Create your first Halp Answer with these templates

Our users love automating FAQs with Halp Answers, but sometimes it can be tricky to know where to get started. So much to automate, so little time.

But creating answers can actually be super quick and easy. You can add them directly from the Halp web interface, or create them in Slack on the fly by adding a 📖  emoji to a response you’ve sent.

💡 Pro Tip: Make it personal. Even an automated message can feel individualized by adding in an empathetic acknowledgment, like “I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble!” or a personal greeting. When creating an answer, you can incorporate placeholder variables like {{}} that will automatically populate when shared with a requester.




These are just a few ideas to get you started, but there are countless ways to automate the way you support your users with Halp.
