Details

If you are a Group Organizer for the group, then at the top will be a couple of tabs from which you can navigate to pages to administer the group and also edit the group basic information.

At the top is a Header area which shows the group logo and title, and the group organizer(s). In the upper right is the Details icon; when you click on this a Details popup area will be exposed showing the purpose/description of the group and additional information. Also in this Details area are action links to perform some common actions, such as joining (or leaving) the group and contacting the group organizer

Beneath the header, on the left, is a search box from which you can search the contents of the group, and also a pane that contains navigation links to the sub-pages of the group. The sub-pages will typically list information about the group or its content, and they are documented separately. If the group organizer has provided any books or links, they will appear below the Group Pages block.

On the right, immediately below the header, are green buttons with which you can create new content for the group. You can create new documents, new posts, new questions, and (if you are a group organizer) new to-do lists.

Beneath the content-creation buttons is a listing of recent content for the group. This pane is headed by a few tabs with which you can limit the types of content on the listing. For example, clicking on the "Docs" tab will restrict the listing to just documents. You can use the filter and sort links under the tabs to control browsing even further.
