Animate the Self Help tab to catch the user’s attention

Animating the Self Help tab increases your chances to catch users' attention and help them find answers themselves.


Deliver specific content to users using Tags

Segment Self Help using Tags so that end-users receive more relevant and focused content. You can tag content based on the pages you want them to appear or the roles to whom you want them to appear. For example, if you want certain content to be displayed only to account managers, then you can create a role tag and add that tag to your content.

For more information, see Adding Tags to content.
