  Social Network module settings

Managing module's general settings is performed at the page Settings > System Settings > Module Settings > Social network:

  Global settings

The tab Social Network Settings contains global module settings:

  • Follow all Feed posts by default - when this option is marked for a social network, each new event (comment, message and etc.) will "raise" this event to the Feed's top. User decides whether to Unfollow a post inside Feed. When this option is disabled, to follow the event, click Follow under the required Feed's post.
  • Allow "To everyone" Feed posts - when this option is marked, you can indicate users or user groups that may send messages to all site/account users. Please be aware that with this option enabled, there is always a risk that user can send a message to users accidentally. For example, an employee in accounting creates a message with company financial data and forgets to check and edit a recipient. All users will see this message due to the default All setting.
  • Use "All employees" as default recipient - this option enables to forward to All users by default when creating a message. Option appears when the option Allow "All employees" as option in Activity Stream/Feed is enabled.
  • Enable workgroup chats - this option enables group chats in workgroups.
  • Use full text search index in the Feed - this option enables a full text search index.
  • Parameters, configurable for each website individually
