How to use Activity feed module

Activity feed is a module that keeps you informed about today's activities on selected projects. An activity is considered anything that happens inside:

  • Tasks
  • News
  • Documents
  • Files
  • Wiki edits
  • Messages
  • CRM cases

Activity feed shows activities made by anybody. You can select which projects and types of activities you are interested in. The necessary condition is that you must be a member of the project the activities of which you want to track. You can add Activity feed module on your easy pages such an personal homepage and project overview. Just click on "Personalize this page" button down the page and select the module from the list as shown on the picture.

Now, after you selected the module to add, you have to set it up. The settings is really easy and quick as it only includes a few options:

  • Feed count - the number of feeds displayed (only activity from the current day is listed)
  • All activity - displays all activities on all projects you are a member of
  • Selected projects and activities - displays selected projects and selected types of activities you want to track (see picture below)
  • All projects with selected activities - displays selected types of activities on all projects you are a member of
  • Selected projects with all activities - displays all activities on selected projects you want to track

Now, if everything is set, just click on "Save page and go back" green button. When you go back to your personal homepage or project overview you can find the added module there. It might look like this.

In the upper part of the module you find tabs with the types of activities so you can easily switch between them without the need to change the settings. If you need to change the settings, just click on the pencil icon in the upper right corner. The cross icon next to it will collapse the module so you can hide it when you don't need to see any activities.

 

Corner situations

Activity feed normally shows the updates you have not seen. But there are cases when updates that you have seen also appear in Activity feed. Every time someone updates the task, it is marked as unseen for you and thereby also the feed activity history includes this task.
