Who can use this?



The Q&A experience allows learners to post questions and get answers from experts in their private organization. With Q&A, you and your peers learn collaboratively.

To get to the Q&A page, click the Q&A icon at the top of every page. Once there, you’ll see four main interaction points:

A.   Ask a private question within your org. Use the gear icon to edit your knowledge areas and notification settings.

B.   Filter questions and answers by topic. Refine your results further with the search filter.

C.   Browse all questions. Those with a Match tag indicate a question that matches your chosen knowledge area. Those with a Resolved tag indicate a question that received a satisfactory answer.

D.   Become a top top contributor by asking and answering questions, commenting, and having your responses marked as helpful.

Note: All Q&A data belongs to the Enterprise plan organization. Learners who leave the plan cannot take their questions or answers with them. If a learner leaves your plan, their questions and answers will remain as resources for people still on the plan.

Using Q&A

Note: If you are a plan admin, you must have a license in order to view and engage with Q&A.

Select your knowledge areas

Before getting started, we recommend selecting your preferred knowledge areas. Knowledge areas are skills and topics in which you feel most confident sharing your expertise. Click the gear icon in the top right corner to select your knowledge areas. You'll then receive an email and in-app notification whenever a question is matched to your knowledge area. You may edit your knowledge areas and notification settings at any time from the gear icon.

Ask a question
