    Is there a way to automatically show the publish/last updated date on the article without having to manually manage it?

    Hi Ailie McAleenan,

    Could you please clarify your question? 

  • Ailie McAleenan

    Sure thing. At the moment when we publish a Zendesk article, they don't have a timestamp on them, so the public doesn't know when it was last updated.

    I was wondering if there's a way to add a timestamp without having to manually add the date to each article.

    Hi Ailie,
    Thank you for reaching out to Zendesk Support.
    In regards to your concern, the following feature to check when the article was last updated can be seen from the article itself. 

    If you're not seeing the following, it could be that your Help Center article page has been modified. Kindly check our article, How do I remove or modify the author, date, or timestamp on Help Center articles? for more information about this.
    Thank you and have a wonderful day ahead!
    Kind regards,

    Hi Shriya Jain,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Can you share the code of the POST request you're making to the article attachment API endpoint so I can look at this in a bit more detail. Just be sure to remove any sensitive information beforehand.

    Is there a way to download the article from Guide as Word or PDF?

    Hi Sanobar Khwaja,

    While it isn't currently possible to download articles from Guide as Word or PDF documents, here is a link to a feedback post where you can note your use case for visibility to our product teams, along with a couple of suggestions on ways you could potentially achieve this with 3rd party tools.

    I hope this helps!
