Last time a user logged on

Hi!

I'm using EP 5 sp 6 and we are using the CM module to show news on our intranet. We wont to have a different color on the news items that are new since last time the user logged on to the portal. Therefor i'm wondering if it is any possibility to get this information in the XSL file which I'm using for showing the content. We are using the standard XMLForm iview.

Hope someone can help me!

Regards, Anders

    Hi Anders,

    not exactly your approach but have you already thought about your users subscribing to a news folder or taxonomy ? With that, each user will get all new items in an extra iView ('recent notifications') and can explicitely decide when to remove what item from the list.

    Cheers,

    Joerg

    Hi Anders,

    I've another suggestion, which is more or less a workaround.

    Did you consider to use the read (readbyme) property to get such a function.

    It is a flag, which is indicates if a document (news) is already read by the user or not. But it doesn't care on the last visit of the user...

    Regards,

    Stefan

    • Hello,

      I have a question to the readbyme-flag:

      Which value for the property "readbyme" must be typed into the textfield from the advanced search to get:

      a) all documents, which aren't read until the search

      b) all documents, which are read.

      We use an EP5.0 SP6 Portal, the language is German and I tried following terms, which doesn't give back a correct search result:

      for a) and b):

      false - true

      no - yes

      nein - ja

      falsch - richtig

      0 - 1

      Regards,

      Arnold

    Hi!

    Thanks for your replay, but this does not solve my problem. I want to let the user know which news items that is new since last time he/she logged on.

    Regards, Anders
