Latest Updates: Keeping up with your network

View updates from people and communities that you follow, with the most recent updates first.

With the Latest Updates tab of your HCL Connections home page, you can keep up with the actions and status updates of people you're connected to or follow, and who are in communities you're a member of or follow.

Changing your focus

You might want to see different kinds of updates at different times. Here are some ways to manage your update stream:

  • Switch the type of updates that you see. Click the down arrow next to the filter-stream option (I'm Following by default) and select a view from the list of filters:

    Tip: The Saved option aggregates the updates in which you clicked Save this so that you can find them later.

  • Filter your view further to see only the updates from a particular app or tag. Click the Filter content icon Filter content icon to choose an app from the list.

    Note: You might see a different list depending on what apps your organization deploys from Connections and other products.

  • Make use of the To Do List, Events, and Recommendations apps next to the stream. Learn how by clicking the Actions icon next to each app and select Help. If you remove one of these apps and want to add it back, click Customize.

  • Within an update, click any linked text or graphics to go to its source in Connections.

Tip: If your organization deployed Component Pack for Connections, the Important to Me bar is displayed at the edge of the screen. Hover over a person's avatar to see action items and their business card, or click an avatar to go to a community's landing page.
