2. No Answer in Service Center?
If you couldn't find an answer to your problem by searching through our knowledge base, it's time to create a Community post!
3. Create a Post by Following Our Simple Guideline!
For the Community to understand what you are trying to achieve and to help them give you an answer, it's important that you give them a fair chance by being as detailed and clear as possible.
Here are some tips to help you create a great Problem Solving post:
- Give your post a title with a clear description of your problem. What is your problem about?
- Be specific:
- What are you trying to do?
- What do you need help with?
- Who is impacted? Is only your user impacted? Or all users?
- Which part of the product is your question about? For example, is the issue about Completeness or are you having issues in Control Center? This helps the reader to better understand the problem.
- Does the Community need to know something about your particular model/setup? Only include relevant information and information that you feel confident sharing outside your company.
Which entity causes a problem? Is it the Product or another entity? Knowing if the problem is isolated to just one Product, Item, or Resource is very useful in finding the root of the problem.
- Let us know what you've already tried. How have you tried to solve the issue? Where in the process did you run into problems? Provide as detailed steps as possible to help the Community reproduce the problem.
- Structure your text into different sections to make it easier to read. This makes the description much easier to follow.
- Include screenshots! Screenshots help the reader get a context. They also make it easier to follow what you're writing and where the problem is located.
