What does it mean to update a KB record?
Update means to change an active KB record. A KB editor or the librarian who added the record can update an active record as needed to add, change, or correct information in most fields of the record.
Can I edit my KB records?
You can edit records that you add to a KB while they are inactive (before a KB editor activates them) and when they are active. If a record that you added has an Edit button, it is still inactive. You can click the button to begin to edit the record.
If a record that you added has an Update button, it is active. You can click the button to begin to update the record.
You cannot delete the record unless you are a KB editor.
You can also report needed corrections and changes for an editor to consider. An editor can add or remove information or remove an entire record.
