Stream features I don't understand

Iron Contributor

I'm just starting to use Stream this month. There are some things I don't understand.

  1. What use is the Recommended bar on the home screen? I don't need recommendations. I just need a searchable list of my Streams.
  2. Why don't my most recent Streams show up on the home screen? I've made a dozen new Steams over the last few days, but they don't show up under All or Created by me, etc.
  3. Why, when I try to add a Stream to my favorites, does it come back with "Something went wrong..."
  4. Why is Microsoft spending a zillion dollars on AI to help me plan a dinner party, when I just want to get my work done?

1. It is to highlight key content items that may be high value. Just like the landing page for Word/Excel/PowerPoint.
2. If they're not there, they should be. File a support ticket with Microsoft.
3. Try in a different browser, if this continues file a support ticket with Microsoft (it works fine for me)
4. The Stream landing page is essentially similar to the pages for Word/Excel/PowerPoint.

@KevinCrossman thank you for indulging my micro-rant. (No pun intended. Seriously. Though now that I see it, it kind of makes me giggle.) Your responses make perfect sense. I'll try to simmer down now.

Merry Monday!
