MyActivities allows you to track and manage all of your message board and search activities in one place. You can launch MyActivities by using CTRL-M once you have logged into any VSPN members-only area. The tabs are the same as you see in MyRecent on the message board menu page with tabs for discussions you viewed or subscribe to, discussions you have started or commented on. It is a great way to find those posts you would like to follow but forgot to subscribe to!

For VSPN members, MyActivities can only be accessed once you have logged into a members-only area. The VSPN main page at this time does not require logging in, so you will need to go to the Library or Message boards first, login and then you can use CRTL-M to launch MyActivities. You will also need to make sure you allow pop-ups from www.vin.com to use MyActivities, as it will launch into a pop-up window.
