News!
News is the central place for you to see what's happening in the community. The News page features a variety of streams created for you by your community manager, designed to direct you to the content and places you need to know about. Read all about it here. If you have permission to create News streams, learn how to do that here .
Spotlight Search
The redesigned Spotlight Search is a great way to quickly find items using keywords, when you don't need a more detailed investigation. It automatically includes wildcards as you type parts of words. Check out the History and Suggestions tabs to pull up your viewing history or things you look at often.
Your View
Now you can manage your very own page (only visible to you) and personalize it with tiles to help you organize your world. Learn how to set up Your View here.
Place Pages
Place owners can add pages to a place in addition to the default Activity page, and configure the pages with tiles containing key information (static or dynamic). Read more about this here.
Follow a Tag
Follow a tag to easily stay up to date on all content containing the tag. To learn how to follow a tag, be sure to read Following a Tag.
Multiple Places Content Sharing
In the same way you can share content with people, you can now share content with one or more places to make it easier to find and reach a wider audience.
Role Badges
Find out people's jobs around your community using these helpful labels. A role badge next to a user's name indicates that user's role in the community, such as Champion, Expert, or Employee. To learn more, check out What Are Role Badges?
Email Unsubscribe Link
If you want to unsubscribe from email notifications without logging into the community first, you can! Note that your community manager will need to set this up so that you see the unsubscribe link in your emails.
Responsive Web Design
Take Jive anywhere! If you change your browser size -- for example, switch from your desktop computer to your mobile browser -- you'll see the same Jive interface fully optimized for whatever device you're using.
Translation Improvements
The Jive 8.0.5 release improves the i18n of Jive in many ways. If this is something you've been looking forward to, it's worth upgrading to 8.0.5 now.
