Viewing Live Feed from records

Interact with the record feed in any form that has live feed enabled.

The record feed appears in a pop-up window. The record feed also appears on the record form's activity formatter if the administrator enables the record feed system property (glide.ui.show_live_feed_activity).

To access a record feed from the form, do one of the following:
  • Click the Show Live Feed button in the form header. This displays the live feed pop-up.
  • Right-click the form header and select Show Live Feed. This also displays the live feed pop-up.
  • Scroll down to the activity formatter area on the form. Click one of the following tabs:
    • Live Feed: click to show a text box to type in the feed.
    • Activity: click to show the activity summary. The activity filter determines the content in the activity summary.

  • Go to System Definition > Tables, access the table associated with the record, and verify that the live_feed dictionary attribute is set to true on the form. This adds live feed to the activity formatter.
