Obie answers what, where or how questions and deploys flows from the dashboard. Obie is in beta and learning quickly - right now he uses a natural language processing algorithm to search your team's knowledge bases. If you’re having trouble getting Obie to return a result, try typing what is followed by the keywords you want to search for.
Obie also delivers Flows, which are like drip-campaigns for learning. Flows let you automate training and use spaced-repetition to increase knowledge retention... see the Flows question below to learn more about them.

Flows are a series of steps delivered one at a time via Obie. They use spaced-repetition to increase knowledge retention. Create Flows on the dashboard to automate training or to share knowledge, lessons or checklists, and then they will be deployed to your team in message-sized pieces.
Flows are great for new hire tasks, to assign books, or to teach a certain skill. They can include steps like a Google doc, "Watch this YouTube video" or "Read the Sales Book" and you can get points for completing them.
Tip: Try creating a Flow that new hires will be assigned automatically or use one to make sure everyone is caught up with a new process.
