Jive includes a
powerful "genius" feature that analyzes your business relationships, expertise,
and areas of interest based on your behavior in the community. It then uses that
data to recommend relevant content, people, and places that you have not yet
seen in the community. There are several places in the interface where you see
your recommendations, but a quick way to see them is to navigate to People (in
the main navigation menu) or to Your Places or Your Content (from the menu under
your avatar). Then click Recommended in the left sidebar.
For more information about using recommendations, see Using your recommendations.
Search in your language
Searches are performed across all supported languages of the
Jive platform. When you search for something, however, the search engine first
searches for results that match the language you have set in your Preferences on
your profile page (click on your avatar and go to Preferences). If you do not have a
language set there, the search engine uses the locale setting of your browser.
