  3. Utility on portal to compare two KB’s including synonyms and alterations and move changes across with one click feature.

    I think it would be appropriate to give a small utility on portal to compare two KB’s including synonyms and alterations and one click feature move the changes across KB. I was trying to implement something similar some time back with v2, but it will be best if it comes on the Portal.

  4. Change back from different pages to one long liste like in the QnA Preview

    Í have structured my QnA by different "sources" so that i have a better overview about the different Topics my bot is covering. So I can fold and unfold the different "sources".

    As there is not one big list anymore in with the full Version, folding and unfolding doesn’t work anymore as one page only contains 10 QnA pairs

  7. Unify format of knowledgebase definition

    Currenty on the QnaMaker portal where you download a knowledge-base definition, the API to download a Knowledge base, and the API to Post or Put a knowledge base all require slightly different formats. Some are .tsv, some are json and the json headers are different.

    Making these all the same (or giving the option to use multiple formats in the API) would greatly simplify CI/CD operations around cloning, versioning, and testing knowled-base.

  8. better support for versioning and deployment slots in API

    Qna maker has no versioning and only two deployment slots (Test and Prod) however the API has no method to run queries or tests on the Test slot. You can only run those tests on the website UX.

    Enterprise customers are asking for supported CI/CD methods around Qna. They want to automate testing. Generally this should include the ability to create a Versioned instance of a Qna Maker knowledgebase. move it to the Test slot, run tests through the API, then publish to that version to prod when they pass. Additionally the versions are also saved so you can roll-back…

  9. Simple WYSISYG editor

    QnAmaker support markdown, but it is not good way for using non-IT people. (Especially, "\n" for new line...)

    I think non-IT(biz side) people is main user for editing Q&A, so editor UI should be more intuitive.

  10. QnA-Maker-Portal-Issue: lost kownledge bases

    Sometimes the QnA-Maker-Portal does not display the knowledge bases which are owned or contributed by me.

    They are simply lost! This is an annoying portal issue, which makes productive working sometimes impossible. Fix this issue!

  16. Add image and video support

    Adding images and videos to an answer is a very important and basic feature for knowledge content today. Text only knowledge bases does not meet the requirements of modern FAQ-content. Missing image and video support is unfortunately a knock-out criterion for QnA-Maker.

  17. For StrictFilters, allow logical "OR" as an option

    When passing in multiple StrictFilters to 'GenerateAnswer', it treats them as "filterA" AND "filterB". Would like the option to treat them as "filterA" OR "filterB" instead. This would allow greater flexibility in the use of StrictFilters.

  19. Allow to provide an existing App Service plan for the QnA Maker App Service.

    When creating a QnA Maker service a new App Service plan is created - you cannot provide an existing one.
    As it's often not possible to move App Services from one App Service plan to another when they are in different web spaces, this results in multiple App Service plans which cannot be shared.

  20. Automized labeling of QnA-Pairs/Lists via Machine Learning Pattern recognition

    Filling a QnA-Maker Knowledge Base automated via a crawler process increases the number of QnA-Pairs/Lists in a way that labeling by humans is no longer possible.

    Provide a source labeling process based on Machine Learning Pattern recognition to identify source groups within large Knowledge Bases.
