SharePoint 2010 My Site Activity Feed, RSS-style

The Activity feed in the My Site for SharePoint 2010 is Great – you can see at a glance what everyone’s up to and what the topics of interest are. However, it’s not that clear how you might consume it as an RSS feed…

To get your activities in RSS format, browse to the activityfeed.aspx page at http://<mysiteurl>/_layouts/activityfeed.aspx

To get the activities of your colleagues in RSS format, append the consolidated=true parameter to the query string – http://<mysiteurl>/_layouts/activityfeed.aspx?consolidated=true

Finally, if you want to get the activities of a particular user, pass in the user account using the publisher parameter – http://<mysiteurl>/_layouts/activityfeed.aspx?publisher=domain\username

Remember, in order to consume these feeds using the OOTB RSS Reader, you need to have the site running in Kerberos mode or Claims mode using Kerberos 🙂


About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
