Question 4

Which of the following is considered a best practice for managing the Valid To date for Knowledge
articles?

  • A. Allow the authors of Articles to set the Valid To date of each individual Article
  • B. Determine the Valid To timeframe of your articles based upon the type of article and volatility of information in the article
  • C. Leave the Valid To dates to the default value of 2020-01-01
  • D. Do not set Valid To dates for Knowledge Articles
Answer:

B

User Votes:

B

C

D
50%

Explanation:
The default value for this field is set in the Dictionary to 2020-01-01. Users may manually select a
new date when
editing articles. However, this approach does not promote consistency for effective article
management.
Consider setting the Valid to date as part of the publish Knowledge function in the KBWorkflow Script
Include. If the
Valid to date depends on the type of article (e.g. Policy or Support article), a copy of the
Publishing workflow may be created with a branch for each article type/ category. (Since categories
may be
different for each Knowledge Base, this would not be appropriate to include in the Script
Include logic.)

must be used to
update the incidents.

Explanation:
Resolution and Recovery: Once the Root Cause has been identified, determine whether the
established Workaround is
sufficient to restore service to related Incidents and prevent the occurrence of future Incidents. If
not, you may
decide to implement a permanent fix to the
Problem by creating a Change Request. Once the Change has been implemented or a Known Error
State has
been deemed acceptable, close the Problem record.
If a Change is pending implementation, the Problem state should be "Pending Change" instead of
"Known Error".
