Creating photo albums

You can create a photo album and use it to store your photos comfortably.

Photo albums can be created in any type of place or user personal container.

Photo albums can be created from the Pencil icon menu, the Browse Photo Albums page, the Recent Photos widget, the Your Photo Albums page, or the Actions menu of any Jive place. Photo albums require a name and optionally support a description, categories, and tags.

You can restrict contributors to a single user, all users, or a specific list of users. This restricts who can post new photos to the album, manage existing photos, and manage the album itself.

To create a photo album:

  1. Select Pencil icon > Photo album.
  2. In Subject, enter an album title.
  3. In the text box, add a description of the album.
  4. Choose the location in the community where you want to put your idea.
    For example, you could put it in a space, group, or related project. Note that some places might not have the photo album feature enabled.
  5. Under Tags, specify the tags to make searching for the album easier.
  6. Under Categories, apply categories to make searching and keeping track of the album easier.
  7. If required, under Advanced Options, restrict authors who can publish photos to the album as follows:
    • To allow all registered users to contribute, clear the Restrict authors check box.
    • If you want to be the only one to edit the album, select the Restrict authors check box, and then select Only I can edit this photo album.
    • If you want only some users to edit the album, select the Restrict authors check box, select Allow specific people to edit this photo album, then select one or more users to be added as contributors.
    For more information, see Managing album contributors.
  8. Click Publish.

A new empty photo album is added to the selected place.
