Enabling users to post messages in the activity feed

Users can view an activity feed that aggregates their important Pulse messages. This feed is displayed in the Case Manager and Case Worker portals when users click the Pulse menu option. You can enable users to post messages in the activity feed in a specific context. For example, a user can make release announcements in the context of an application, which will be visible to all the users of the application.

  1. Include the pxFeed section within the section or harness in which you want to display the activity feed.
    Tip: You can also override the pyPulseWrapper section to add feed sources for the activity feed that users see when they click the Pulse menu option in the Case Manager and Case Worker portals. This section includes the pxFeed section by default.
  2. On the Design tab of the section or harness, click the pxFeed section.
  3. Click the Gear icon to open the Layout Properties panel.
  4. On the Parameters tab, in the Configure post settings section, select the Enable post check box.
  5. In the Context key field, enter a key value to define the context within which users can post messages in their activity feed. For example, enter Application.pxInsName for the application context.
  6. In the section that is displayed, select the message types that users can post.
  7. Optional: Update the description of a selected message type by doing the following actions:
    1. Click the Edit icon next to the message type.
    2. Update the description in the Feed name field.
    3. Click Done.
  8. Click Submit.
  9. Click Save.
