Notebook is the centralized information hub for all your interactions on your network, including;
- people and content that you follow
- your conversations
- your created content
- your Files
- your Books
- your personal group
Anytime you are looking for something that you interacted with, look in your Notebook first. Here are some Tips and Tricks to consider when using your Notebook.
Keep your Notebook Organized
Create Books to help organize Notes, Tasks, Files, and Bookmarks. For example, you might be on a short-term project to deliver a new product. Create a Book specifically for that project and catalog all the Notes, Tasks, Files, and Bookmarked content related to that project within this single Book. Share this Book with your teammates. Creating project-specific Books can really help keep a project on course and ensure timely completion of your deliverables.
There are three different types of Groups on your Network:
- Personal Group - This is a group you create and its handle is unique to you. Although you may see the group handle when mentioning your group, other network members will see all the group members mentioned individually. Personal groups do not appear on the People Directory or in Discover.
- Private Network Group - This is a private group created by your network Administrator. This group behaves much like a personal group.
- Network-wide Group - This is a group created by your network administrator that is visible to everyone, in all areas of the network, including Directory and Discover.
Personal Groups are defined by you, within your Notebook. If you have a group of people that you commonly mention, create a Personal Group so that you can use one handle to mention all the members of that group.
Expand your Work/View Areas
Do you know you can expand and collapse many of the columns on Notebook? By simply using the "<" or ">" found throughout notebook, you can expand and collapse columns to create a work environment that fits your style. Look at the image below to see a few of the areas in Notebook that you can collapse and expand.
Filter + Refine Content on Recent Activity in Notebook
Recent Activity is a report of all your recent interactions on your network. This can be quite a useful report for highly-active users. Learning to use the Refine and Filter options can help you quickly locate the activity that you are looking for. This is particularly useful if your Notebook is already crammed full with Notes and other outputs of your various activities within your Network.
If you are looking for something in particular that you created or interacted with, it's best to use Notebook and Filter and Refine for a more targeted approach.
