    Where has my Connections Stream gone?

    Simon

      I have always followed a variety of topics using the Connection Stream. This used to be available by clicking on my name in the Community top-bar and from their I could navigate to my Connections Stream. It would show content from all the areas I follow in chronological order - very useful. However, today when I logged on, the menu under my 'name' looks different and I can't find my Connection Stream anywhere.

       

      Has something changed? Can anyone tell me how to find that stream again?

       

      UPDATE: It looks like this has been renamed from Activity to News. I found it by searching my history for a link to 'activity' which was re-directed to 'news'. So it can be found by typing "https://communities.mentor.com/news". However, I can't navigate here because I can't find 'News' on any menus.

       

      Thanks,

      Simon

          I see what you mean, Simon. I hadn't noticed this until now. What most likely has happened is that Jive (our communities platform provider) has rolled out some quarterly updates that have affected the community stream. Let me look into it further and get back to you. In the meantime, by my name in the upper right is an orange button with an "@" symbol and the # of items in my  Jive inbox I haven't read. If you click on this button, does it provide you with your Connection Stream items? Within your inbox, if you click on an item, it opens it on the lower part of the page and you can respond from there (as I am doing with your post).

           

          Will get back to you with more info.

            Hi,

            Unfortunately, my Connections Stream doesn't appear in my Inbox, so this doesn't work.

            The only way I have found to get there is to manually type the URL I mentioned above (ie "https://communities.mentor.com/news")

             

            The Jive documentation seems to suggest that you can get to 'News' from your home page. But I can't find that either.

              Community_Admin Is there any chance that the Community interface can be changed to provide a link to 'News' from the main menu bar?

              It seems that this is now the preferred mechanism for the Jive Community software and it would be very useful.

              Thanks,
