Customer service agents can search for information that is related to a case when opening a case or in a case that is already open. If the search results in any related content, the agent can preview the content. If the information is relevant, the agent can mark it as helpful. Knowledge articles can be also attached to the case.
Note: By default, search results include knowledge articles, solved community questions and blogs, and pinned articles.
