Recruitment CRM: Use the Summary Field in Knowledge Articles to Make Articles Easily Searchable

When creating Knowledge Articles, make sure that they can be easily found by your target audience. Sometimes they base searches on words that are not a natural part of the article text. In order for these searches to be more productive, Summary can be used for this purpose.

Using the Summary Field in Knowledge Articles

Navigate to the Knowledge Article (if needed)

  1. Click the Article Management Tab from your homepage if showing in your default tabs or click on the All Tabs (+) button and select Article Management from the list. (Note: Articles will only bring up Knowledge Articles to view. You must click on Article Management in order to manipulate Knowledge Articles)
  2. Use the View filters on the left side of the screen to pull up the desired article.
  3. Once the Article Title you want is showing in the list, click on Edit in the Action column. 
    • Note: If the Article Title you want is not showing, check on the bottom of the page for Previous and Next arrows. It defaults to showing 10 articles at a time and it may not be immediately obvious you can navigate further into the list.
