The Activity Stream is a single-point for employees to get updates on projects and workgroups, carry on discussions with colleagues, view comments, receive documents and files, and manage or create new tasks, etc. The Activity Stream, which is available on the Intranet home page and in each workgroup, displays only those updates and discussion threads that a user is involved in (or has access to).
The Activity Stream is the center point of the Social Intranet template interface. And one of the major innovations is viewing by category: "All", "Work", "Bookmarks", "My Activity". This allows you to filter the stream quickly and select exactly what you need from any number of events in the stream. You can choose not to show various types of messages in the activity stream, or, conversely, choose to receive notifications by internal message or email for various types of updates. Bookmarking helps you keep important items close at hand, as well.
External information from sources such as RSS or other enterprise software can be displayed in the Activity Stream by means of the open API (REST, SOAP).
