Filter and view articles

In Space articles can be targeted to certain teams or locations when published.

However you can easily switch the default viewing setting to view all the articles regardless of targeting.

  1. Click blog.png on the navigation bar to go to Blog.

  2. Use the For me toggle to display either all articles or only those targeted to you based on your team or location.
