Creating and adding FAQs to hoots

Where do FAQs get used?

Add FAQs to Hoots to provide additional context to users when they are interacting with the hoot badge. You can assign an FAQ directly to a hoot or you can assign it to a tag or Sentry and any hoot that uses the tag or Sentry will automatically have the FAQ show-up for it.

For example, if you have a common tag (for example, sales commission) for all Sales Tableau hoots, associate the FAQ with the tag, sales commission, and all the Hoots using the tag will automatically get the FAQ.
