The settings guide automatically makes the necessary settings for you to get started with the social network.

Learn more about the settings guide.

If the guide is already running on the website, the "Get started" button will not appear.

User fields

Information about users is exposed through user fields in the social modules. User fields can both be linked to existing attributes in the directory service or stored only in SiteVision.

Selected user fields create a large and a small view. Depending on space, these are used by default in various social modules that present user fields. In each individual module, custom settings can also be made for the user fields that are to be presented.

Click on Add user field to add a user field.

Limits

Maximum file size (MB)

Type a value for the size of the files that can be uploaded into groups in Social Collaboration. Enter the value in MB. The default value is 10 MB.

Maximum character count for post and comments

Enter the maximum number of characters each post or comment can have in Social Collaboration. The default value is 300 characters.

Number of characters before view more/less is activated in posts and comments

You can specify how much of a post or comment is displayed without users being actively required to click to see the entire text. The number of characters is not an exact number, SiteVision rounds up to 50 characters above the value you specify. This allows text to be displayed in its entirety, even if it exceeds the specified number of characters.
The default value is 300 characters.
