    Can articles be moved from one HC to another?

  • John DiGregorio

    Aside from running an API script is there a way to move articles from one Help Center to another?    We will be consolidating Help Centers in the near future and I have 66 articles in one and 228 in the other.

    Hi Mike McGuffie John DiGregorio,

    The option to move HC content is documented here: Migrating existing content to your help center

    Aside from using API, you can use the following methods:

    • Copying/pasting - If you are only migrating a few articles, then the fastest and easiest way is to simply copy and paste content from your previous help center into a new Guide article.
    • Professional services - If you have large or complex migrations, you can hire Zendesk to help you with your migration.
    • Parter Apps - You can explore the Zendesk apps marketplace to find partner apps such as Help Desk Migration.

    Can the same article be visible in multiple help centers? If so, If I update an article, will the changes show in all applicable help centers?

  • sorin

    Ivy Gilbert having the same article visible in multiple help centers isn't possible in Zendesk Guide. The closes you can get is to you use the Help Center Manager app to deep copy articles from one help center to another, but you still have to maintain the sync manually.
