How to Use The Other People Ask Feature#

Getting Started#

Setting up “Other People Ask” for a project is easy.

First, make sure that your Squirro installation is running a Version (> 3.5.7) that supports the “Other People Ask” functionality. You may also check in the configuration section of a project if you can locate the configuration key topic.search.similar-searches-configuration. If is available, “Other People Ask” is enabled and ready.
