Here's a quick guide for learning how to find stuff you need.


You can make use of the following ways to keep track of, and find, everything that's important to you. And remember, as you develop behavior patterns in the FileMaker Community, it will recommend relevant content, people, and places based on your activity.


Tip: Browse the people and places that someone with similar interests follows by going to their profile page and click Content/People/Places > Following. This is a great way to find things you might also want to follow.


Search for something specific:

Let the community finish your thought with its predictive searching feature. When you click the Spotlight search in the upper right and then start typing, you search everything in the community and see the most closely related items in the results. You can scroll the Content list to find what you need. Or click something listed below People or Places.


Browse for something more general:

There are a few ways you can browse people, places, and content. To browse your own content and places you follow, click your avatar in the upper right and then Your Content or Your Places. Once you get there, you can use the options in the left sidebar to narrow the results by how they relate to you. For example, did you author the content? Did you participate in the discussion? Or, do you want to look at all content in the community?


Bookmark items:

From any piece of content, you can create a bookmark by clicking Actions > Bookmark from the upper right-hand menu. Later, to see the content you've bookmarked, just click the Spotlight search at the top right. From there, click Bookmarks. If you don't see your bookmarked item listed there, click Show all my bookmarks. Be sure to read Using Bookmarks to learn how to bookmark like a pro.


See your History and Suggestions:

You can look at your Jive browsing history by clicking the Spotlight Search at the top right and then selecting History. If you don't see what you need from the list, click Show all my recently viewed content. You can also click Suggestions to see your frequently viewed items.
