What this article is about

This article regards home pages and the difference between the My Stream and Primary page home pages. The home page is set up by your content managers and can be customized to include many different pieces of information.

What is a home page?

After signing in to Happeo you will land on either the My Stream -page or a Primary page. This will depend on your Happeo environment settings defined by your company administrator

My Stream vs. Primary Page

The My Stream option showcases a user's My stream and My news. but the Primary page does have some additional options and is the more traditional intranet-style landing page. 

If users land on the Primary page and do not have access to it, they will be routed to a Secondary page (in whatever order the Secondary pages are received from the server). If the user does not have access to the Primary page or to any Secondary page, they will be routed to My stream. The order is, therefore, the following:

  1. Primary page
  2. If a user doesn't have access to the Primary page → Secondary page
  3. If a user doesn't have access to any Secondary pages → My stream

To learn more about what type of content is recommended on either the Primary page or My stream you can navigate to this article which differentiates between the modern and traditional intranet.

What does a home page (as a Primary page) look like?

Each home page that is set as a Primary page will look unique and depends on how your content managers have designed it. Even if your administrator has set the landing page to a Primary page you can always access My stream through the Channels menu.

As each home page is different and can be updated by your content managers you can always provide feedback internally about how to make the home page relevant and useful.
