Find Stuff You Need

Here's a quick guide for learning how to find stuff you need.

You can make use of the following ways to keep track of, and find, everything that's important to you. And remember, as you develop behavior patterns in the community, Jive will recommend relevant content, people, and places based on your activity.

For more searching tips and tricks, be sure to read the topics in the Finding People, Places, and Content section.

Tip: Browse the people and places that your co-worker or someone with similar interests follows by going to their profile page and clicking More > Connections/Places. This is a great way to find things you might want to follow, too.
Search for something specific:
Let Jive finish your thought with its predictive searching feature. When you start typing in the Spotlight Search box in the upper right corner, Jive returns the most closely related items found while searching everything in your community. You can pick from the list, or press Enter to see all matching results that you can sort to find what you need. You'll be able to refine your search to a specific space, project, group, or person. Direct messages and status updates are searchable. You can also choose a search time frame.
Browse for something more general:

Click a subject to browse: People (in the top navigation), Your Places (under your avatar), or Your Content (under your avatar). Once you get there, you can use the options in the left sidebar to narrow the results by how they relate to you. For example, did you author the content? Did you participate in the discussion? Or, do you want to look at all content in the community?

Filter what you're browsing:
Once you're browsing, you have even more sorting, filtering and keyword search options, including things like sort by date, filter by tags, or search specific text, which all help you find what you need as quickly as possible. For more on filtering, see Browse and Filter Content, People, and Places.
Bookmark items:
From any piece of content, you can create a bookmark by clicking Bookmark in the right-hand menu. Later, to see the content you've bookmarked, just click the Spotlight Search box at the top right. From there, click Bookmarks. If you don't see your bookmarked item listed there, click Show all my bookmarks. Be sure to read Using Bookmarks to learn how to bookmark like a pro.
See your History and Suggestions:
You can look at your Jive browsing history of Content, People, and Places by clicking the Spotlight Search box at the top right and then selecting History. If you don't see what you need from the list, click Show all my recently viewed content. Or, click Suggestions to see your frequently viewed items.
