Defining the periodic review duration for published knowledge articles

A case business analyst can define the time periods for when published knowledge articles are periodically reviewed and validated. When an article review is due or overdue, agents (article assignee or reviewer) are notified so that they can take appropriate actions on it. 

Review process

The following steps show the review process:

  1. A case business analyst defines the review time period for published articles.
  2. The Next Review Date in the Knowledge Metadata section of a published knowledge article shows the date on which the article must be reviewed.
  3. A notification is sent to the article assignee and reviewer about the review date.
  4. A reviewer reviews the knowledge article or extends the review date according to the review time period that is configured by the case business analyst.

Learn more about periodic article review and extending the review time period in Reviewing and validating knowledge articles.
