Sections come below categories, and appear both on the Help Center homepage and their category landing page.
Kayako's Help Center organizes self-service articles into two levels of hierarchy. Categories are at the top, with sections beneath them. Categories are the big headings on the front page of your Help Center, and sections the subheadings that appear beneath them. Every article is published within a specific category and section, and you can rearrange the order in which any of those things appear.
In addition to your public self-service content, you can use the Help Center's visibility restrictions to host internal articles that are only available to certain customers or agents. Choose whether articles are visible to only staff members, to only logged-in customers, or to anyone visiting the site by modifying the visibility at the section level.
Editing your categories, sections, and articles are all done directly from the Help Center. Once you are logged in, you will see content editing controls appear throughout your content pages, allowing you to make updates on the fly.
- To edit sections on the Help Center, you will need an administrator or agent account with the 'Manage the Help Center' permission.
