Searchable Attachments

Fully integrate documents into your knowledge base

Search indexation of attachments means that you can upload document files and get them fully integrated into your knowledge base. There may be a lot of documents that you want to include to the knowledge base. It is not necessary to copy-paste them into articles. You can just upload a file and it gets indexed on the fly. So you get your documents searchable like any other piece of data in your knowledge base and they are also easily downloadable since they are stored as is.
