The Home Stream is the section where you have the consolidated view of the activities in which you are a part of. All the activities in which you have participated by a comment, or in which you have been @mentioned or invited as a guest or individually shared with you appear in 'Streams to me'. All the posts initiated by you in any form as a Status/ Task/ Note/ Event or an email shared by you all appear in 'Streams by Me'.
You can post private posts or individual messages/ tasks/ notes or events from the Me Tab. If you select a group from the drop down, the content will be posted in the Group Stream. Instead, if you just tag a particular person or a set of users to the post, it will be a private post between you and the respective users.
When you post a private post to others or share an email to others, all of them will appear under 'Streams by Me' and will not be linked to any of the groups.
Streams to Me is the consolidated view of the following:
- All posts in which you have added comments
- The posts in which you were @mentioned
- All emails shared with you
- Posts in which you are an Invitee
- Individual Events
- Private Posts/ Notes in which you are individually mentioned, and without your Group being a part of it.
The 'Streams to Me' tab will be available only in the Streams homepage. The specific groups will have only the consolidated view of all the posts made to that group.
You can easily view the 'Unread' posts or the posts in which you were '@mentioned' by selecting the respective tabs.
