Using bookmarks

Bookmarks help you keep track of your favorite content over long periods of time. You can bookmark content inside or outside of your community.

You can bookmark any content in the community, and sites outside of the community. When you want to look at that content again later, you can go to it quickly by clicking in the search box at the top of any page and selecting Bookmarked. You can see a list of your recent bookmarks. Clicking Show all bookmarks at the bottom of the list lets you toggle between a complete list of Your bookmarks and All, which shows public bookmarks from everyone in the community.

You won't see bookmarks created for content that you can't access, such as documents in a private group.

Note: To enable external bookmarks, you need to file a support ticket with Support. For more information, see Getting started with the new Jive Support Portal on Worx.

Bookmarking content inside your community

To bookmark content stored inside your community:

  • Go to the content item, and then click Bookmark in the right menu.

Created bookmarks have corresponding titles to easily be located for later use.

Bookmarking sites outside of your community (external bookmarks)

To bookmark sites outside of your community, you need to add the bookmarklet tool to your web browser. The bookmarklet tool allows you to bookmark external sites and bring them inside your community.

To install the bookmarklet tool:

  1. Click Spotlight search, and then select Bookmarked > Show all bookmarks > Click to install in the left pane.
  2. Drag the Add Site button onto your browser's toolbar.

To bookmark a site outside the community:

  • Click Add site to community in your browser's toolbar and then add your notes and tags.

You can use the bookmarklet link to bookmark any content as you browse the Web. In other words, you don't need to be using Jive to save and share bookmarks in your Jive community.

You might also be interested in learning about Jive Anywhere, which allows you to socialize things in your Jive community that you've found on the Web or even in other applications. Your community may not include this additional module by default. For more information, see the Jive Anywhere Help.
