Here is an overview of Jive's search and browse features. And remember, as you interact
in the community, Jive will keep track of your interests and connections and
recommend relevant content, people, and places.
Search for something specific using keywords in the Spotlight Search:
To see your Jive browsing history, click in the search field at the top right, and then select
History. To see your recently viewed items, click
Show all my recently viewed content.
Search for something within a Place:
If you know something is saved in a specific place, you can limit your spotlight
search to just that place. First, go to the place. Then, type your keyword into
the search box and select Show: Only for [this
Search for someone's content:
If you know someone authored a document or participated in a discussion but you
can't remember any keywords from the discussion, go to the person's profile and
open Content. From there, browse through their recent content
creations, discussion comments, and so on, to find what you're looking for.
Find places by categories
Click your avatar and then Your Places > Filter by Category, and then pull down
the All menu to select a predefined place category. (This will work only if your
community manager set up place categories.)
Browse and filter Content, People, and Places:
Click People in the top site navigation bar, or in the menu
under your avatar, click Your Content or
Your Places. Once you get there, use the left
navigation to refine the results by how they relate to you. For more on
filtering, see Browse and Filter People, Places, and Content.
Bookmark useful content and look at your Bookmarks:
You can bookmark any piece of content and then look at your most recent
bookmarks later by clicking the Spotlight Search box at the top right and then
Bookmarks. To browse through all of your bookmarks, click
Show all my bookmarks. From there, you can see the
bookmarks of others by clicking
All in the left sidebar.
Tag content to make it easier to find later:
You can assign tags that act as keywords to existing or new content to describe it
for people who might search for it later. You can even assign tags to a status
update. To learn more about tagging, see Using Tags.
Use your Recommendations:
Jive includes a
powerful "genius" feature that analyzes your business relationships, expertise,
and areas of interest based on your behavior in the community. It then uses that
data to recommend relevant content, people, and places that you have not yet
seen in the community. There are several places in the interface where you see
your recommendations, but a quick way to see them is to navigate to People (in
the top navigation) or to Your Places or Your Content (from the menu under your
avatar). Then click Recommended in the left sidebar. To
learn more about using recommendations, see Using Your
Search in your language
Searches are performed across all supported languages of the Jive platform. When you
search for something, however, the search engine first searches for results that
match the language you have set in your Preferences on your profile page (click on
your avatar and go to Preferences). If you do not have a language set there, the
search engine will use the locale setting of your browser.
