November 2020 Changelog

Last month, we launched an exciting new FAQ experience to help better organize your FAQs for scale which included the ability to assign non-Obie Administrators verification privileges.

With this update, it only made sense to completely re-engineer Obie Content Verification to help ensure knowledge across your organization is up to date and relevant!

Read on to see all that’s new for you in November..

A complete overhaul to Obie Content Verification 

  • Available on all Obie native content (Obie Knowledge Base & FAQs).
  • New freshness meters (verification is no longer binary).
  • The ability to assign knowledge experts to help manage Content Verification and reduce the bottleneck on Obie Admins.
  • New Requests tab to manage all content actionable items.
