Hitachi Vantara Community User Guide > Getting More Out of Content
Content is the bread and butter of Jive, so learning to create, promote, and manage it effectively is a cornerstone of Jive collaboration.
Choose a content type based on your collaborative goals.
Create and respond to content in Jive and earn status points in the community.
In the same way you can share content with people, you can share it with one or more places.
In the HDS Community, People post Content in Places. This means that all content (discussions, documents, blog posts, and so on) are published in a "container" place (space, sub-space, group, or project). All places have visibility permissions set by the place's owner(s) that determine who can see the content posted in that place.
Documents, blog posts, questions, and discussions have different purposes and rewards.
Status updates let you interact with others in the community. You can also delete your own updates, see who liked them, see other people's updates, and several other fancy things.
Categories associate content with keywords for easier searching later.
Use the Save As Draft feature to quickly jot down and save your thoughts in documents or blog posts. Then, you can come back later to edit and publish your content. You can also collaborate with others on saved drafts before publishing them.
Use questions and discussions to ask questions or introduce new ideas to the community.
Jive is a powerful tool for creating and uploading documents, collaborating on them with others, and managing versions.
Use blog posts to express ideas or opinions and get community feedback. If you've got something to say, get your blog going!
