A stream shows you real-time updates of activity as people interact with content,
people, and places in the community.
You'll see streams
on the News page and
on the Activity page of any place. Streams are updated when someone creates a document, replies to a blog
post, posts a status update, and so on.
Here are some examples of activities that trigger new stream items
for people, places, and content that you're following in a stream:
Content: someone modifies the content item (for example edits, comments on, or
replies to it).
People: someone posts a status update, creates a content item, or comments on a
Places: someone updates content in the place (for example publishes a new
document, edits a blog post, shares content with a place, or comments on a
document that lives in the place).
Tags: someone creates or modifies an item with a tag you're following in the
stream, or adds the tag to a content item.
Here are some ways you can
track new activity in your streams:
When there is new activity in your streams, such as likes, comments, edits, or new content, you'll see an indicator dot (when enabled in your communituy) next to the stream name on your News
(Home) page. If you hover over
the indicator, you'll see a count of new activity for that stream since you last viewed it.
When you select a stream, you are viewing all activity, with the Most Recent content listed first. If you want to view only the
content you are following in that stream, you can select Top & Trending, and activity will
be sorted by the most active content since you last viewed the stream.
As you are scrolling through your stream, you'll see the End of New Updates line, so you'll know when you've seen
all the new activity for that stream. Continue scrolling and you'll see the
End of Previous Updates line
that shows you the updates from last time you checked.
