Snippets are reusable assets within Brightspot's knowledge management. See Snippet for more information.

Snippets are added to other assets from the rich-text editor.

  2. In the rich-text editor, place your cursor where you would like the snippet to appear.
  3. In the rich-text toolbar, click post_add.
