Individual activities in certain categories, such as journal articles, books, funded grants, honors & awards, memberships, and courses taught will appear by default in the UICollaboratory. These are activity categories where the activities are set to appear in the UICollaboratory. (see list of Activities appearing In UICollaboratory). By default, the individual activities in the categories are set to public, and thus will appear in the UICollaboratory. If there are individual activities that you do not want public, you may hide them by making them private. Activities in other activity categories are defaulted to private.
