Viewing Items Shared with You

UW-Eau Claire > LTS Online Help > Campus-Specific > D2L Student > ePortfolio > Viewing Items Shared with You 

There are various ways for you to discover, categorize, follow, and review content shared with you in ePortfolio

This page contains documentation on the following:


The Explore page consolidates items others have shared with you or publicly into one view. Others' shared ePortfolio items display in a list that you can sort by name or date modified, ascending or descending. Filters at the top of the list enable you to view content by item type.

From the Explore page you can:

  • Browse items and depending on your sharing permissions, view and leave comments, assessments, and edit others' items.
  • Click on a user's name to view all content shared from that user.
  • Subscribe to an item or a user.
  • Use the search field to find content. The search checks for matches within item titles, tags, descriptions, and owner names.

If you have permission to view comments or assessments on an item, the feedback activity icon appears beside items when there is comment and assessment activity.


Invites enable you to promote the content you're sharing with specific people. When you share an item with others, you also have the option to send an invite to those you're sharing your item with from the Sharing Settings dialog. See Sending Invites for more information.

An invite contains information about who shared the item, when it was shared, what type of item it is, and any description or tags that were added to it. The sender might also include a message letting you know why they shared the item.

When you receive an invite from another user to view an item in their ePortfolio, the invite displays in the Unread Invites area of your dashboard. You might also receive an email informing you of the invite. You can subscribe to the Invite RSS feed to receive updates about new invites.


Subscriptions enable you to follow activity on items or from specific people that interest you. You can subscribe to user or item activity from your dashboard, the Explore page, or your invites.

Subscribe to an item by clicking Subscribe in the context menu of the item.

Subscribe to other users by toggling the Subscribe icon beside their names.

Use the Subscriptions filter on your dashboard to view activity on items or from users you subscribed to.

Unsubscribe to items or users by toggling the  icon or click Unsubscribe.subon
