Creating a Stream
In order to start collaborating in a team space, you will need to create a Discussion Stream. Complete the following steps:
Locating a Stream
In order to contribute to a discussion stream you will need to locate and join it. To locate a stream, follow these steps:
Joining a Stream
Once you have located a stream you will need to join it in order to contribute. If the stream is public, you can either join by locating the stream itself or by invitation from another user. If, however, the stream is private you will require an invitation in order to join it.
Follow these steps to join a stream:
Leaving a Stream
When you no longer belong to a team involved in a stream, or a stream is not longer required, you can leave it. Follow these steps to leave a stream:

Discussion Streams can contain posts (comments), tasks, and decision threads. Each of these types of communication are designed to aid in the collaborative efforts of users and teams, and are able to contain a range of different types of content and attachments.

Sometimes users may need to be removed from a discussion thread, and prevented from returning. An administrator can block a user by following these steps:
The timeline feed displays a list of activity that has taken place within the Discussion Stream. This can include new threads, responses to posts, and task activity. This behaves the same way as a user's timeline feed.
The lists layout allows you to group all content within a stream into user-defined lists. This allows you to organise content by your own groupings rather than sorting by date.
The task management layout allows you to do just that; manage the tasks associated with the discussion stream.
