Using Tiles and External Stream Integrations

You can use tiles to display specific information that you want the visitors to see while creating a group, space, or a custom page. External stream integrations are available along with tiles on your group's Activity page. For more information, see Designing Places.

To know more about the different tiles that Jive offers, see What is a Tile? and Your View Tile Reference. External stream integrations stream information from external systems.

Using tiles and stream integrations while designing the Group's Activity page:

  1. Create a new Group or go to your Group's Activity page and click the gear icon > Edit activity page. For more information, see Designing Places.
    Note: While creating a new group, the default tiles that appear as selected in the layout are based on the predefined or custom template you choose.
  2. Click Add a tile or Add external stream integration.

    Tip: You can add a tile above the external stream integrations and on the right-hand side under any default tiles.
  3. Select the tile or external stream integration that you want to add.
    Note: While adding tiles, the list of tiles that appears for selection is different for wide and narrow columns respectively. Once added, these tiles can be moved vertically within the same column or removed within the layout as required.
    Note: External Stream Integrations can only be added in the wider column.
  4. Click Save.

To configure a tile or stream integration:

Click the gear icon at the top right of the tile, make any changes, then click Apply.

When you're done making changes, remember to click Save at the bottom of the page.

Attention: Tiles without an active gear icon are automatically populated and don't need configuration, so you won't see a gear icon for them.
