The Jostle® platform is organized into primary views that appear on the left sidebar of the user interface. Some of these views can be turned on/off for your entire organization. This can be done at any time, but early on it's useful to think through how you want to use the overall platform.
Views are turned on/off in Administration settings which can be found via the Admin Settings link in the lower left corner of the Jostle interface (next to the gear icon) and is only accessible by Jostle System Administrators. Click on Admin Settings and then go to Platform > Enabled/Disabled Features.
Best practice is to turn all views on, but the following views can be turned on/off as needed, for example if you don't want to launch your complete intranet all at once:
NOTE—Teams and People must be left on.
There are some partial options for some of the views:
- In News you can remove Activity (the left side of News, which appears as its own view on Mobile). We do not recommend this, even for very large organizations.*
- In Discussions, you can either turn off Org-wide Discussions, or enable only a specific list of users to start Org-wide Discussions.*
- In Teams, you can hide the Main Organization Chart.
