Information is everywhere.
Answers are on Stack Overflow.
No more digging through stale documentation, lost emails, and chat threads. For every developer and every team, Stack Overflow makes it easy to search and find answers in a private and secure environment.Get started
Why Private Q&A?
Your team has knowledge buried in old docs, emails, chat messages—and in people’s heads. Stack Overflow gives your team a private, secure home for questions and answers, reducing siloed knowledge and the time it takes to find the right information.
Free up resources
It’s expensive and time-consuming to answer the same questions over and over. By making the right information searchable, your private Stack Overflow community serves as the centralized source-of-truth, allowing your entire team to focus on building better software.
A challenge for teams of all sizes is ramping up new coworkers fast without taking up too much of everyone’s time. Give the newest members of your team instant access to everything they need to know in your private Stack Overflow community.

How it works
Integrates with your workflow
Mention teammates who can help answer a question and get email notifications of new answers and comments. Stack Overflow integrates with your favorite tools like Slack.
Unlimited questions and answers in a searchable archive
Every Q&A post is indexed and easy to search, and you can export your data at any time. Built on Stack Overflow’s flagship Q&A engine, the platform 50 million users know and trust for answers.
Get answers—not documents
Stack Overflow is different from most knowledge management software. No need to import existing documentation or create new docs. Q&A is built to mimic the way people naturally think about, share, and find information.
Add as much (or as little) structure as you need.
Tags are a quick, flexible way to structure your Team’s data. Browse your Team’s tag list or watch certain tags for quick access to topics that interest you.
Get recognition for helping others
Every time someone posts a great question or answer, they earn badges and reputation points. These incentives make it fun and rewarding to contribute.
Your data is safe
Rest easy knowing that your team’s data is secure. Depending on the solution you choose, your data is secure in its own hosted environment or in a dedicated network and logically separated into its own SQL schema.
