Content containers

Here you can find the types of containers in which you can publish content in the community.

Note: Externally-facing communities (those serving customers, partners, and vendors), do not have the Personal Content (Hidden) feature.

Your personal content

Your personal container is where you can store your documents and other content types that are hidden or limited to specific people are stored. Your personal tasks are also stored here.

To see your content that is limited to only you or specific people:

  1. Go to Your Avatar > Your Content > Authored > <Document type>.

    This opens your personal container where you can find the content items of different types and filter them.

  2. Select Filter by personal content to see content pieces available only to you.

A dark lock icon next to the item indicates it is limited to you; a light lock icon next to the item indicates it is limited to you and the other designated people.

You can find your personal tasks on your profile page or in the project. For more information, see Managing tasks.

Groups

Different types of groups have different content visibility permissions. For more information about the various options, see Types of groups.

To view the content of a group:

  • Go to the group and open the Content tab.

You can filter the content by type to view, for example, discussions or documents.

Spaces

Spaces have complex content visibility options that are set up by the owners of the space. Also, spaces can be configured to contain some content types. For example, you may not be able to create a discussion in Space A, but you can in Space B. You can see the allowed content types on the Content tab of the space.

  • Go to the space and click the Content tab.

You can filter the content by type to view, for example, discussions or documents.

Sub-spaces

By default, sub-spaces inherit all of the content visibility permissions of their containing parent space.

  • Go to the sub-space and click the Content tab.

You can filter the content by type to view, for example, discussions or documents.

Projects

Projects inherit all of the content visibility permissions of their containing parent space or sub-space.

  • Go to the project and click the Content tab.

You can filter the content by type to view, for example, discussions or documents.
