Follow these easy steps to create your own customized stream.

  1. From the News page, click the plus sign to the right of the streams. You'll see a two-column layout with suggested stream content on the right.
  2. Enter a name for this stream, for example, Water Cooler, New Products, Team Activity, and so on.
  3. Drag and drop items from the Suggested People and Places in the right column, add one or more tags you want to follow, or use the Search box to find specific items you want to follow in this stream. For tips about how to find and follow useful things, see Follow People, Places, and Content or Following a Tag.
  4. If you want to receive a notification every time there is a new item in this stream, select Mobile and/or Email from Updates at the top of the page. For more information, see Email or Stream Notifications?
    Tip: We strongly recommend leaving Email unselected, which is the default; otherwise, your email notifications could get overwhelming pretty quickly.
  5. To save this new stream, click Done.


You can add to, edit, or delete this stream any time you want.
