Learn how to communicate with other team members using built in tools such as @mention to let people know you mentioned them in text you're typing, using the comment field to comment on content, and the like function to let people know your tagged their content as something you liked.
- [Instructor] When working in a team environment, communication's always important and Confluence offers a number of different ways to communicate with one another. We saw in the previous movie how you can invite people to your space. They'll get a notification and an email message. But there are ways to communicate where you'll see instant notifications and be able to collaborate even, something we'll talk about in the next movie. For now though, let's look at one popular option. And that is to Like something you see. Which sends a notification to the person who created it, as well as commenting.
And we're going to do it by going to one of the pages. I'm logged in here as Safeek, and I'm looking at the User Conference 2018 homepage. Now you can practice with another person on your team if you're in that environment. Otherwise sit back and watch what happens, when we go to a page. I'm going go to the About Arthur Landon, Jr. page. Now from here you can see some options like the thumbs up, Like link and clicking this means that I like this page. Now the person who created it, we can see that up at the top, Jennifer, is getting a notification that something was liked, and she can open that up.
We'll get there in a moment. Another option though is just simply write comments. Clicking in the comment field opens up this window where you can type away and format, all of the formatting options we see when creating a page. Well done Jennifer. This info will be useful. Now I could add recommendations, additional comments, for the sake of time, we'll keep it brief and click Save. And because I've commented, I see that comment now, on the page, and you can see, I can edit this, delete it, if I wanted to.
Also people looking at this page see this comment, and they can like my comment, and the notifications start flying. Let's go wee what it looks like to be Jennifer, at her end. So here we are looking at User Conference 2018, and something's happening up here in the notifications. Now, if we had been here, logged in as Jennifer while that was happening, we'd actually see the message pop up briefly, so we know exactly when notifications are coming in. They do disappear, and then the number appears up here in the Notifications icon. Click it to open them up.
And here, you can see past notifications, lots of them, and the two newest ones, highlighted in yellow, at the top. So I can see the like symbol, the thumbs up. Safeek liked About Arthur Landon, Jr., and clicking it will actually open it up so I can see what that person's referring to and the link to take me directly to that page, if I wanted to. You can also see when it happened, a minute ago. To go back to Notifications, there is a link at the top, and I can go to that newest one, oh, it looks like Safeek commented on something.
Clicking here opens it up where I can see the comment, so I don't have to go to the page. I can go to the page clicking About Arthur Landon, Jr., I can click Open, same thing would happen. And down below, I can like that comment if I want, and even reply to it. So I'm going to like the comment and reply. And just say, thanks Safeek, and reply. There we go. Notifications are still open, but I can click here in the background here on the page to close that up.
No numbers showing up. No new notifications. If I switch back, though, to Safeek and refresh this page, again, if we were logged in looking at this page while the notifications were coming in, we'd see them popping up here in our Notifications area. And sometimes it takes longer than other, but we can go up to the Notifications icon to reload those and see the newest ones here. Liking and commenting about things that Safeek started over here on the About Arthur Landon, Jr. page.
So you can see how the communication goes back and forth, quickly and easily when working in a team environment.
