      In addition to what Jürgen mentioned, click on your user name on the very top of the page and click Preferences and in the General Preferences make sure the radio button Everything in my communications page is on.

      Jeevan,

      Nice document and thanks for putting this together.

      Monst,

      When you login you will see your name at the top centre of the page. Click on your name and it will display various tabs and one of them is "Content". You should be able to see your activities here also as well in the "Activity" tab.
