My CommonSpot

My CommonSpot displays a personalized interactive view of current tasks, content status, searches, shortcuts, reminders, and social media updates.  Use this dashboard to save time and increase productivity by creating favorites – frequently accessed site locations or search queries – and sharing them with team members. You can view both your own and your groups' changes and pending approvals, for better team collaboration. Sites with Social Media (see the CommonSpot Administrator's Reference for details) included in their site license can create social media postings and centrally manage communications.

To access this dashboard, select this option from the pencil entrance tab, or in Author mode, click My CommonSpot in the top-level menu bar.
