What is a knowledge base?

A knowledge base is a single source of institutional knowledge that your company provides to customers 24/7 without requiring customer interactions. It is basically a directory full of content, which can help your clients troubleshoot their issues or find information/solutions they seek.

Nowadays, it is quite a popular tool to answer common questions, so the customers don’t need to contact agents and wait in line unnecessarily. Instead, agents can simply answer repetitive questions by creating articles for clients.

LiveAgent’s knowledge base is a part of a self-service portal. Thus, you will not only get to create knowledge base articles, but you can also create forums and allow your customers to track their inquiry statuses and history.

4 simple steps for setting up your knowledge base software

A knowledge base platform can play a crucial role in your overall customer support.

What are the advanced features of the knowledge base?

internal knowledge base

Internal knowledge base

Knowledge base articles are a great way to provide self-service for your customers 24/7. But, what if you want to offer the same option for your internal team? LiveAgent has got you covered.

LiveAgent’s internal knowledge base function lets you customize an online library that contains information about the onboarding process, company knowledge, events, awards, new promotions, etc.

The internal knowledge base functions the same way as the one for your customers. Thus, you can categorize the topics neatly and have a search box, so your employees can immediately view relevant content.

Having an internal knowledge base tool not only improves your employee productivity and workflows but also enables your customer service team to provide professional assistance without any delays. 


LiveAgent’s forum is a powerful tool for knowledge sharing between customers. It is an excellent place for customers to engage and help each other troubleshoot their problems and get instant answers.

Moreover, businesses can also create internal forums, which significantly improve team collaboration. For example, the internal forum can be an excellent medium for discussing solutions and proposals with colleagues. Further, the employees can view previous questions that colleagues may already have answered.

Feedback & Suggestions

Feedback is an essential and inevitable part of every business. Even if you don’t want it, it is still there. Your business should always view user feedback as a tool to improve services/products and grow. Moreover, allowing your clients to provide feedback and suggestions makes them feel heard, ultimately improving customer loyalty.

LiveAgent offers a highly customizable and easy-to-use feedback button, another powerful feature that prompts visitors to give feedback/suggestions. In this way, your company demonstrates that it is open to customer feedback and will strive to meet clients’ needs.  

Search widget

It is essential to have a powerful search engine bar so that your customers can find information quickly and easily. Organizing your knowledge base content by category is a great way to make it easy to search, but most customers won’t take the time to do that just to find the relevant article.

Furthermore, it is essential to remember that having quality knowledge base articles is not enough. If visitors cannot find appropriate content, they are likely to contact your customer representatives unnecessarily. So, do not underestimate the quality search functionality inside a knowledge base and check out LiveAgent’s easy-to-use search bar with multiple customization options.

User-friendly dashboard

Having an effective knowledge base is about helping your clients with relevant content. However, you should not forget about your employees as well. Having a user-friendly dashboard in a knowledge management tool is another key feature, which might be often overlooked.

LiveAgent’s interface lets your agents create new articles with little to no training time. Ready to try it out? Try the free demo and see for yourself.


The whole point of creating an online knowledge base software solution is for it to be easily searchable. However, the more content your business makes, the more it can get chaotic. As a result, LiveAgent allows you to create categories so your customers, and you won’t get lost in the content.

Customer service departments often need to share file attachments with clients, such as PDFs or video tutorials. This is why it is beneficial to have knowledge management software that accommodates such functionality – so that you no longer have to go through the hassle of sending a google doc through google drive to a customer. Instead, you can simply create a relevant article, which also includes a file attachment. 

Multi-knowledge base

A multi-knowledge base comes in very handy if your company sells several products, brands, or provides several independent services. A single LiveAgent account gives you the opportunity to create unlimited knowledge bases, with each of them having its own unique design, settings, and content.

Provide your customers with the knowledge they want with stunning guides.

Then, fill these categories in with content, using the built-in WYSIWYG editor. Style the content with your preferred headings, colours, styles, and pictures to create a better structure for your articles. Being accessible and approachable doesn’t need to be hard.
