KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - Suggest a Document Link - How to Submit a Suggestion

The Suggest a document link allows users to submit requests for new documentation.

Where to Find the Suggest a Document Link

When a user clicks on any of the Suggest a document links they will be taken to the Submit or Suggest a New Document Form.

Any text in the search box will be placed in the "Suggested Keywords" field for the user convenience.

Then image below shows the Make a Suggestion form with the word "custom" pre-polulated in the Keywords field.

The user fills in the rest of the fields on the form and clicks the Submit button.

Underneath the Make a Suggestion form is Terms and conditions so the user knows what to expect. Below is the text:

Link on Top of Search Box

The image below shows the word "pear" in the search box of the Office of the Registrar's KB site. Since there are no documents in that KB space with the word "pear", the words, "No matches." appear in addition to a link, "Suggest a document". This link leads to a feedback form with the keywords you entered pre-populated in that form.
