Here's how to create a News stream for all registered users to see.
Users see News streams listed above the Connections stream.
You must have Manage News Streams or Manage Community permissions to create, modify, or delete News streams.
For a detailed example of how you might create News streams,
be sure to read this article in the Jive Community. You must be a registered community user to
see this content.
To create a News stream
for everyone in the community:
Go to the News page and click .
Restriction: You'll only be able to see this icon if you are a community manager or have
Manage News Streams permissions.
Give the new stream a title, for example, "Executive News" or "CEO Blog." This is the
stream name users will see on the News page.
Under Places/Blogs, enter or select the place or blog you want the stream to pull content from.
Tip: If you see both a place
and the place's blog listed, keep in mind that selecting the blog would post less content
in the stream. In other words, selecting a place means any new content created
there will show up in the stream. Selecting the blog means only blog posts will show
Under Audience, decide whether you want guest users (users who have not registered)
to be able to see the stream. This is only relevant if your community is visible to unregistered users.
Under Email Options, select whether you want the stream's users to receive email or mobile notifications every time new
content is posted in the place or blog.
Tip: Generally speaking, we recommend setting this to Off.
you'll likely want to enable notifications on the most important content that your users cannot miss.
Just keep in mind that if notifications get noisy, users may stop reading the content.
Click Save, then Publish Layout.
You can create up to ten news streams, which will display on the News
page in the order listed. You can reorder the list by dragging a stream to a new position.
