The most common way to configure Jive for SharePoint is to add a SharePoint
Integration that all Jive users can access. You can do this by enabling the Everyone option
and allowing all SharePoint Connections.
To adjust default settings for all Jive users who can create Jive Places, go to
Default Settings, and select Enabled and click
Edit Settings. For example, from here you can change
the default settings for stream integration and allowed SharePoint connections
for these users.
In Allowed SharePoint Connections, select Allow all SharePoint
Connections so all users can access every SharePoint connection
set up in the Admin Console.
Under Integration Options of Places and Sites, select the default behavior
for the SharePoint integration. These defaults will be the only options for
users if you also select this option (and deslect other options) in the User
Choice Permissions and Remote Document Options sections. For more on integration
types, see SharePoint Integration Types.
- New Site - Storage Only
- New Site - Storage + Jive functionality
- Existing Site
Under User Choice Permissions, select how flexible user options should be when
creating or modifying Jive places.
- Select integration types that you want users to choose from when they
create a Jive Place and link it to a SharePoint site. Make sure you at least
select Existing Site if you want to link a Jive place
to an existing SharePoint site.
- Select Choose the parent site collection when creating a new
site to give users the ability to add a new SharePoint site
to an existing Site Collection of their choice.
Use Remote Documents Options to give users one or more activity types to
choose how remote document activity is published in the stream.
Select Make the stream setting for Remote Documents
configurable when creating a new Place to activate the
remote document options described in the next step.
Select one or more of the following types of activity for remote
documents. Users can select remote document activity for their Jive
Place when creating or editing it. For more on remote document activity
in streams, see Remote Document
- Hide in Activity
- Show limited info in Activity
- Show in Activity
Under User Mapping, select the mapping that makes sense for your environment.
- Map users by email address from profile field
- Map SharePoint's users email address to a field in Jive (defaults
selection is user's email address specified in Jive). This can be
changed to any string field in the Jive's user info Note: Custom
field (string type) could be added to the users profile in Jive for
the user mapping.
- Map users by user name from profile fields (Domain\Username)
- This option can be used to map by two fields in Jive, one that contains
the Domain and one that contains the username. For example, domain
and username/email and so on.
