Acivity Feed as "Module"?

Mathew.Weaver 5 years ago in Usability & Interface • updated by Mike Wentworth 4 years ago 3
Our Activity Feed does not appear to be working (it is empty):
https://earthsoft.userecho.com/feeds/feedback/en/

Is there a module that will show the X most recent events from the activity feed in a module in the sidebar? For example, we would like to have a module in the sidebar that says: "User A created new Topic xyz, User B voted on topic Abc, ..." So the user viewing the forum can see what other users are doing. It is essentially the same information as the RSS feed, just displayed directly in a module.

Thank you for idea. We thought about it. It will be like "actions log".

But current "activity feed" it is RSS feed about changes in your project. New feedback, new comment, etc.

Activity feed shows changes from public forums only. You have no public forums. That's why your activity feed is empty.

I understand why the RSS feed would be empty for a private forum.

Is there an API call that I could use to get the same information for a private forum? I'd like to be able to make a REST call to the API and have it give me the last X actions (topic, comment, vote) ... essentially the same information that the RSS feed provides (only as JSON via the API).
This would be actually useful, especially with Knowledge Bases. I think it would be cool to be able to insert any Knowledge Base on any page. For example, I created a blank forum. I can "Insert Activities From All Forums here." So one page can display all recent posts from their knowledge base.
