Posting a message in Pulse


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Post a message in Pulse to share information, for example, the status of a case, or to ask a question in a conversation thread. By posting your message in the correct context, you control who can receive notifications, view your messages, and post replies.

For example, users who are preparing a presentation for a customer can exchange ideas in a Pulse conversation, which helps keep the discussion within the context of a single user story.

The option to post a task in Pulse is available only in the global Pulse feed and spaces. To enable posting a task in a particular context, configure the feed gadget. For more information, see Enabling users to post messages in the activity feed.
