Adding Content by File Upload


Files are  a static source of content for your App. Consider a scenario in a bank where the business user has prepared a step-by-step guide for the bank customer on “How to open an online Demat account”. This guide can help banking customers to know about opening a Demat account.

SearchAssist allows you to upload such How-to guides in file format into the App. You can upload files of PDF, DOCX, PPT, XLSX, and TXT file types. These files will be indexed and will be available for ready retrieval, as answers to the search queries. 

Upload a File either by browsing from a local storage and uploading or from the  URL path from where the file is accessible.
