    Hi Russell,

    Thanks for this request. I've forwarded your idea to our design team so they can look into creating something like this in the future.

    If you need anything else or have more ideas you'd like to share, please feel free to reply back.

    Thanks!

    We have basically the same problem. Users don't seem to know the difference between spam and phishing emails. So most of the "Phishing" tickets we get in are just spam emails trying to sell you stuff and what not.

    Hi Austin,

    Thank you for your input.  I have sent an additional request for this feature to our development team for review.  As stated before, we base a lot of our development on customer feedback, so we appreciate your input.

    Thank You!

    This would be a great idea.

    An "Security, Hints and Tips" email template would be great!

    Or a short 5 minute training course!

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for your input! We currently have a training course on the roadmap for how to use the Phish Alert Button. This will clarify the difference between SPAM and phishing emails, specifying when users should and should not use the PAB. I will also add your idea of the Security Hints and Tips email template on this topic to the roadmap.

    Thanks again!

    Hi, we're running into the same issue here.  We're completely overwhelmed with folks using the button to report everything except actual phishing.  Is there any update on the training or infographic?  Thanks in advance!

    Hi Lee,

    I do not have an update on the timeline of the course at this time, but we will put another request in for it to ensure that they can prioritize accordingly.

    Thank you!

    I too are having staff members who are asking for the difference and ultimately I would love to provide a response to these recipients with a link that explains the difference and a perfect link would be to direct people to a knowbe4 web page

    Hi All! 

    We've released a training module that addresses this issue! This short module titled, Using the Phish Alert Button: Report Suspicious Emails, teaches viewers how to distinguish between spam, phishing, and spear phishing emails.

    From your KnowBe4 account, you can search for "Phish Alert" in the Modstore to find this course. 

    We hope this helps! 

    Regards,
