Blog: you can write a blog post to share ideas and thoughts that are longer than what status updates can accommodate. Typically shorter than a wiki page, a blog post can contain up to 65536 characters. Blogs are a means for you to:

  • Post your view or thoughts on a specific topic.
  • Publish regular news and updates.
  • Evaluate and summarize events or projects for your team.

For more information about Blogs in SAP Jam, refer to section 4.1.9 Blog posts in SAP Jam Collaboration User Guide

Wiki: You can create wiki content and share it on a group feed or your own profile wall. When others view your wiki, they can choose to follow it so that they see immediate feed activity whenever you update it or another user posts a comment on it. Wikis can include different types of text, tables, pictures, or video content. In addition, you can attach any type of file to a wiki page or insert a dynamic widget. Users can assign existing tags to a wiki page or create their own ones.

For more information about Wikis in SAP Jam, refer to section 4.1.10 Wiki pages in SAP Jam Collaboration User Guide

Discussions: Discussions can be created within groups and consist of different threads created by users and may contain an undefined number of interlaced answers. Discussions use a generic forum format for enabling any protracted discussion on a specific topic. Users who create a new thread can assign existing tags to that thread or create their own ones. Users can watch all threads in a group by e-mail notification. Use discussions to do the following:

  • Discuss strategies for new initiatives.
  • Exchange opinions and discuss with many people.
  • Obtain feedback.
