On a early February update we implemented a huge game changer, it gives off the hability to our server index PDF content to our search, that's right not only Title, text, tags and subtitle will be taken in consideration, the content inside your file will also appear on your search!

To activate this feature it is fairly simple:

  1. Access your settings panel:
  2. On the Knowledge Base settings you'll see this (picture below), marking as active you're already good to go

To use it just upload an attachment PDF file and publish your question.

Previously attached PDF files will not become searchable by default, if you want to index them to your search just republish the image and you'll be set!
