I am a Knowledge User and having Knowledge Only license. We are using Napili template on Community. I have created 2-3 articles but whenever I login to Community I am not able to see those article. Can you please look into this issue?

  1. Created a new Article, added categories and checked all the channels
  2. Published the article by clicking publish button.
  3. Now, I logged in to Community and searched the newly created article but its not visible to me.

Sandip, 

You need to add those article data categories and associate them to the Navigational topics in the Community Builder.

Correction - Navigation Topics is in Community Management, not the Community Builder. Sorry for any confusion.

Agree with James -- and the important part is that when you retrieve articles for the Topic, only the existing articles are associated. You have to repeat that step after you have created more articles.
James GoerkeJames Goerke
Indeed... I don't like that part of communities. I have a task set for myself daily to go through and re-add all of the data categories just in case there were any missed or created since the last topic update. Not the best but its in option that only takes less than a minute each day.

Thanks a ton for the Answers!
As a community manager , I have to manually add all newly created Topics and Data Categories through Navigational Topic.
Is there any way to automate this manual process so that whenever we create and publish the Artilce it should be auto refreshed, get added and will be visible on Community?
Jeff MayJeff May
Nope, not yet.  You could submit and Idea, I suspect tons of us Admins who manage Communities would vote for it.  
Until then, as you are doing the manual add, know that we are all out here doing the same thing.
James GoerkeJames Goerke
Not that I'm aware of. As I mentioned, I spend a minute each day going through and adding the data categories to the Navigational Topics. You could have a different approach, maybe a weekly knowledge review, where all the newly Articles are reviewed and added.

The relevant idea is called 'Automatically assigning articles into Navigational Topics'. It only has 7 votes so far, so if you care about this PLEASE go vote.

In order to add data categories in Navigational Topics do the topics first need to be created as topics in the Engagement Topics section? Right now there are no topics in my Engagement section, are these topics related to merging or using subtopics?.Also when you click the pencil(Customize this Insights Report in your internal org) in Moderation it takes you to Report Type: Network Topics 3.0 in Salesforce Setup. Is this an important step before building this out in a community? Also curious how this relates to using knowledge feature in a community. Sorry for so many questions.  thx.
