To customize a space, group, or project with a preconfigured set of content options
designed for specific collaboration goals, select an Activity page as the landing page and then
apply and configure a Place Template.
An Activity page shows a real-time activity stream of updates happening in the place, such as
status updates and replies to content. Place templates are the starting point for setting up
an Activity page: each template contains an activity stream, plus a configurable group of
tiles that reflect typical collaboration goals. When you edit an existing place, create a
group, start a project, or (if you have permission) create a new space, you'll choose from a
list of pre-designed Place Templates. Just quickly set up a few key tiles to start
collaborating in reality-tested environments such as:
A Deal Room for building out a sales opportunity with your team
A Vendor Collaboration place for partnering with external talent
A private Pre-Hire Collaboration place for discussing potential job candidates
When you use a place template you can add and remove any of the tiles and move them around within the
layout. Tiles are visual building blocks of information. They may dynamically pull data either
from around your Jive installation or from a third-party service, or they may be configured with
information you've hand-selected.
Assigning a Place Template
When you assign a Place Template to an existing project, space, or group, you get a preconfigured Activity page that contains the tiles and layout included in the template.
Creating a New Place Template
You can create a new place template based on a currently configured place using the settings under Manage > Save as new template. Only edited templates have the option of being saved as new ones.
Place Template Reference
Each Place Template contains a unique selection of tiles customized for a specific collaborative activity, such as Sales or IT.
