With communities, you can interact with people who share your interests.
What makes a community?
Communities are groups of people with a common interest. A community with open access is available for everyone in your organization to join, while membership of a restricted community is limited to a particular group. You can also start a community in your organization with moderated access, allowing you to control membership and manage access to the community's resources. Public communities and moderated communities are visible to all users, but restricted communities can only be seen by community members.
Whether you are added to or joining a community or starting one of your own, you can use these features to get the most out of your experience:
- Want to see which communities you belong to?
- From the navigation bar, click Communities.
- In the My Communities tab, click the Filter by icon , and select I'm a Member from the list.
- Bring information and ideas into your community by sharing files and bookmarks with fellow members, and adding forum and blog entries.
- As a community owner, you can do the following actions:
- Add or remove members of the community. All members of the community can view the list of people who belong to the community.
- Add apps to a community to make extra functionality available to members.
- Organize community membership using subcommunities to create smaller subsets of members.
