|Using a Jive Community / Using Apps|
You can use Jive Apps to accomplish focused tasks, integrate with other systems, or provide new functionality to your Jive experience.
Jive Apps are lightweight applications that are hosted by Jive or a third-party, which means you don't have to download anything to your computer and you are always looking at the latest version. When you install an app in Jive, you connect to it and enable it to access information that helps you work more effectively.
You can find Jive Apps when you click Apps at the top of your screen, where they'll always be when you're logged into the community. Some apps can bring in information from outside of your community, while others manage information within the community itself. You can also access some Jive Apps through extension points throughout the UI. These extension points are known as app actions. For instance, some apps are accessible from a menu item in the right sidebar when viewing content and some apps are accessible from the create menu.
Contact your Community Manager for acquiring additional Jive Apps.
