The Groups Directory page allows you to view available groups for you to join. From the directory page, you can view the groups you belong to in the My Groups section, or find groups to join using the Group Categories and Browse Groups sections.
Your organization can organize groups by custom categories that fit your organization, making it easier for you to discover and participate in relevant groups.
Hover over the category to see the description of the category.
Once you find a group category that sounds interesting to you, click the category tile to view all groups within that category.
The category page will open with all groups within that category.
You can use the Browse Groups section on this page to search and view groups within the selected category.
Looking for a specific group? You can browse all groups using the Browse Groups section on the Groups Directory page. Use the search bar to enter your search criteria, which will search on the group name and description.
You can also choose to sort the list of groups to easily find the group you are looking for. The sort defaults to sort alphabetically by Name, but you can choose to sort by Date Created, Member Count, Category, or Access.
From this section, you can also:
- View the number of group members in the upper right corner
- Click the hyperlinked group name to view the details page for that group
- Click the hyperlinked Added by user name to view the profile of the group creator
- Click the hyperlinked Category to view all groups in that category
- Click the hyperlinked Created date to search for all groups created on that date
You can instantly join any groups that are marked as Public access. You can request to join groups that are marked as Private, and a group administrator will need to approve your request before you are added as a group member. If you see a group marked as Hidden, you are already a member of that group! Hidden groups will only display to group members, and new members must be invited to join the group.
The My Groups section displays the groups you belong to. You can quickly navigate to your groups by clicking the hyperlinked group name within the section. The My Groups section defaults to sort from largest to smallest Member Count, but you can change the sort or use the search bar at the top of the section to find your desired group quickly and easily!
Note: The My Groups section is also available on the dashboard. For more information on the dashboard, check out the CommUnity | Dashboard article.
