Content takes up the major part of Jive, so learning to create,
promote, and manage it effectively is a cornerstone of Jive collaboration.
You can create items of the types available in your community. You should choose a content type based on your collaborative goals.
Using content editor
When you create or edit content, such as writing and formatting text, creating tables, embedding images and videos, and inserting links, you use the content editor built into Jive.
Earning status points
When you create or respond to content in Jive, you earn status points in the community.
Awarding badges and points
You can award other community members a badge to recognize their contributions, and even give them some of your status points.
Sharing content with other places
To make using the community easier for people who tend to focus on certain groups, spaces, or projects, you can share your content with their place even if you initially post it in another place. When you share content with a place, it shows up in that place's activity stream. Anyone following the place where the content is shared receives a notification in the stream.
Who can see my content
In Jive, people post content in places. This means that all content (such as discussions, documents, and blog posts) are published in a containing place (space, sub-space, group, or project). All places have visibility permissions (set by the place owners) that determine who can see the content posted in that place.
Status update tips and tricks
Status updates let you interact with others in the community. You can also delete your own updates, see who liked them, see other people's updates, and several other activities.
You can use polls to get instant feedback on a question. A poll is a fast way to ask a multiple-choice question in the community.
Events allow you to schedule, discover, and RSVP to events from your Jive community or privately manage your own schedule. Events can be created in spaces, groups, projects, or your own personal container, like other content types.
Creating documents for yourself
You can create a Hidden document to keep it private. Later, you can change the visibility to include other people if you need to.
You can use the Save As Draft feature to quickly jot down and save your thoughts in documents or blog posts. Then, you can come back later to edit and publish your content. You can also collaborate with others on saved drafts before publishing them.
Use your profile to express who you are to your community. If you have something you want the community to know about you, add it to one of the cards that can be found here.
Using documents Jive is a powerful tool for creating and uploading documents, collaborating on them with others, and managing versions.
Working with shared office documents
As you make changes to a shared document on your computer, Jive for Office synchronizes the document with the version that's visible in the community and provides real-time notifications to users working in the same document.
Use blog posts to express ideas or opinions and get community feedback. If you've got something to say, you can write it in a blog.
Using visual media
You can make your Jive content more engaging by using images, collections, and videos. You can also apply these forms of visual media to your Jive place.
You can copy a document as a new document, discussion, or blog post.
You can use the Create a Copy feature to create templates for yourself or others to use.
Using Marking feature
You can turn a conversation into a real business decision or collaboration success story.
