What is Confidence?
Knowledge Center uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to evaluate the questions that you enter into the Search field. The search field is available in both the Search view and the Browse Category view. Knowledge Center matches your questions, phrases, and character strings to FAQs in your organization's Knowledge Base and selects the FAQs and answers that best match the question.Knowledge Center uses AI to assign a confidence level as a percentage to each FAQ and then presents you with the FAQs that have the highest confidence ratings.
You can help the Knowledge Center AI to improve its confidence level for each FAQ by up-voting or down-voting one or more FAQ search results.
On the right side of each FAQ is the following question: Was this helpful? Next to it is a thumbs-up and a thumbs-down icon. To up-vote the FAQ, click the thumbs-up icon. To down-vote the FAQ, click the thumbs-down icon. To make improvements to matching FAQs to questions entered by agents, Knowledge Center gathers all the up-votes and down-votes from all the agents in your organization.
Search results are always sorted by the confidence number assigned by the Knowledge Center AI. Next to the thumbs-up and thumbs-down icons is the confidence number assigned by Knowledge Center. That does not necessarily mean that the FAQ with the highest confidence number is the answer you are looking for. As an agent, you must evaluate the search results and choose the best response for your contact.
Select the best answer from your organization's Knowledge Base based on your experience and knowledge.
By providing feedback about the Knowledge Center's FAQ matches, you can improve the search results in the future for yourself and your colleagues.
