|Using a Jive Community / Using Apps|
Jive Apps can contribute app actions, which are extension points throughout the Jive UI.
Apps can be used in other places beyond the Apps menu at the top of the screen. These additional app extension points are called app actions. An app action can appear in one of many different locations within the Jive UI: as a menu item in the Create menu (within the APPS section), in the sidebar when viewing a document (within the APP ACTIONS section), as a new tab in a group or project, when typing "!" while editing content. It is up to the Jive App developer exactly which of these extension are accessible and exactly what action occurs when you select this action.
