How do I know if there is Activity in my Storm?

Use the Activity panel to stay up to date on the latest changes made to your Storms.

From your Dashboard:

When the Activity panel is open in the Dashboard, you will see a summary of all of the most recent activity across all of the Storms that you are a participant in.
