I have not logged into Symantec/Veritas community forums in a month or so.
I still have my logon info and account activity for the older symantec forums. But when Veritas took over a 6-12 months ago, they took my recent account activity/posts etc and ported them over to the new site.
These were accessible until as far as I Can tell about a month ago where I could login and go to 'My Account Activity' to see my posts.
How do I go about searching my account activity/posts? There should be 20-30. I see zero.
And, I see my screenname was truncated. Is there a character limit for screennames?
If you want to Feedback on VOX itself and not specifically having questiosn about BE then this is where you can do it:
I'm looking at your profile and see that you have quite a bit of activity and posts. Can you share a screen shot of what you are seeing? And yes screen names now have a character limit so some usernames were truncated. On the old community there were some usernames that had over 40 characters.
If you go to your profile and click recent activity and then click see all it should bring you to this link:
I see 10 pages of activity dating back to early 2013. Is this what you are looking for?
Also I can change your username to something else if you like, but as you pointed out there is a character limit so it'd most likely have to be something new.
if I may join the discussion...
I was looking for something exactly like marianne posted in her picture. its similar to what rkingsland links to, but is grouped by discussions, so its not as cluttered and long.
the closest thing I found to it is the 'my subsciptions' page, but it doesn't show discussions from before the switch to vox.
to a reply? there should be a "choose file" button below the text field. Looks like your permissions didn't migrate over as they should have. I've updated them now and you should see the option to attach files.
Ryan...thanks for your reply.
I will not change my name at this juncture (although may do so later)
I have attached a .doc showing my experience and how to see all my activity.
(When I clicked on 'My Profile', the next page didn't have a 'recent activity' link)
Hi Larry, looks like there was the same issue with your account. On the old community over the years the different community managers just continued to add more and more stuff rather than manage it. So the old community ended up with a HUGE list of custom permission levels, many of which were redundant or just unnecessary. Part of the launch of the new commnity was redifining permission levels and creating a concise list that made sense and then moving our community members from the old to the new. Some missed connections were expected to happen and I've been going through and correcting the ones we come across. You should now see the option to add attachments.
Thanks, I now see a "browse" button, on the bottom left, below the text box.
May I ask why everybody doesn't have permission to attach by default? I suspect lots of casual users will be frustrated here.
This goes back to user permission levels. There are triggers that assign permissions. The lowest permission level is "registered", meaning a user has a profile in VOX - they have registered and will automatically be given that permission level. The registered permission level does allow attachments. So in this case it goes back to how the users in the old community were migrated over. Most likely what happened was you were never placed into a permission level but rather were given overrides as an individual on the old community so when you were migrated over you never got placed into the proper permission level here. If anyone were to go create a new account through VAM right now they would have the ability to attach a file to a new discussion.
