Service Manager


Using the Social Board

Use the Social Board to post messages to users and view messages posted by other users. You can also create conversations amongst users within a team, group, or role.

The administrator must activate the Social Board before you can send or receive messages.

The Social Board workspace enables the following:

Activity streams and real-time feed:

Notifies affected users when relevant business services are out or degraded.

Makes users more aware of things that are important to them (such as escalations, status updates, and so on).

Reduces the time spent on tasks related to finding information and tracking updates.

Social community and collaboration:

Encourages users to collaborate and provide peer-to-peer support with both real-time and archival knowledge to drive greater productivity.

Lets users help each other within a managed community and service as a team.

Integrated service management workflows:

Create incidents, knowledge articles, or any other standard or custom business object and post updates from business objects.

Social as PaaS:

Extend the Social Board to custom business objects and business processes.

For social notifications to work correctly, all application servers should use either HTTP or HTTPS. Mixed mode is not supported.
