Sure...I did so today.

My company deployed a new web tool.. There was no instruction on how
the telephone agents were to use it. Through trial and error and
investigation, I created an internal knowledge base article for the
500 agents on how, when, and under what circumstances they were to use
it.

Prior to that, they didn't know what to do with the tool. Now they do.
To me, that was information that they needed that they didn't have
before.

Am I missing something?
