Articles on the Knowledge Base use tags related to the structure of the Apollo.io platform.
That means you can use keywords like Home, Search, Engage, Enrich, Opportunities, and Settings to find articles specifically related to that part of the platform.

Finally, you can also use one of the following modifiers on your search to show more target types of articles:
- How-to: Articles that explain a process or teach you how to use a specific feature
- Procedure: Similar results to how-to, this will return articles that explain a process or teach you how to use a specific feature.
