Article author

Guide managers can see all community activity in moderation activities.

This is a view of all actions taken by community moderators, as well as any actions taken by the community itself. For example, you can see if posts have been approved or featured by community moderators, or if someone has moved or deleted their own post. If you haven’t set up any community moderators yet, see Creating community moderator groups.

Moderation activities is a historical record of activity in the community. If you want to change any of the actions applied to a particular post or comment, you need to do that in the post or comment itself.

To view moderation activities

  1. In Guide, click the Moderate content (Moderate content) icon in the sidebar.
  2. Click Moderation activities. The Moderation activities page appears.
