TDX Knowledge: Address Article Feedback

Addressing feedback in a timely fashion is an essential part of keeping our knowledge resources up to date. 

When someone gives feedback on an article, everyone in the group that owns the article receives an email. Only editors can mark individual pieces of feedback on articles as addressed or unaddressed.

  • Group Knowledge Editors can address feedback for any article their Group owns.
  • Global Knowledge Editors can address feedback for any article.
