How do team feeds differ from private feeds?

Team Feeds

  • Feed participants are your team members.
  • All data (such as feed description, feed updates, discussions, files) is visible and accessible by anyone invited to your team.
  • Will be visible on your feed participants' Timeline, under your team.
  • Team members will only need to accept the invitation to your team. After that, they will instantly get access to all team feeds.
  • If you setup recurrence settings for a team feed, all team members will receive regular reminders to update that feed.

    Example: Manager John created "Weekly Reports" team-wide feed. He set up reminders on Fridays.

    Result: 
    John: will receive weekly reminders to update the feed, will be able to write comments to teammates' updates, will be able to view reports from all team members, as well as team members will also read weekly updates shared by their supervisor John.

    Team member: will receive weekly reminders, will be able to write updates, will read what other team members contributed to the feed. Also every team member will be able to view and write comments to each others updates and will see comments by John addressed to his/her updates.


Private Feeds 

  • All data (such as feed description, feed updates, discussions, files) is visible and accessible only by those with "Can View" rights.
  • People with "Can Update" rights but without "Can View" rights will not be able to view what others contributed to such feed.
  • Private feed participants may need to confirm their participation to every feed you invite them to.
  • Only those who have been added to "Can Update" section will receive regular reminders to update a feed (if it has been setup as recurrent).
  • Those with "Can View" rights will not receive regular reminders to update a recurrent feed, but they can add comments.

    Example: Manager John created "Weekly Reports" feed and added team members with "Can Update" but not "Can View" rights. He set up reminders on Fridays.
    Also John added himself and his supervisor Olivia without "Can Update" but with "Can View" rights.

    Result: 
    John and Olivia: won't receive weekly reminders to update the feed, will be able to write comments to teammates' updates, will be able to view all updates from all team members.

    Team member: will receive weekly reminders, will be able to write updates, but won't be able to view what other team members contributed to the feed. Also every team member will be able to view comments by John and Olivia only if addressed to his/her updates.
