Is it possible to see who is online or within the community?

Good day everyone,

Is it possible to see who is online and currently active in a community?

I see this as a way for users to connect with others.

Thank you,

Hi @Toby,

 

I think you could handle this use case by writing some custom code. Both Lithium APIs (v1, v2) offer resources to query the online/offline status of a user:

 

 

You only have to check, if access the user id at the widget/module is possible.

Maybe some older posts with similar subjects will help you to determine your next steps.

 

Cheers,

Hi Toby!

 

We do have a widget to show users who are currently online in the community:

 

 <component id="forums.widget.users-online"/>

 

You just need to add this in Studio under Page per the instructions in our documentation here:

FYI: The online users widget @MaureenD described adding contains a link to view all community online users and that leads to this page: https://community.lithium.com/t5/forums/usersonlinepage

So yes, that information is available
