Use the existing knowledge from your Slack channels to answer new questions and deflect repetitive queries

Indexing Slack Channels as Knowledge Source

After adding Clearfeed to the Slack Channels, you can now index your Knowledge Source as shown below:

Follow the process mentioned below to add private channels as knowledge sources -

  1. Private Slack channels can be added by typing /invite @Clearfeed on the Slack channels.

  2. If the sole purpose of adding Slack channels is to serve as a knowledge source, there is no need to configure channels as request or triage channels.

  3. After adding Clearfeed to your private channels, you can set those channels as knowledge sources by following the process outlined below.

Step 1: Add your first Knowledge Source

  • Navigate to Answers from the navigation bar, and hover over the "Add Knowledge Source" dropdown at the top right corner to select Slack.

  • A side drawer will appear, prompting you to provide specific details:

    • Name: Designate a title for this Knowledge Source, which will be displayed on ClearFeed.

    • Tags: These are identifiers linked with every Knowledge Source, aiding in categorization and structuring. Customize tags based on your needs. Note: Slack will be a default tag.

    • Duration: Select the duration of the Slack data you wish to index as a knowledge source.

    • Channels: Select the Slack channels you want to add as the Knowledge source. You can select multiple Slack channels in this field.

    • Auto Reindex Channels Regularly: Enable this option to automatically reindex updated threads from Slack channels into the knowledge source

  • After saving your addition, the Knowledge Source will either start indexing immediately (reflected by an Indexing status) or will be picked soon (reflected with an Initiated status). Get more details on Managing Knowledge Sources here.

  • Reindexing Slack Channels - Slack channels are automatically reindexed with new threads and messages within less than 24 hours

Step 2: Test your Knowledge Source
