Configuring display of Pulse messages

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

To ensure that users see relevant information about a Pulse message, such as an icon or the profile image of the users posting and replying to messages, customize the message display.

For example, you can configure the messages that your application posts automatically to display your company logo and a case ID as a title of the message.
  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.

  2. Expand the Process category, and then click Pulse Feed.

  3. Open a Pulse feed that you want to edit.

  4. In the Feed display settings, in the Icon list, select the type of icon that you want to display in the message:

    Choices Actions
    Display a user profile image
    1. In the Icon list, select User.

    2. In the User reference field, enter a property that references the user whose profile image you want to display

      To display the profile image of the user who posted the message, enter .pyUser.
    Display an icon that a system provides
    1. In the Icon list, select Icon class.

    2. Next to the Icon class field, click the Open the icon class picker icon.

    3. In the Icon class picker window, select an icon that you want to display next to the Pulse message.

    1. In the Icon list, select Image.

    2. Next to the Image reference field, click the Show Image Viewer icon.

      To view the different default logos that the system provides, enter Logo.
    4. Select the image.

    Only standard Pega Platform applications support adding images from the image catalog. Applications based on Cosmos React do not provide this option.
  5. In the Title list, select a display format for the title of the message:

    • To display the title as a value, in the Title list, select Property, and then in the Property reference field, enter a property that stores the value that you want to use.

      For example, to display a case label as a title, enter .pyLabel.

    • In a standard Pega Platformapplication, to display the title as a section, in the Title list, select Section, and then in the Section reference field, enter a property that references the section that you want to use.
    • In an application based on Cosmos React, to use more complex text for the title, for example a sentence, in the Title list, select Field value, and then in the Field value reference field, enter a property that references the field value that you want to use.
  6. In the Time field, enter the property that retrieves the time at which a user adds the message.

    Enter .pxUpdateDateTime.
  7. For a standard Pega Platform application, in the Message type field, select a display format for the message:

    • To display a message as plain text, select Message, and then in the Property reference, enter a custom property.
    • To display a message as a section, select Section, and then in the Section reference, enter a property that references a custom section.
  8. For an application based on Cosmos React, in the Message reference field, enter the name of a view that you want to use for displaying the messages.

    For more information about views in Cosmos React, see Configuring forms and views.
  9. Optional:

    To allow users to comment on a message, in the Comments section, select the Allow comments check box, and then, enter the custom property from the data page that uniquely identifies the feed item.

    Enter Application.pzInsKey.
    The Allow comments check box is available only for some Pega-delivered feed source types, such as pxMySpacesFeed, which displays Pulse messages from spaces in which a user is a member.
