Navigating the Newsfeed

This article will guide you on:

Using Newsfeed filters

Classroom newsfeed filters are available on the classroom's newsfeed page. These allow you to filter different post types in combination with other filters, such as, classrooms, hashtags etc. Thus, letting you keep track of classroom's posts more efficiently. Read this to know more about how you can filter your classroom's newsfeed.

Identifying New Posts

1. Whenever a new post is created, you can identify it in two ways:

  • A fresh post count appearing alongside the name of the classroom on the home page, and
  • A notification counter alongside the respective classroom name in the sidebar.
Identifying New Posts

2. Click the classroom's name to view the new post.

Note: You can also access the classroom by clicking on the classroom name from the sidebar.

3. You will be able to view the post on that classroom's newsfeed.

4. After you have viewed the classroom's newsfeed, the notification counter will disappear from the home page and the sidebar implying no new posts in that classroom.

Expanding conversation

When a post has many comments and replies (known as conversation), Teamie will collapse these conversations and leave only latest 2 comments that are added to the post. This is done to avoid cluttering the newsfeed with too many comments in the newsfeed.

1. Click Expand all comments to view all the comments and comment replies.

2. Teamie will list all the comments and comment replies in the post. Browse to a post as you wish.

3. In order to collapse the comments to the latest two comments only, click Collapse all comments.

4. Your post will be restored in the original state and only latest two comments will be available for you to view.

Reporting a post

As a learner, you can report inappropriate posts. When a post is reported by you, the instructor of that classroom will get a bulletin board notification and can decide to delete the reported post.

1. Click the ellipsis of the post that you want to report. It can be a normal post or anonymous post.

2. Select Report from the drop-down list.

3. A confirmation message appears.

4. The instructor of that classroom will be notified via a bulletin board notification.

Post participation analytics (Identifying users who have seen and interacted with a post)

Users can view interactions on a post in a detailed manner in addition to identifying users who have seen the post. The analytics of how different users have interacted with a post includes the following details:

  • Name
  • Seen By count (with time)
  • Total number of comments made by individual users
  • Total number of replies made by individual users
  • Last interaction date and time

Also, you can sort all the aforementioned list in either ascending / descending or alphabetical order (in case of first and last names).

Let's see how you can view participation for  a post.

1. On the homepage, click the classroom to view its newsfeed.

2. On the classroom newsfeed, click the Seen by 'n' View Participation button for the required post.

The number of users who have seen the post are shown on the post itself. For instance, in the following screenshot the number "Seen by 7" indicates that seven users have seen the post.

You can also click the Seen by 'n' View Participation button for the required post on the homepage newsfeed also.

3. The People who have interacted with this post (thought/question/task) popup opens with the following details:

  • Name
  • Seen By count (with time)
  • Total number of comments made by individual users
  • Total number of replies made by individual users
  • Last interaction date and time

4. You can also see the time at which users have seen the post by hovering over the tick mark under the Seen column.

5. The user interaction stats for a post includes the list of all the users who are part of the classroom. Tick the Only students checkbox to filter all the learners who are part of the classroom.

'Student' is a whitelabelled term for 'learner' and this may differ for different Teamie sites.

6. In case you wish to send reminders to learners who have not yet participated, click Send Reminder.

Although all users of the classrooms will be listed in the stats table, only learners who have not created a comment or a reply on the post will be included in the reminder.

Users with 'Learner' will not see the option for sending reminders. This option is made for instructors to remind learners who have not yet participated on a post.

7. A Send Reminder popup opens. The Subject and reminder body field will be pre-filled with the necessary details to send a quick reminder. You can edit it as per your convenience. The reminder body will also contain the link for learners to access the post directly from the email reminder. Click Send Email to send the reminder.

8. Clicking on any column's header will sort the table by the column, and clicking again on the header will sort in reverse order. The following sorts will be done in descending order on the first click:

  • First and last name sorts will be sorted by ascending order
  • Seen (descending order of when the user have seen the post for the first time)
  • Comments (most comments comes on top)
  • Replies (most replies comes on top)
  • Last interaction date (latest interaction comes on top)
