Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Provide a collaboration tool for users of your application by adding the Pulse gadget to your application. By posting, viewing, and commenting on messages, users can work together to resolve cases faster.

Users that post Pulse messages can make their posts more meaningful by adding attachments, including links, or by formatting the text.

Create feed sources that you can add to activity feeds. For more information, see Creating feed sources for activity feeds.

  • Enabling users to post messages in the activity feed

    Enable users to post messages in an activity feed for a specific context. For example, a user can make release announcements in the context of an application for all the application users to see.

  • Creating feed sources for activity feeds

    Inform users about events that are relevant to them by creating feed sources for messages from internal or external data sources. After you create a feed source, you can include it in a user activity feed.

  • Configuring default feed sources

    Ensure that users see only relevant Pulse posts by filtering feed sources that display Pulse messages by default.

  • Configuring Pulse email notifications

    In Pulse, you can choose to receive emails when another user references you, likes your messages, posts on your profile, posts comments on a conversation in which you are involved, or posts a comment on a case that you are following, provided that your application is configured to send emails.

  • Collaborating with users by using spaces

    By creating spaces, you gather users that are professionally connected within a single digital community, so that they can collaborate on specific areas of interest. When you restricting the discussion of certain topics to the users of a space, you can avoid broadcasting irrelevant messages to all users in your application. After joining a space, you can communicate with the members of the space by using Pulse.
