In our recent blog, Three Ways to Elevate Your Jive Experience with Extension Pack, we mentioned that we built the Jive Extension Pack with three primary objectives in mind:
- Elevate the community experience
- Simplify workflows and processes within Jive
- Create essential connections.
The Three Ways blog covered the first point. Today, we’ll look at how the Jive Extension Pack can make your admins’ and users’ lives easier. There are a variety of extensions within the library that serve this purpose.
Let’s start with the Ghost Publish plug-in and Delegate Access add-on. These extensions do precisely what they sound like: allow users to blog or post in someone else’s name. This is particularly useful for executive communications and collaboration between and amongst communications teams. The permission-based plug-in streamlines workflows and prevents delays in communication by allowing community members to post on behalf of others when they’re not available. Let's look at a few of the new capabilities added to this extension.
This feature enables the global enable or disable of the Ghost Comment functionality across all places in Jive. You can use the "Disabled" option so that Ghost Comment can be enabled on a per place basis. That allows you to keep the ghost commenting functionality restricted to a narrower set of people who need to use it.
When enabled, users (Editors) will ONLY be able to publish/comment on behalf of other users (Authors) if there is a relationship between them. The list of Ghost Relationships is also maintained on the main configuration page.

Another example is the Enhanced Editor plug-in, a.k.a. EditPro. A favorite of Corp Comms teams, the EditPro plug-in makes it easy to create feature-rich content and news stories. Its enhanced functionality, like an image gallery and tap navigation, make publishing in Jive similar to more complex content management systems. That means your community members can build beautiful, engaging content with more features and less of a learning curve.
These plug-ins are just a few of the ways to make it easier to collaborate and communicate effectively within Jive. You can explore more plug-ins and add-ons in the the Jive Extension Pack Space.
