Primary and Secondary News Channels

How to manage the news section of your Happeo environment.

Administrators can add Primary and Secondary News Channels to Happeo. To do this go to Admin settings --> Channels. 

Primary News Channel

The Primary News Channel is added and displayed automatically to all users, however they are not automatically participants of this Channel. Adding your whole organization to the Primary News Channel by using the Google group sharing to make sure you can, for example, tag people in the posts is recommended. 

Primary News Channel has by default notification settings set to high, which means that all users added to this channel (or joined through discovery) will receive email notifications from new posts. 

Primary news Channel discovery option needs to be set to "Anyone can join" in order to work.

Secondary News Channels

Secondary News Channels can be any Channel. They are shared to users the same as any other Channel. If user is member of Secondary News Channel, that Channel will be added to the news feed on users right side of My Stream -page. 

All secondary Channels are also forced to be non-muted and non-hidden so users will always see these Channels in their Channel navigation.
