What is a “Community Group”?

Community Groups are intended for wide-open access. By default, they are set to allow access to any user, as well as be visible by any user, even those that are not already assigned to the group. Generally you will associate a community group to a community page.

Create a “Community Group”

To create a “Community Group”:

  1. Log into AKO/DKO.
  2. Click on ‘Create a Site’ located within the toolbox section within the AKO/DKO homepage.
  3. Select “Component’’.
  4. Click on ‘Next’.
  5. Select “Community”.
  6. Click on ‘Next’.
  7. Fill out all the required fields.

If you do not have the ability to create a community group directly, you can create a community group indirectly by creating a community site. To do this:

  1. Login into AKO/DKO.
  2. Click on ‘Create a Site’ located within the toolbox section within the AKO/DKO homepage.
  3. Select “Site”.
  4. Click on ‘Next’.
  5. Select “Community Site”.
  6. Click on ‘Next’.
  7. Fill out all the required fields.

Once your community site is created, you can delete all the other components that you do not need such as the page or folders.
