#5428 new enhancement

Make private group activity visible in the activity stream for members of the group

Reported by: Zane Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.9.2
Component: Activity Keywords:


I see a bunch of resolved tickets where private activities were showing in the activity stream of all users. I fear that in resolving this issue you have removed the visibility of private group activities to members of that group. Not having this has a big negative impact to use of private groups since people will not see what is happening in the private group from the site activity stream (which I have at the root of my site). I appreciate any response to this request. Thank you!

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

It has always been the case that private group activity is hidden from sitewide activity streams. This is not a recent change.

There is a My Groups tab on the Activity directory that allows logged-in users to see all their groups' activity, including that from private groups.

The necessary modifications for displaying private activity on the sitewide stream are very extensive. See #3857. However, I'll leave this ticket open as a specific request related to #3857.

Fantastic. This is definitely a desired feature for usability. Thank you!

I second this. Will it be in the next release ?

(Sorry to comment here, but I have been looking all over for a solution only to end my search here. It would be extremely useful for a user to see all the group messages of all groups which he is a member of. To better understand why : this would be a great feature : in twitter you will see all the tweets of a private user if he accepted your Follow request, and in Facebook, private groups will show up in your activity stream alongside public groups. A single activity loop could then be custom to each user )

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
