Can't find the information that you need? The Guru Q&A "Ask an Expert" feature allows you to ask your question, select the expert or Group best suited to answer it, and then turns their response into a Card. This allows you and the rest of the team to access the answer again. Over time, it even learns from your questions and surfaces Cards accordingly.
