Author API Events


Fires when an Activity in the Activity list is clicked.

You would want to be notified about this event firing, because you might want to take some action when the author selects an Activity, for example.

When the event has fired, you can use event.preventDefault() to prevent the Activity from being opened.


// Standard usage to listen to the event
authorApp.on('open:activity', function (event) {
    console.log('This code executes when an Activity has been clicked.');

// Prevent navigating to a new page
authorApp.on('open:activity', function (event) {
    if (shouldNotOpenActivity) {

Callback arguments

  • activityJson object

    JSON of the Activity being opened.
