Activity Stream



The Activity Stream allows everyone collaborating in a model to keep track of all changes and comments performed by all team members, while being away, in rich and meaningful way. A time line lists all activities sorted chronologically. Each activity contains a representative icon categorizing the story types and a link to navigate easily to the object mentioned.


Before you start

The Activity Stream is available in the Modeler desktop application as well as in the cloud website for customers with a Modeler Collaboration Services subscription or in Trial mode. It is displayed for both, Editors and Contributors.
