An activity table is a special kind of text component that gives project members quick access to a focused set of artifacts, action items and work products.
An activity table includes organized links to up-to-the-minute information about work that is going on in the project. You can add, remove or change these links with the HTML editor that comes with every text component.
You can add static links to particular artifacts, or you can link to a search query. When you link to a query, you enable project users to get all the results of the query with a single click.
The activity table template is just a suggestion for how you might want to organize your information. You can change any of its properties to support the way your project members work.
