I've been playing around with the example and I love the drop downs.
It's impressive.
I hope to see how communities will use this.

"Curate the content that gets displayed to customers by deploying and moving content modules: company updates, curated topics (such as FAQs), topic search, etc."


Can you expand on the curated topics point? Are you adding a specific FAQ type topic that can be edited at any time, as suggested in this popular idea topic?

As of right now, we are not adding a specific FAQ topic type. We know it's a very popular idea that has been around for a long time. It's been brought up to the Product/ Engineering team, but there has not been a decision on if/ when it'll be added to the roadmap.

In terms of curating topics, those on qualified plans can curate the topics that show in their widgets by using Private Tags (UDC codes). For example, on our new help page, I curated the topics that show in the widgets by using a private tag because I wanted specific questions to show. There are also other options to curate widget content by specifying a certain topic type or product.

Definitely let us know if you have more questions!

Thanks Caty. These workarounds plus the new ability to close topics for comments sound like they will help us create and manage our FAQ type content.

BTW, your new help page really needs a search box. I guess you want people to find similar questions/problems by using the topic creation box, but to me at least, that feels unintuitive.

Excellent point - we should add a search box to this section which itself is an example of an Engage widget 'content block' - thanks for suggesting this.

Yes, I totally agree with both you and Phil! The search box was definitely an unintentional oversight and we will get one integrated into the help page soon. :)

We contacted you regarding issue with IE8, Zak said he was going to get someone to contact us, as our initial email went unanswered.

Can someone come back to us on the issues with EI8 that we encountered as we are really keen to push it live.

I'm still trying to figure out what api means and the purpose of it or having it anyone answer my question

Caty, Employee

Hey Cecelia,

API stands for "applications programming interface" and we have both an open & premium (paid) API available for companies to use. The APIs allow companies to build their own custom applications leveraging the data that gets pulled from our API. APIs are typically things that developers and coders use. Here's some additional API resources:

- Getting Started with the API:

Hope that helps clarify things a bit!
