SAP Jam Lighbox Feature Explained


The lightbox is a user-interface mechanism that helps a user open a piece of content (eg. wiki, blog, document) in a simulated “pop-up”, then close it quickly to continue without losing the previous context, such as viewing the overview page and browsing the Jam feeds.  


Jam opens most content in a lightbox when user clicks on the content on the overview page or in the feeds.  

Exceptions are questions, ideas, discussions, tasks, events, polls, videos, and business records, which always open with a full page refresh without the lightbox.


The lightbox behavior is determined by Jam automatically, and not configurable by the admin or the end-user.   

You can’t control the behavior by forcefully including or excluding the “?lightbox=true” in the URL.  Jam decides which context the lightbox applies.
