Collaboration is your main activity in Jive. When you look
around your community and discover documents and conversations, you'll want to take
advantage of the opportunity to comment and collaborate. The following guidelines
can help you get started with participating:
Commenting is as simple as clicking Add a Comment or
Reply at the bottom of a document, blog post, question,
or discussion. You can reply to an individual message in a thread or to the original
post. Everyone reading the thread will see your response.
Documents have owners who control whether you can change the content of the
document, comment on it, or even see it. You may be able to see documents that you
don't have permission to comment on or participate in. If you think you should be able
to comment on a document and you can't, contact the author and ask for permission.
If you can edit a document, you'll see Edit near the Actions
A comment or reply may have a badge showing Decision, Action Item, or Success. These badges
help you avoid endless discussion and quickly determine the state or outcome of the
conversation. To learn more about this feature, be sure to read Using the Marking Feature.
Comments and replies may also be Liked or marked Helpful. These are tallied for
reporting activity in places, or the entire community.
A badge shows others how helpful someone has been to you. To give someone a
badge, just go to their profile page and click Actions > Give Badge.
