Live Feed - View Update/Posting

When someone posts an update that is visible to you, it appears on your Live Feed page. The information that is displayed varies depending on the type of update and what is included in the update.

Which types of updates appear in the feed is dependent upon the preferences set by the system administrator. The following types of updates may appear in your Live Feed:

  • User Update - User updates are made manually by a user. These updates can include text, a URL, files, and videos. See Live Feed - View Update - User Update.
  • Activity Update - Activity updates are system generated updates that are triggered by a user's actions within the system. For example, if a user completes a training item, this may trigger an activity update. Activity updates can be configured by the system administrator. See Live Feed - View Update - Activity Update.
  • Broadcast Update - Broadcast updates are made manually by a user, similar to a user update. However, broadcast updates are visible to the entire organization except self-registered users. Broadcast updates appear at the top of the Live Feed at all times and can only be made by users with the appropriate permissions. See Live Feed - View Update - Broadcast Update.

View Comments

When users add comments to a post, the comments appear below the original post in reverse chronological order with the most recent comments displayed at the bottom. A timestamp is displayed with each comment to indicate when the comment was made. The timestamp is always displayed in the time zone of the user who is viewing the post.

If a posting has more than one reply at its root level, then a Show more comments link is displayed with the number of additional comments that are available. Select the link to view up to 10 of the most recent replies. If 10 comments are displayed and there are additional comments available, then a View full posting link is displayed. Select the link to view the Posting Details page in a new tab where all of the posting replies are visible.
