Hitachi Vantara Community User Guide > Getting More Out of Content


Content is the bread and butter of Jive, so learning to create, promote, and manage it effectively is a cornerstone of Jive collaboration.


Creating Content

Choose a content type based on your collaborative goals.

Earning Status Points

Create and respond to content in Jive and earn status points in the community.


Sharing Content with Other Places

In the same way you can share content with people, you can share it with one or more places.


Who Sees My Stuff?

In the HDS Community, People post Content in Places. This means that all content (discussions, documents, blog posts, and so on) are published in a "container" place (space, sub-space, group, or project). All places have visibility permissions set by the place's owner(s) that determine who can see the content posted in that place.

What's the Difference Between a Document, a Blog Post, a Question, and a Discussion?

Documents, blog posts, questions, and discussions have different purposes and rewards.

Status Update Tips & Tricks

Status updates let you interact with others in the community. You can also delete your own updates, see who liked them, see other people's updates, and several other fancy things.


What are Categories?

Categories associate content with keywords for easier searching later.

How Do I Use the Save Draft Feature?

Use the Save As Draft feature to quickly jot down and save your thoughts in documents or blog posts. Then, you can come back later to edit and publish your content. You can also collaborate with others on saved drafts before publishing them.
