Activity management (for News Editors)

 

**PLEASE NOTE**

Due to recent changes with Twitter/X, its integration with Jostle's Activity feed is no longer supported.

 

Introduction

Activity is the feed that runs down the left side of News. It's where users can post Updates to capture the moment-to-moment happenings in your organization or post Shout-Outs to recognize their peers.

News Editors are able to manage Activity, which includes access to the following features:

 

Exporting your Activity feed

News Editors (and System Administrators) can export the Activity feed content into a .csv file for analysis and record keeping. Here's how:

1. Click on the action menu (three dots) at the top of Activity. 

2. Select Export Activity feed

3. Input your date range and click Export. This will download a .csv file with full details of all Status Updates and Shout-Outs.

Setting an Activity allow list

By default, everyone in an organization can post to Activity. However, as a News Editor you can set it so only certain people have this ability. This can be a useful tool if you have a large organization and want to make sure that important information posted in Activity doesn't get quickly buried due to the sheer number of people who can add their own posts or replies to the feed. 

To set an Activity allow list

1. Click on the action menu (three dots) at the top of the Activity feed.

2. Select "Set who can post Updates".

3. On the modal that appears, select "Custom Group".

4. Then use the List Selector to add individuals to your allow list and click Save when you're done.

    Is it possible to remove the activity feed entirely?

    We still have a longer term plan to add a Instagram integration, but this IFTTT approach seems to be working well, so we have reduced the priority of that.

    Note that you could create a Twitter account who's sole purpose is to relay Instagram for you. Not elegant, but it would work.

    Yes, System Admins can turn Activity off at Administrative Settings > Platform > Enabled/Disabled Features.

    Is this option in place yet?  I do not have the gear symbol above my activity feed to add a twitter account.

    This is great! 

    Is there a way of only sharing Instagram posts? As in not alongside twitter posts?

    This is now out of beta and all NEWS Editors should see the gear.
