The "quick edit" button described in this document is different from the "Edit this page" button that can be displayed in your live Internal KB site. For more information about this button, please see KB User's Guide - SitePref Tab - Edit This Page button.

  1. Begin by logging into the KB Admin Tools.

  2. Click on the Documents tab.

  3. The Documents tab will lead to a document queue and displays a table sortable by various criteria. One of the columns in the table is labeled Edit. (see red arrow in image in item 4).

    For detailed instructions on how to use the search fields and links to look through available documents, please see KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - Searching for Documents.

  4. Click the Edit button to access the document editor for a given document.

    • Note: If the edit button has a dashed border, you only have partial edit access to the document. If it is grayed out, this indicates that you do not have write access.
