Your Higher Logic Vanilla (Vanilla) community includes a community-wide Activity page that shows all recent activity from users across your entire Vanilla community. In this article, you'll learn more about this page, and how to access it.
📝 NOTE: If you'd like to focus on the activity of a specific user, you can view it from their profile. To learn more about user profiles, check out this article.
📝 NOTE: If the community Activity page and profile activity list aren't a good fit for your Vanilla community, you can contact Vanilla Support to have them turned off.
There are two permissions associated with the community Activity page and user profile activity list; users must belong to Roles with these permissions to perform the associated action.
