Inbox shows replies, @mentions, messages, Latest Acclaim, shares, and any activity you
Your Inbox shows the activity that's most you-centric — the
information that's sent directly to you and has your name on it. This automatically includes
@mentions, replies to discussions you're participating in, content people share with you, your
latest acclaim, new follower notifications, and direct messages.

Depending on your preferences, everything that flows into your Inbox may result in email
notifications. If available in your community, you can adjust what's emailed to you. For more
information, see Customizing notifications.
Use the following tips and tricks in working with your Inbox:
You can follow content items in your Inbox even
if you haven't yet or don't want to participate directly.
All updates and replies to that item now flow into your Inbox. For more information about
streams, see Overview of streams.
You can use the Filter menu in Inbox to sort the view to @mentions,
messages, notifications, or shares.
You can filter Inbox by participant by entering a user name in the box. You can see only
the items that include this person as a participant.
Manage your unread communications and follow-ups by using the blue dot next to messages
you haven't read yet and clicking Unread Only to see only the
messages marked with the blue dot.
When you click the Split View icon in the top right of the Inbox
stream and then select a message, you can see the content of the message in the lower pane
and the list of messages in the upper pane.
Get rid of activity on any item that no longer interests you by clicking
Hide new activity in the lower pane of the split-pane view. The
current activity stays in your Inbox, but you'll see no more update alerts for that item.
For more information about notifications, see Customizing notifications.
Note that if you are following a space in Inbox, you are not also following its subspaces
unless you separately decide to follow them in Inbox.
