What triggers Knowledge Base article notifications?

    Hey Kirsten - 

    This appears to be a bug. Our team is looking into it, because it's not supposed to function this way. We'll keep you posted as we get it sorted out.

    Hi Kristen,

    As Nicole mentioned, we are looking into this.

    But I just wanted to clarify, that it is expected behavior for a notification to be sent when an article is moved from one section to another. That has always been true.

    Notifications should not be sent, though, when you add/remove tags or promote/unpromote articles. We are looking into that and will report back.

    Hey again Kirsten - 

    The Guide team has fixed the bug that was sending the notifications around removing things from promoted status and removing tags. As Jennifer said, switching things between sections should send a notification, but the others should be gone. 

    Let us know if you're still having issues/seeing this behavior.

    Is there documentation that lists out under what conditions a notification is triggered?

    Hi Reshma,

    There's no documentation that goes into this specifically. However, your agents/users would be notified of any changes if they're subscribed to an Article, Section, or Community Post. You can find out more information that addresses this here: Using Help Center

    Let me know if you have any other questions :)
