Recommended Posts

When you click on an activity stream, the steam customization bar appears.

Here is a list of the options for changing the custom search criteria for activity streams from the stream customization bar:

Show me: -- this is not where you filter out Calendar events.

  • For all but "Content I Follow," the system default is "Items only"
  • For "Content I Follow," the system default is " "Content items, comments, and reviews."  Comments and reviews (the system-defined feature) are not supported on Ballet Alert!

    • Events (Calendar)
    • Blog Entries

You can customize "Topics," "Events," and/or "Blog Entries" by clicking on the little wheel, then clicking the "Select" button which will allow you to narrow your options.  (We only have one calendar.)  Step-by-step instructions to select topics is included in this thread.
