  • Is there an opportunity to further improve your Answers content?
  • For frequently used Answers, is there an opportunity to convert that into a process/product update? For example, if your Agents are frequently using Answers related to shipping during checkout, think about expanding your shipping information during the checkout process.

Infrequently Used Answers
