Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Questions app? Questions app helps find answers to questions your employees have. This app is also great in telling who the experts are in your company.

Who can ask a question? Any user of the domain including guest users can ask a question.

Who can you ask questions to? Questions can be asked to all your followers and to the teams you are a part of.

Who can accept an answer? The user who asked the question can only mark an answer as accepted. Only 1 answer can be marked as accepted. However when a better answer becomes available the accepted answer can be changed. You can also undo the accepted answer if required.

Who can upvote or downvote an answer? Anyone who can view the answer can upvote or downvote it. The user can only cast 1 vote per answer (either upvote or downvote). At this time once the upvote or downvote is posted it can't be changed.

Where can I see all the answered questions? Under the Answers tab you can choose the filter 'Answered Questions' to see all questions that have been answered.

How do I become an expert? Points are earned by answering questions asked. They are given for both answering a question and when someone accepts your answer. So the more questions you answer, the better chances you have of becoming an expert.

Do I get points for answering or asking questions If levels and badges are turned on for your domain, you will receive points for answering and asking questions. Only, we won’t tell you how exactly to get them (Because where’s the fun in that?), so keep answering to get more points and badges!
