Overview

The Groups Directory is available from the site banner at the top of the screen. You can browse this page to create new groups or explore existing groups in Commons.

This page presents a listing of group teasers to which a user belongs or that the user might join. Invite-only groups are not included. Use the filter at the top to search for a specific group by title. On the right side is a prominent button that allows you to create a new group, along with activity in some of the most recent active groups.

Details

A group can be visually identified by its logo. The group teaser also displays your status/relationship with the group, a description, some recent content items and some avatars representing the groups' membership.

Some action buttons are available in the lower right of the group teaser, which can be used to follow the group's content, or to request membership (if the group is set up to allow requests).
