What is the difference between viewing in the Radar and visiting a group?

Jiglu has two ways of viewing information in the system:

  • The Radar: a personal home page with an activity stream that brings together all the latest contributions from groups that the user is a part of.
  • Group pages: the individual pages of contributions and index pages that help users locate information of interest in a particular group.

The Radar is best for keeping track of new information. It will automatically update as new contributions are published, let you view and respond to them or create your own new contributions.

The group pages are best for finding non-current information. Here you can view indexes of all the content that has been published and in the Discovery section use additional indexes to locate information within contributions, such as attachments, tags or links. There are also some analytics features, for example to let you follow trends in content over time.

If ever you want to open the corresponding group page from a link in the Radar, then right click on the link and choose Open in new tab or middle click.
