Activity Stream

The Activity Stream feature helps you keep better track of what is happening on the wiki and is available by default on the wiki home page. The listed events include:

  • page creation
  • page edit
  • page delete
  • comments and annotations events
  • attachment events
  • the posts shared with other users via the {{shareMessage /}} macro. 

More information about message sharing and the way you can follow other users' posts is available in the documentation page about the "User Status".


On the main wiki, the Activity Stream displays the events from other sub-wikis, provided the current user has view rights on the documents. Also, the sub-wiki pretty name is displayed next to the page name. 

By hovering any event listed in the Activity Stream, you will notice an arrow icon in the top right corner. If you click on it you will be able to see an expanded list containing the changes performed by the user on that particular page: the edits (including the object changes) or the recently added comments, annotations and attachments.


In order to see the new comment, annotation or the name of the attached file, hover the corresponding sub-event and click on the arrow icon in the top right corner.

If you want to see the changes made on the content or the objects of a page, a diff is available by clicking on the "see changes" link next to the corresponding event.
