhere that I need to turn off?
Hey all! Wondering if anyone is using a Query tool (like Google’s BigQuery or MySQL) to be able to conduct card audits?I’ve been using Guru’s Google Sheet for Find and Replace to do many of my card audits (not necessarily replacing, just surfacing potential documentation impacts) and with our volume of cards, we’ve outgrown it (it tends to be a tedious, buggy process).As I have a chance to advocate for some additional tools, wanted to see what others were using to know if my ask is out of scope.
Hello! A couple of my teammates have noted that when they attempt to copy/paste content into a Guru card, it won’t paste the most current thing they’ve copied. I’ve noticed this happen when I have specific programs open in the background (namely Notion), but I’m not sure what is causing it otherwise. The workaround they’re using is to copy a link from elsewhere, paste it into a blank note, and then recopy/paste it into Guru. Has anyone else run into this?
Hi all - we are trying to prepare to have a process in place if pii data needs to be deleted (if anybody has any best practices, we’d love to hear). But our bigger question is that when we delete cards, we see that the image file link still exists. Can we get some clarity on when cards are deleted and what happens to files/images/etc that are associated with the card?

Hi all - We’ve been using Guru as our KMS, but we will be sunsetting our current internal comms system (open source that has been integrated with Slack) and using Guru for that in the future. Teams update the company on major initiatives and status check-ins, but sometimes the knowledge doesn’t move out of the announcement itself (in effect, sometimes the internal comms system was treated as a knowledge base separate from the one we were using). We are thinking about using Guru announcements to share newsletters and team updates in cards. I’m hoping fellow Guru users might provide some insight into how they are utilizing Guru for internal comms:Do most people create a separate internal comms collection and how is that structured? Or are team collections housing those updates? When teams are providing updates, how are internal comms staff encouraging their teams to make sure that any stable knowledge is added into the announcing team’s collection where the other relevant knowledge alre
Hi everyone!We've recently rolled out Guru for our support team, and have used elements of KCS methodology in developing many of our processes. I'm now looking to take the next steps.Does anyone have experience following a KCS curriculum path/certification from the Consortium for Service Innovation? If so, I'd love to hear about your experience with the course and how you've tied these practices into Guru. Similarly, if anyone has used other KCS courses/resources that have informed your use of Guru, I’m all ears!
