Overview

The Activity Stream panel is designed to give users access to collaborative functions and information related to a piece of content they are currently viewing. This panel can be accessed on the Browse page when exploring Reports, Dashboards, Storyboards, and Discussion Streams. You can also view the panel when viewing an individual Report, Dashboard, or Storyboard page.

 

Finding the Activity Stream

The Activity Stream can be accessed via two methods, depending on the type of page you are on at the time.

PageActivity Stream Access

Content Page

This includes Report, Dashboard, and Storyboard pages.

Comment Button


The comment button was previously used to access the collaboration panel on a piece of content, allowing you to read and make comments of your own. Now it opens the Activity Stream panel on the right hand side of the screen, which contains the comment functionality, as well as a range of other items.

Browse Page

This is when you are exploring various pieces of content in the system.

This includes Reports, Dashboard Tabs, Storyboards, and Discussion Streams.

Information Button


When on the browse page you can now select a single piece of content (single mouse click to highlight the item blue), then click on the Information icon to open the Activity Stream panel on the right hand side of the screen.

 

Sections

Then panel itself is made up of three main parts;

 

 

Activity

This displays all recent activity related to the content you've selected (in the Browse page) or are currently viewing. This includes;

    • Comments
    • Edits
    • Shares

If you are viewing a Dashboard that contains Sub Tabs, you have the option of viewing the activity for all sub tabs on the current tab, but by default you just see activity for the current sub tab. A similar function is available for Storyboards - by default you will only see the activity for the current slide, but the stream filters can be adjusted to view activity for all slides in the current storyboard.
