Using the Activity Feed

Overview
Within a content and initiative details pages the activity feed enables tracking of workflow related activity and self-initiated conversations regarding content asset workflow. Activity feed allows Kapost to be the single source location for content workflow collaboration. Activity feed uses @mention to send a message directly to another Kapost member. Messages you create can be deleted from the activity feed.

From the Kapost dashboard, you can view the activity feed that aggregates all activity feed entries from within Kapost. An icon representing the content asset type being discussed appears to the left of the activity feed comment. Comments created from the dashboard activity feed can be seen by all Kapost members from the dashboard view.

Deleting Comments In the Dashboard or Content Asset Activity Feed

Only the comment creator has the ability to delete their comment instance-wide. In other words, the comment creator can delete their comments and they will not be visible to any other users in Kapost. 

However, any individual user can tailor the activity feed that they see by deleting individual comments. If you delete a comment made by another user, it is only removed from your view. Other users are still able to see the comment.

Use the X icon to delete.


Add a Comment in a Content Asset Activity Feed
The activity feed is always active and ready for an entry. Comments can be typed directly into the activity feed. Comments can also be directed to a team member using the xx icon. Selecting the xx icon will enter an @ symbol into the comment box. The @ symbol combined with a Kapost member name directs the activity feed comment to the designated member. The xx icon can be bypassed by directly typing an @ symbol into the comment box. The combination of the @ symbol and a member name is referred to as @mentioning.

@mentioning a Kapost team member will generate an e-mail notification to that person. The member can then click on the link in the e-mail to respond to the message in Kapost or they can answer the e-mail. Either of the actions will be tracked in activity feed.
