Following up on one of the things we disscused on the community call:

Activity wall

    Can we streamline the actvity on the activity wall in a way that
eliminates some of the noise and allows us make it more useful for
showing what is happening in courses? At the moment it pulls in a lot
of general activity.

    Could be a very powerful tool

    What does the community see as being important/valuable activity

    One of the changes being made this week (monday) will be the
ability for users to filter the wall, and allow users to create
threaded conversations. -- http://pad.p2pu.org/SowTorontoDev --
filters have to go in before monday

    Do we want to display, by default, certain things? Or all do we
want, for example, only to have status updates or group information?

    Can this decsion be made by the person who creates the group?

    But what events/activities do we choose to display?

    Zuzel will send a mail to the dev list to get feedback, but will
need to implement something by Monday.

There are 4 different kinds of activities in the wall:

* messages posted to the wall by organizers and participants (soon
threaded to allow discussions not related to tasks to happen inside a
* activity related to tasks (creation of new tasks, non minor editions
to tasks, threaded comments around tasks)
* activity that is shared by the organizers from the external links
the group is subscribed to.
* activity related to new faces interested on the course (someone is
following the course)

We have to decide which of this will be in by default on the wall, and
with can be seen or filtered for quickly access by clicking on
predefined filters (e.g. See activity related to [everything],
[messages], [tasks], [subscriptions], [people]).
