To customize a space, group, or project with a preconfigured set of content options
designed for specific collaboration goals, use your Activity page as the landing page and then
apply and configure a Place Template.
An Activity page shows a real-time activity stream of updates happening in the place, such as
status updates and replies to content. Place templates are the starting point for setting up
an Activity page: each template contains an activity stream, plus a configurable group of
tiles that reflect typical collaboration goals. When you edit an existing place, create a
group, start a project, or (if you have permission) create a new space, you'll choose from a
list of pre-designed Place Templates. Just quickly set up a few key tiles to start
collaborating in reality-tested environments such as:
An Event Planning place for organizing the material for an upcoming event
A Vendor Collaboration place for partnering with external talent
A private Pre-Hire Collaboration place for discussing potential job candidates
When you use a place template, you can add and remove any of the tiles and move them around
within the layout. Tiles are visual building blocks of information. They may dynamically pull
data either from around your Jive installation or from a third-party service, or they may be
configured with information you've hand-selected.
Assigning a Place Template
When you assign a Place Template to an existing project, space, or group, you get a preconfigured Activity page that contains the tiles and layout included in the template.
Creating a New Place Template
You can create a new place template based on a currently configured place using the settings under Manage > Save as new template. Only edited templates have the option of being saved as new ones, and pages are not saved with the new template.
Adding a Custom Page to a Place
Place owners can add their own custom pages to a place to allow more flexibility in designing places for specific needs. For example, you might add a Product Schedule page that shows your upcoming shipping dates and product owners.
