How can you filter out the current user from an activity stream feed?

Joseph Garcia July 6, 2018

Does anyone know a way to filter out the current user from an activity stream feed?  I want to setup an activity stream for the whole team that only shows what other people are doing.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

Hello Joseph,

The currentuser() variable for username is currently not possible in the activity stream filters, the progress on this function as a new feature is being tracked here:

It looks like the issue is currently under code review, make sure to add yourself as a watcher to get updates on the status.

This seems like a pretty basic functionality that should be implemented and it is taking how long to do it?
