Configuring the Activities Feed

Activities Feed emails are sent from Alfresco Content Services to all users, summarizing the activities they see in their My Activities dashlet. Users will not see these email unless the Activities Feed is enabled. Emails include activities in all sites they are a member of, and by people they are following. In the Admin Console, you can set the frequency with which these emails are sent, the maximum number of activities they contain, and the maximum age of the activities.

  1. Open the Admin Console.
  2. In the Repository Services section, click Activities Feed.

    You see the Activities Feed page.

  3. Set the activities properties:

    Activities Feed property Example setting What is it?
    Activity Feed Enabled Yes This enables or disables activity notifications to users using email.
    Frequency CRON Expression 0 0 0 * * ? This specifies a cron expression which defines the frequency with which users will receive Activities Feed emails. Emails are only sent if there are new activities since the last email. By default this is every 24 hours at midnight.
