I like thinking of this as two views.  There is a lot of common code
and UI, but "show me updates to my existing activities" and "show me
brand new activities matching some search criteria" are pretty
different use cases.  In particular, I might suggest that "show me
updates to existing activities" be invoked when a new build is first
booted, and clarifying the difference between "show me brand new
activities" would be important to avoid confusing the user.
