Smart FAQ - General Release

What happens when your users do not find answers after going through the FAQs? In most cases, they discover ways to reach out to support without providing a lot of context of their problem. That is going to change with this new feature called ‘Smart FAQs’ that allows your end users to fill in a Smart Form that creates an issue and collects contextual information, right within the FAQ experience.

With Smart FAQs, you can capture the context right at the point of origination leading to:

Search Capability in External APIs Page

We have added search capability in "External API Requests" page. Owing to multiple external API configurations, it might become difficult for admins to search for a particular API. With this change, now the admins can use the "Search" option to access relevant APIs. This also enables searching for a particular type of API like GET, POST etc. This will help the admins to quickly search , modify and check through a long list of APIs.
