Recently Updated Dashboard Macro

Add the Recently Updated Dashboard macro to a page to show a list of pages, blogs, files, and comments that have been created or edited recently. 

This is a legacy macro, and was previously used to display recently updated content on the dashboard. It is very similar to the Recently Updated Macro, except that it has a tabbed view, that lets you switch between all updates, updates from your favorite spaces, updates from your network (the people you follow), or particular space categories.
