How do I bookmark things on the Commons?

Want to create shortcuts to certain activity items on the Commons, or bookmark things to read later? Just star them! Go to hcommons.org/activity (here’s a guide to the News Feed Page) or the Activity tab on any group page and star the items you want to save.

When you want to view your bookmarked items later, hover over your avatar, then Activity, then click on Favorites.

You can also bookmark your bookmarks by saving this URL: https://hcommons.org/members/me/activity/favorites/. Click that, and any time you’re logged in, you’ll be brought straight to your starred bookmarks on the Commons).

What’s in the News Feed section of the Commons?

News Feed page on the Commons can be accessed by clicking News Feed in the main, left-hand menu. On this page you’ll see a list of different types of site activity, including works deposited in CORE, the creation of sites and blogs, and discussion topics added to groups. You can use filters to select specific types of content you want to see. One set of filters runs across the top of the page and allows you to see activity related to members you are following, groups you are in, or discussions and status updates you were mentioned in.

The second set of filters is a drop-down menu that allows you to look at activities by specific type: Updates, Posts, Comments, New Groups, Group Memberships, New Members, New Deposits, New Group Deposits, New Group Files, Group Files Edits, Topics, Replies, New Docs, Doc Edits, and Doc Comments.
