Creating custom streams

You can create your own customized streams if available in your community.

To create a custom stream:

  1. On the News or Home page, click the plus sign to the right of the streams.
    You can see a two-column layout with suggested stream content on the right.
  2. In Stream name, enter a name for this stream, for example, Water Cooler, New Products, or Team Activity.
  3. Drag and drop items from the Suggested People, Places, and Tags in the right column to the left column, or use the Search box to find specific items you want to follow in this stream. For more information about how to find and follow useful things, see Tips for finding things to follow or Following tags.
  4. If you want to receive a notification every time there is a new item in this stream, select Mobile or Email (or both) under Updates at the top of the page.
    • The option to change your email notifications preferences may be unavailable in your community. For more information, see Choosing between email and stream notifications.
    • We strongly recommend leaving Email cleared, which is the default; otherwise, your email notifications could get overwhelming pretty quickly.
    • Mobile notifications go to the Jive Mobile or Jive Daily app if you have it installed on your Android or iOS device. If you don't have one of these apps, mobile notifications don't have any effect.
  5. To save this new stream, click Done.
You can add to, edit, or delete this stream any time you want. For more information, see Updating custom streams and Editing custom streams.
