Customer Communities introduces the Smart Assistant—an AI-powered tool that enriches how users interact with search functionalities within their community.

This allows users to access relevant information swiftly, saving time and enhancing productivity.

Additionally, it provides a list of content sources used to generate the summary. Community users can select Learn More to view the list.
