Viewing colleagues and document updates
harmon.ie helps you to stay up-to-date with your colleagues, using the Updates view.
Note: To view the Updates view, you must have a configured SharePoint social server.
What kind of updates can I see?
The Updates view lists recent activities that may interest you, including:
Updates made by your SharePoint colleagues: status updates, sharing interests, tagging, Note Board posts, tagging with my interests, rating, job title change, manager change, new blog post, new membership, birthday alerts, workplace anniversaries, new colleagues, and profile updates.
Tapping a user image opens this user’s Profile Info.
Note: You can configure the types of activities for which you want to receive alerts in the Updates view using the SharePoint web interface, under My Profile > Edit My Profile (scroll down to Activities I am following).
Changes in SharePoint libraries that you follow: new document created or document updated.
Tapping a document name opens its Document Info popover. Tapping a document location opens that location in the Browse view.
How do I know that there are new updates to read?
A red dot next to the Updates view indicates that there are new updates. The number in the red dot shows how many new updates there are.
The updates that were added to the Updates view since you last visited it are highlighted.
To filter the updates view:
By default, you see all types of updates. Two filters allow you to filter the updates view:
- Documents filter. Tap to only see document updates.
- Colleagues filter. Tap to only see your colleagues’ updates.
Note: The Colleagues filter is only available when working with SharePoint 2010.
To view updates made by a certain person:
- View the profile information of this person.
- Swipe the details area of the business card, or tap the Updates icon () to view the SharePoint updates made by this person, as well as SharePoint documents he/she changed.
Note: You are only notified with document changes in SharePoint libraries that you follow.
To remove a library or a folder from the updates list:
To unfollow a SharePoint library or folder, Edit a favorite location and slide Follow Location to OFF.
How often does the Updates view update?
By default, the Updates view refreshes once an hour. To change the interval between retrieving the activities updates from the SharePoint server:
- Tap Settings > Updates.
- Tap Interval and select another interval from the picker.
- Tap Done to set the new value or Cancel to cancel the operation.
Is following libraries & folders recursive?
Depends on your settings. When you choose to follow a library or a folder, check Add and Follow with Sub Folders to follow subfolders as well. Edit a favorite location to change the recursive setting.
