Managing Article List Views

            Managing Article List Views

            Article List Views are beneficial for displaying articles that were published, drafted or pending review in your knowledge base. For example, you may be the KB owner interested in following-up on the articles that needs review or you may want to filter out the articles that were meant for your internal agents. The best way to handle these scenarios is to filter the articles using the list views. You can also use the article List Views for updating article permissions, adding tags, deleting articles in bulk and moving articles between sections.

            Set Display Preferences
            By default, Zoho Desk will display only 10 articles per page. However, you can click the Preferences icon ( ) to choose the number of records to be displayed on a page. A maximum of 50 articles can be viewed per page. The system will remember your selection, the next time you access article list views. 

            Besides this, you can sort the articles based on 3 different parameters, namely:
            • Article Title
            • Created Time and
            • Modified Time
            Click the Preferences icon ( ) to sort your knowledge base articles by one of the above parameters.


            Sort Article Order
            Articles in the list view can be sorted by the latest or oldest order. You can click the Sort icon
            ( ) to sort the articles by age. 

            Mass Actions in Article List Views
