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 in the end user documentation. If you have permission to create News
streams, learn how to do that
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.
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 in the end user documentation.
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.
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 enable this, check out Adding User Groups.
Email Unsubscribe Link
If you want to unsubscribe from email notifications without logging into the community first, you can!
To set this up for your users, read this handy help topic.
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.
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.
Custom Mobile Landing Page
Create a custom
community landing page for users accessing the full community from a mobile device. This mobile-friendly
home page, which uses tiles rather than widgets, works with the new responsive web design. Jive automatically switches to this display when users access the home page using a
small screen or a narrow browser width.
To ensure key policies and documents are always listed in search results, you can now associate content items
with search keywords and phrases. Promoted results are called out visually and ranked in the order you specify. To read more about it, see Promoting Content Search Results.
Community Manager Reports Improvements (Cloud Service)
Use the Community Health Report to track changes in user registrations, activity, and
question resolution over time. The Successful Search Queries report identifies frequent
searches in your community that result in a click through.
