News is the central place for you to see what's happening in the community.
The News page features a variety of streams created for you by your community manager,
designed to direct you to content, people, and places that pertain directly to you. You'll
also see your Following stream, any custom streams you have created, and the All Activity
streams, which show recent activity from all over the community that you have permission to
see. You can see these streams individually by clicking the link to a stream in the top
navigation and scrolling down the page, or you can use the main News view to overview the
latest items in each stream in a combined block view. Each block has a header that shows what
stream the item came from.
Note: The News page responds to browser width by
adjusting to fit all your streams, so your top navigation may differ slightly from browser
to browser or from screen shots in this Help. For example, you may see your News
subscription streams listed individually or collapsed into a drop-down menu.
You can pin any of the streams listed on your News page to
either the News or Home button, depending on how your community manager has set up the main navigation
ribbon in your community. Just click the pin
icon from the desired stream's page. Now when you click Home or News from anywhere in the application,
you'll be taken right to the page you pinned.
The News page also features a variety of tiles to help you find important people, places, and
content quickly. The Trending Content and Trending People tiles are included by
default, but may be removed by your community manager.
Here's an overview of what you'll see on the News page. For a quick visual tour of the News interface, click here.
- News (top-level view)
- The News view aggregates and displays content posted in your News and Following
streams. However, unlike your streams, the News page does not show content updates and
comments in a stream view. Content that gets updated or interacted with is not bumped to
the top of the News view. The News view shows only new things.
Content is pulled
in and displayed in the News view in the order in which your streams are displayed to
the right of News. Duplicated content is removed if it's already being pulled in from a
higher-order stream. Content you've read (by clicking-through to it either from your
desktop or a mobile version of Jive) will stay in News for 2 days before going away.
Content you haven't yet read will stay for 10 days. Because the News streams are
designed just for you, you won't see the same content pulled into the News view that
others will see.
- News streams
- These are the streams you see listed when you expand the menu under News. These
streams are created and managed by your community manager or people with Manage News
Streams permissions. Because these streams are designed just for you, you may not see the
same News streams or the same content in them that others see. To learn more, be sure to
read What Are News Streams?
- All Activity: Top & Trending stream
- Check out this stream to get a feel for what's happening right now.
- All Activity: Most Recent stream
- This stream shows you all community updates that you have permission to see as
they are posted in real time. Scrolling through this stream can be useful for adding new
people and content to your Following or custom streams.
- When you start following people, places, and content items, they are
automatically added to this stream. Use this stream if you just want to
check in throughout the day but not create a lot of custom streams. This
stream is included for you by default, and you can add to or delete content,
people, and places from it.
- Your custom streams
- If you've created any custom streams, you'll see those listed to the right of Following.
Custom streams can be a great way to keep up with the content, people, and
places that matter most to you in your community. Here are some
examples of custom streams you might want to create for yourself.
