Here's how to create a News stream for all registered users to see.
Users see News streams listed across the top of the news page.
You must have Manage News Streams or Manage Community permissions to create, modify, or delete
For a detailed example of how you might create News streams, be sure to read
this article in the Jive Community. You must be a registered
community user to see this content.
To create a News stream for everyone in the community:
Go to the Home page and click next to News to create a new
Restriction: You'll only be able to see this icon if you are a community manager or have
Manage News Streams permissions.
Give the new stream a title, for example, "Executive News" or "CEO Blog." This is the
stream name users will see on the News page.
Under Places/Blogs, enter or select the place or blog you want the
stream to pull content from.
Tip: If you see both a place and the place's blog listed, keep in mind that selecting
the blog would post less content in the stream. In other words, selecting a place means
any new content created there will show up in the stream. Selecting the blog
means only blog posts will show up.
Under Audience, decide whether you want guest users (users who
have not registered) to be able to see the stream. This is only relevant if your community
is visible to unregistered users.
Under Notify Users, select whether you want the stream's users to
receive email or mobile notifications every time new content is posted in the place or
Tip: Generally speaking, we recommend setting this to Off.
However, you'll likely want to enable notifications on the most important content that
your users cannot miss. Just keep in mind that if notifications get noisy, users may
stop reading the content.
Click Save, then Publish Layout.
You can create up to ten news streams, which will display on the News page in the order
listed. You can reorder the list by dragging a stream to a new position.
