A quick introduction to News and Activity.
News is where you keep up to date with what is happening in your organization. News items will appear chronologically as a series of tiles across this view. New, unread items will be indicated by a corner red dot while older unread items are marked by a corner grey dot.
Click on any tile to see its content, add a “Like”, or post a Comment.
News items include:
- Photo Albums (with downloadable photos)
- And more, depending on the needs of your organization.
Some News items will be published to everyone in your organization. Others might be targeted to a specific location or team that you are a member of. Everything you see should be relevant to you.

On the left side of the News view is Activity, a feed designed to capture the real-time happenings of your organization.
If enabled, in Activity you can:
- Post an Update
- Thank someone with a Shout-Out
- Share an image
- Celebrate a milestone
